“The Federal Government should ban importation of shoes and other leather products to encourage our local works in the country,’’ he said.

He said banning importation of shoes and other leather products would revive the ailing local shoe industries and create job opportunities for many unemployed persons in the country.

He also called on the Federal Government to ensure adequate funding of the National Leather Research Institute Zaria to enable it carry out its mandate effectively.

“There is also need for the present administration to provide adequate fund for the research institute to carry out it its responsibility,’’ he said.
