Mr Collins Oscar
Mr. Made in Akwa Ibom

Collins Oscar’s second name should be ‘Mr. Made in Akwa Ibom’. Because of his abiding trust in the Akwa Ibom economy and his love for locally produced stuff from the State, Mr Oscar, from Oruk Anam Local Government Area of the state, braved all the odds to set up the first-ever Made in Akwa Ibom Showroom in Uyo, the capital of Akwa Ibom State.

Mr Oscar, 32, started the showroom in the heart of the city in 2018 to drive his dream for locally produced goods before he later acquired a factory in the outskirt of the city where it is being used today by entrepreneurs for their production. More than 180 entrepreneurs from the State have subscribed to the Made in Akwa Ibom Showroom and are getting some earnings from their products that are sold in the showroom.

Made in Akwa Ibom Showroom recently received the Exporters’ Registration Certificate from the Nigeria Export Promotion Council, paving the way for the export of locally produced goods in Akwa Ibom State. “We want other countries to experience Made in Akwa Ibom products,” Mr Oscar said, while celebrating the certification.

Collins Oscar studied Sociology at the University of Uyo. He is the author of the book, Idiots With B.Sc.

Collins Oscar, Akwa Ibom celebrates you for your resilience and big dreams for the State!
