Chinese firm lauds Nigeria’s approval for factories in states

By Moses Uwagbale

A Chinese Company, Erojim Investments Ltd. has lauded the decision of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) for allowing the company to establish garment and leather factories in Kano and Abia States.

The company in a statement in Abuja on Thursday commended the Nigerian government for supporting the establishment of garment and leather factories in some parts of the country.

Erojim Investments in partnership with Poly Technologies Ltd. is a foremost footwear and garment manufacturer in China.

The company said that the FEC approved the manufacture of all military and paramilitary garment and footwear needs of the country from the company.

The company ascribed the success of the project to the doggedness of both the Comptroller of the Nigeria Correctional Services, Mr Ja’afaru Ahmed and the Mr Rauf Aregbesola, the Minister of Interior.

“President Buhari is happy that this is happening during his tenure because apart from making garments and footwear available for our military and paramilitary services, it will also create jobs.

“It will retain capital flights and prevent the country from wasting foreign exchange on these items,’’ it said.
