Governor Uzodinma said he is aware of the challenges facing them, assuring that his administration is keen on the revival of industries in the State.

 

The Governor said: “I am not unaware of your challenges. We are committed to ensuring that our State is industrialised and employment created for our youths.”

 

The Governor promised that he will visit the industrial layout along Onitsha Road after which a Joint Technical Committee will be set up to come up with a blue-print on how  to resuscitate the industrial layout.

 

While warning that Government will not hesitate to revoke Certificates of Occupancy (CfOs) issued to unserious people, Governor Uzodinma advised the manufacturers to attract investors into the state for optimal development.

 

Speaking earlier, President of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria, Engr. Chuma Eluma had thanked Governor Uzodimma for thinking outside the box in his quest to make the State a manufacturing hub in the South East.

 

Eluma disclosed that the high cost of production in the State is associated with the deplorable state of the roads at the industrial layout, inadequate power supply and constant extortion from security personnel.

 

He called for the intervention of the State Government to arrest some of these problems and promised that they will do their best to improve the manufacturing sector in the state for the betterment of Imo people, a statement by Oguwike Nwachuku, the Chief Press Secretary & Media Adviser to the Governor has revealed.
