Do you know that the global prosthetic limb industry will be worth $13.12bn by 2028?
 The increasing number of populations along with rising incidences of diabetes among children and the geriatric population are some of the growth drivers
 According to the World Health Organisation, between 20m and 50m people worldwide suffer non-fatal road injuries, which causes a disability in their bodies
 Every year, vascular diseases, induced by diabetes or peripheral artery diseases, cancer, or traumatic injuries are the cause of approximately 185,000 amputations are performed in the US alone
 Do we have any statistics regarding the number of Nigerians who need prosthetic limbs annually?
 Even if we have no local figures, there are global statistics available and nothing stops us making Nigeria the prosthetic limb manufacturing capital of the world

 He can then offer them a five year tax holiday
 Just imagine the number of bandits and kidnappers we would take off the streets if we opens a factory like this in say Zamfara, Katsina, Kaduna, Borno or Yobe states. I am sure any state governor would get counterpart development funding for the project based on this
