Why you should start the Business of producing Face Mark

Nigeria population is about 200 million plus and definitely, making of face mask will not be the responsibility of the Governors alone, individuals will have to show commitment. Not all states are producing face masks even the states that are producing have not produced enough quantity to accommodate all their citizens due to large population.

Many people will not want to have only one face mark and I’m not sure the Government will give more than one that means people will have to buy their own personal face mask as many as they want for themselves and family members.

Some people are already adding swag and fashion to wearing of face masks, people are wearing face masks that are made from the same fabric they are wearing at a particular time while others wear to match (the colour that matches either their bag, shoes or tops).

Some State Governors are already enforcing this, example is Governor Ayade of Cross River State and Ebonyi, Ogun State and Abuja have even joined in the no mask no going out.

Reduce the price of your face mask in other to attract increase buying. We bought from someone who was selling her own #200 per one, that’s reasonable if you ask me.
