Over 50+ Exportable Products from Nigeria [FULL LIST]

There are exportable products and what cannot be exported from Nigeria. It is important that you know what you can export from Nigeria to prevent you from losing your capital when you begin your exportation business.

Since the fall of Naira against the US Dollars, it has been decided that the non-oil export part of the economy is what will bring the nation from the throes of recessions.

The need for Nigerian businesses to look inwards and produce more with local raw materials, human resources, and God’s given minerals.

A nation cannot grow without export!

Therefore, the Nigerian government have over the years been sprinkling manure on the exportation field to grow it further especially the agribusiness.

The reason why we have governing bodies like the Nigerian Export Promotion Council of Nigeria and NEXIM bank is to paint exportation in a good light so as to make it more attractive to corporate bodies and individuals as well.

Therefore, I made a list of 50 hot selling items that Nigerians can export and make profits.
