The leather industry in Nigeria has enormous potential. It has evolved over the years and contributed immensely to the Nigerian economy despite little to no contribution from the government.
Data from the Nigerian Economic Summit Group (NESG) Policy Brief for October 2017 shows that the leather industry makes up about 24% of the agricultural sector’s contribution to Nigeria’s GDP; it is also one of the more significant employers of labour in the country, with over 750,000 workers in the leather processing sector and about 500,000 workers in the finished leather goods sector.
