The Director General of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN), Segun Ajayi-Kadir has called on incentives for the manufacturing sector in Nigeria as governments all over the world incentivise manufacturing.
He insisted the manufacturing sector has the greatest opportunities to create jobs, the greatest opportunity to revive the economy and set the path to development.
The MAN DG on Monday, said President Bola Tinubu has said the right things so far but insisted that it is now time for him to put actions to his words especially in the manufacturing sector.
“The president so far has always said the right things, now is time for him to put actions to the words. We have had this snail on our neck since independence, but in more recent times, we have seen a situation where government has only paid lip service to the plight of the manufacturing sector.”
According to Ajayi-Kadir, there is no nation on earth that is considered wealthy or developed or prosperous that does not have a vibrant manufacturing sector.
Ajayi-Kadi described Tinubu’s preference to support domestic manufacturing as against importation as the best strategy any government can have, and praised the president for his proposed unified exchange rate which he said MAN has always advocated.Follow us on social media
