Nigeria can lead Africa to compete in global market – Ooni 

The Ooni of Ife and co-chairman, National Council Of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria (NCTRN),Oba  Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi,   has said Nigeria can lead Africa continent to  compete in the global market.

Oba Ogunwusi said this Tuesday while unveiling Tingo Cola and Tingo Electric, flavoured carbonated and energy drinks respectively.

The drinks  are  produced by Tingo B.V. PLC, a spinoff company from Ojaja Pan Africa Limited, Lagos.

The royal father pointed out that it is possible with standard goods particularly when it comes to carbonated drinks, beverages and its likes. He said: “Nigeria has a lot to offer the world. It has been my dream from childhood to have a brand that will satisfactorily produce quality drinks that will serve Nigerians, present the country as a leader in the African market and at the global stage.

“Currently, we have the license under which we are producing Tingo Cola, Tingo Electra, Tingo Twist (Cucumber and Cranberry) and Tingo Booze Fruit Mix. All these are produced and packaged in Nigeria with recourse to our values and standards.

“They are all to be properly integrated with Ojaja bitters, Orange, Lemon/ Ginger/Orange drinks. Also, most importantly, we should all work towards elevating our home grown brands instead of demarketing them.

“I have taken it upon myself to step into the market not as businessman but as a pathfinder who will show our people how to add value for international standard in production to distribution and consumption. It is a new model which will be a win- win for everyone.

“This product is 100% made in Nigeria. This product is an exportable product that will be accepted anywhere in the world. It is a dream come through.”
