Aremu offers path for industrialisation, economical revival
Addressing Nigeria’s energy challenge headlong remains pivotal to the industrrilisation of the nation, the Secretary General of Nigerian Textiles Workers Union, Issa Aremu, has stressed.
Aremu, who is also Chairman of the IndustriALL Global Union Sub Saharan Africa, held that it was after such consideration that the country should be expecting purposeful domestic and foreign investments.
He therefore, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to rise up to the occasion just as he lauded ongoing efforts at repositioning the nation’s economy.
In a statement yesterday in Kaduna, Aremu also urged the Federal Government to pay more attention to fixing infrastructure as a basis for the promotion of economic growth and development.
“Sadly, Nigeria has become a dumping ground for mostly smuggled fabrics and even second-hand banned unhealthy clothes. We must overcome infrastructural inadequacy, electricity supply, smuggling, low patronage, counterfeiting and faking, raw materials among others.“All these problems call for strong government interventions,” he said.
According to Aremu, in addressing the comatose textile industry and other manufacturing concerns, “President Buhari must convene a stakeholders’ meeting on textile with a view to implementing the Nigeria industrial Revolution Plan (NIRP) and the National Cotton Textile and Garment policy”, he asserted.
