National President, Federal Government Girls College (FGGC) Old Girls Association, Bakori, Safia Mohammed Adamu said the recently signed Africa Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) agreement by President Muhammadu Buhari would boost trade within the African sub-region.

Adamu made the remark at the 2019 Exhibition and Business Fair organised by the Abuja chapter of the association in Abuja.

Speaking at the event with the theme Looking Inwards; Promoting Potentials and Opportunities For Women in Business For Sustainable Growth and Development, Adamu called on members who were outstanding in their various vocations to connect and network to take advantage of opportunities in the private and public sectors to promote their businesses.

“In the West African sub-region, Nigeria has a large market and all we need to do is to improve on what we are doing.

“We don’t even produce enough for Nigeria itself but then we can compete very well with others. All we need is more dedication, more expectations and that dedication include improving your skills, innovation and accepting changes, being dynamic in your packaging.”
