The Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr. Olusegun Aganga has described Governor Obi as the champion of industry in Nigeria. He made this assertion Monday, July 30 at the Nigerian Business and Investment Summit at Dorchester Hotel, London.

Speaking on "Investment Opportunities in the Industrial Sector", Aganga who regrettably described Nigeria as import-dependent Country, said it was unacceptable that Nigeria exports most of her raw materials than finished goods. He said the commitment of the Federal Government was to focus on areas of competitive and comparative advantage and encourage local manufacturers to take advantage of opportunities available to a Nigeria.

The Minister noted that the Federal Government has taken note of barriers to industrial growth such as the problem of electricity that jerk up the cost of production by 30% and is certainly working towards removing such barriers. He said the overall aim of the Federal Government was to kick start Nigerian Industrial revolution.

On the progress of recorded in the area of encouraging local manufacturers and attracting foreign direct investment into the country, Aganga said that even the Federal Government should emulate Gov. Peter Obi who, according to him, had shown uncommon commitment. He said he was awed with the progress he saw when he visited. He gave specific example with Innoson Motor manufacturing at Nnewi, where, according to him, the CEO, Mr. Innocent Chukwuma said Gov. Obi had offered tremendous assistance, including building road to the complex and also patronizing them to the tune of Billions of Naira. zzzzzz ( Continues below..... )
