Nnewi North Council boss makes case for industrialists

www.odogwublog.com reports that the Transition Committee chairman of Nnewi North local government area of Anambra state, Prince Chukwudi Orizu has called on the federal government to make enabling environment  available to the teeming manufacturers and industrialists in Nnewi to actualize their potentials.

Prince Orizu made this call while playing host to members of Course 39, Study group 4 of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, Kuru-Jos, who were in the industrial town to get a first hand information about the industrial prowess of Nnewi.

The council boss noted that there are many ingenious manufacturing companies in Nnewi which are not only producing for local consumption but also for international market.

He said many Nigerians in the process have made Nnewi their place of abode because they get their source of livelihood from working in some of the industries which according to him has led to the development of a very big market.

Prince Orizu however pointed out that things are assuming a negative trend as many manufacturers and industrialists are now closing shops because factors of production like constant electricity supply and regular supply of raw materials are no longer available to them.

The Nnewi North TC chairman said that the federal government will do well to address the issues militating against production so that jobs can readily be available to teeming job seekers in the country.

In his remark, the leader of the delegation, Air Vice Marshal Humphrey Okpala noted that the institute was established in 1979 and has only trained about 2000 people.

He pointed out that the focus of the study team is agriculture and that Anambra state was considered because of the exploits of the governor of the state, Chief Willie Obiano in agriculture noting that five other groups are in different part of the country.

The council boss later led the study group to the palace of the paramount ruler of Nnewi kingdom, Igwe Dr KON Orizu 111 and selected industries in the town.
