Look inward, develop local contents, Obasanjo tells Nigerians



Olusegun Obasanjo

The former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo on Monday urged Nigerians to look inward and develop local content to move the country forward in spite of its current challenges.

The former President made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abeokuta.

Obasanjo said this while responding to a question on “Utah Micellar Transdermal” product presented to him by the developer,  Dr. Jonathan Obaje, a Nigerian Scientist based in Singapore.

Dr. Jonathan Obaje, former President of the Nigerians in Diaspora (NIDO), had developed a bio-technology product (transdermal) for the treatment of Arthritis as well as body and joint pains.

Obasanjo said, “We need to know what we have; one of our problems is we do not even know what we have.

“First, we need to know what we have.  We need to know their effectiveness.

”I appreciate my brother Obaje who is based in Singapore and who keeps replenishing me with the Urah product.

“It takes care of the joints as you grow old and it has helped me improve very well.

“It is very good and relieves me of what I call pains of old age.”

Obasanjo described the product as bio-technology-based and a stable emulsion with natural extracts capable of delivering a concentration of medication seamlessly through the human skin.

He further stressed the need for adequate investment in local content development to promote self-reliance among Nigerians in particular, and Africans in general.
