The Manufacturers Association of Nigeria implores the newly inaugurated ministers to swing into action in their various ministries towards speedy economic recovery of the country.
Chairman of the Association of Iron and Steel Fabricated Metal Products, an arm of MAN, Kamoru Yusuf, stated this in a statement issued in Abuja.
He called on the ministers of Mines and Steel Development, Olamilekan Adegbite, and his counterpart in the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, Adeniyi Adebayo, to come up with policies and programmes that would revive the entire manufacturing sector.
He said that MAN was looking forward to a realistic policy framework from the ministers in line with the economic diversification plan of the government.
He said, “Mines and Steels remained one of the bedrocks of the Nigeria economy which needs serious attention due to the numerous challenges posing threats to the growth and development of steel industries in the country.
“As one of the major players in the nation’s economy, we deem it fit to be given adequate attention in the interest of nation-building and in particular, economic revival.
“We urge the duo of Olamilekan Adegbite and Adeniyi Adebayo, to study the Industrial Roadmap Revolution for the sector among others.
“It is our hope that they will bring to bear, their rich experiences towards achieving the goals of the sector,” he said.
He, however, assured the ministers of MAN’s readiness to support them in their tasks towards nation-building process stressing that adequate consultation should be adopted in a bid to tackling the prevailing problems facing the sectors.
