Vocation: 9 Simple steps to produce emulsion paint for sale in Nigeria.

Now that COVID-19 pandemic has chewed deep into the economy of Nigeria and high cost of living is ubiquitous, especially for those living in Lagos , Abuja , Rivers , Akwa Ibom , among others, 'Skill Acquisition' is one of the solutions.

Sadly, many people have lost their jobs and this can never go well with the victim since the philosophy of Adam Smith (the father of Economics) about man is awesomely true.the philosophical assertion of Adam Smith is "Man is insatiable of wants". Consequently, a question comes up thus "if man is insatiable of 'wants', what of 'needs'?", however, the good news is that man can not survive without 'needs' because they are necessities of Life. So, to cater for both wants and needs at this critical time of the world, one needs to embark on the source of generating income and one of these is 'The production of emulsion paint'.

Apparently, today, I want to show to all my readers through a-thorough-research that I embarked on about the production of paint in a commercial quantity. This will go in two categories, the first is the materials needed and secondly, the Simple Steps required. Here we go👇
