INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

It is quite obvious to note that political and economic history of Nigeria has greeted on their trade relation as well as on the consumption patterns of the people.  The trend cannot be ignored by a meaningful study of consumer attitude patterns in Nigeria constitutes research objectives “Nigerian attitudes towards both Nigeria made goods and the foreign made in obvious.  Back to early 19th century during the Nigeria colonization era by the Britsh, before then, there had not been a specific design of the goods but the Europeans started by giving their black sentence “already used goods as composition and motivation”.

However, due to the fact that Nigerian had a positive respond motion to the use of goods produced in Nigeria.  Our colonial masters (British) fell the need to be importing foreign goods into the country (Nigerian).  This step which was taken at a stage led to the development of industries that were engaged in production of the goods.  Nigerian are working with the colonial masters in the industries.

In the course of working, these masters, great advantage are gained in the production of these goods and with the knowledge that was gained and the manufacture of those goods consumers were still having a greater demand for the foreign made ones than that of the locally made ones, this continued for a long time until the introduction of austerity (SAP) due to the economic recession.  The level of preference for the foreign made goods or set aside for occasional used and less important occasion, the demand for foreign goods was just for the fact that they are manufactured outside the country (Nigeria).

Moreso, we still go for those goods that are locally made but having foreign label as “Made in Japan, made in England, made in France” and the rest of them, irrespective of where they are manufactured.  The demand for foreign made goods was growing geometrically while that of consumers was more or less below arithmetic progression.  The great affirmative to local made goods that are labeled foreign is vivid example of this great demand of the foreign made ones.

It could now be drawn out that the consumers need myopic meaning to what exactly the foreign and locally produced manufacture goods are.  These locally made goods are then seen to for the less influence of less important in the society.  Numerous cited instance claims that the average Nigerian consumer has a relative attitude towards locally made goods and prefer imported ones.  However an urgent and positive stage should be taken to ensure that goods made in Nigeria are given a face-life to ensure constant patronage.

 

STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

From the general Introduction of topic of decision it is obvious to see that the reflect of the attitude of consumer result to understand that a well defined should be made so that this particular problem will be well defined in trying to define this for particular those in Enugu metropolis.  As mentioned earlier, it has more often than not been said that most consumers prefer imported products to the consumers made equivalent, the result to such preference on some Nigerian industries can be devastating and variable has negative influence on the Nigerian economy in both the short and long one.  Hence the preference has become a problem that requires immediate and accurate solution.
