Photos - Oluwo tasked FG to Ban Foreign Jeans and Promote Local Fabrics, branded as Telu Jeans


The Paramount Ruler of Iwoland, HIM Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, has tasked the federal government to consider an outright ban of foreign jeans to promote local fabrics to boost Nigeria's economy.

As a custodian of culture, Oluwo said there must be a separation between culture and religion most especially the Yorubas.

Oba Akanbi explained he has earlier discussed a partnership deal with the Bank of Industry (BOI) but not yielding as expected. He said the federal governments should be involved to embrace the idea and bring up the production of various dresses such as suits, jeans, and Agbada with local Ofi.

Oba Akanbi explained that the youths and teenagers were not forced to start wearing foreign cloth except the fabric was seen to suit their needs.

The monarch, who had sewn the fabrics into different trendy styles for males and females, said he would partner with celebrities, especially the Nigerian Government to sew new styles to gain acceptability among youths.

He said using this fabric to make clothes of Western dresses which our kids love will boost Nigeria's Economy. And will create many job opportunities.

He said I have branded the Aso Ofi as Telu Jeans and Telu Jeans is normal trousers, shorts, and a jacket made of Aso Ofi.

"Our traditional clothes and accessories such as Ofi and beads are a demonstration of rich culture and luxuries of wealth. So enticing and admiring but because a people affiliated wearing Ofi and using some cultural accessories as paganism, our children begin to run away from it"

"You only see a Yoruba child wearing Ofi and using beads at either wedding or naming ceremony.

"I will lead the struggle to clean our culture and promote cultural accessories. I will provide technical requirements to assist the government in the actualization of the dream"

“Aso Ofi will also be used to sew suits in all office, school, and religious wear. This will increase the demand for this local fabric and create jobs for our people who are weavers. It will also promote our culture and we will spend less money on the importation of foreign clothes.

“It is about using our fabrics to make clothes of the western world which our kids like. You must think like the children and the youths if you want to influence them in any way".
