The Nature’s Renaissance International Limited (NRI), a nongovernmental and socio –economic organization has urged African leaders to use African solution to solve Africa problems so as to lift the people out of poverty.
The Chief Executive Officer of NRI, Dr. Clinton Brown made this call during a formal kick-off, of the organization activity in Warri, Delta State, on Friday September 11,2020.
Dr Brown said that, “not until African starts using African resources and potentials to solve Africa problems, the continent would remain in poverty and underdeveloped.
“Africans are hardworking people but they need good leaders and good coordination of the potentials and resources to achieve the necessary development and the desired transformation.
The C.E.O. stated that, “NRI has designed a home – made products and wealth creation programme to reach out to millions of Nigerians and Africans to lift them out of poverty.
“We are hardworking people but Africa is still behind in development and also backward in technology.
“We decided to form this organization to remedy our economic situation.
“Nigeria is the strongest economy in Africa followed by South Africa, yet Africa is still behind in development when compared with Western countries and Asia.”
“Africa is blessed with abundant resources and human potentials but we need to properly harmonize them and develop a basic system to create wealth and self-reliance, stressing that we should change our mindset and start making use of our home made products and promote an ideal society that would enhance our living standard.
“Government has no solution to our problems. It is time we look inward to solve our problems.
“It is you and I that can salvage Nigeria by harmonizing our home-made products and local technology, even if we make mistakes , we should continue to improve. This is what other countries or continents did.”
“Africans can break out of poverty because we have the resources and we can achieve great technological development if we harmonize our resources and ingenuity.
“Earlier, the Delta State coordinator of Nature’s Renaissance International, Francisca Chika said, “NRI would continue to collaborate with business ventures and individuals to make business successful through marketing and empowerment.
She stressed that, “NRI business orientation was meant to enhance individual potential.
“Delta State has vibrant economy and Deltans are very enterprising people who made their marks in all spheres of life.
Chika who is also the branch manager of NRI based in Warri said that, “Warri remains a fertile ground for business to thrive.
“Apart from marketing our products we also empower people to develop their potentials particularly in business”.
