From Dan Maduagwu ,
The Enyimba Automated Shoe Factory has successfully produced and delivered 3,000 pairs of solid work boots to the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC).
This development was made known by the Public Relations Officer (PRO)/Senior Special Assistant to Governor Okezie Ikpeazu on Enyimba Automated Shoe Factory, Mr. Ikenna Charles George-Esiaba in a statement.
Esiaba recalled that prior to this time, the NRC like many other Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) had purchased most of their working materials from factories abroad.
However, with the desire for foreign products by most Nigerians on the rise, according to the PRO, it is only apt that the Abia State government in its quest to encourage and support production of quality homegrown products, has put in place such a huge investment in the production of first-rate shoes for both corporate and industrial use which would in turn translate to a growth in the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) and increase Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the State and country’s economy.
The Managing Director, Nigerian Railway Corporation, Mr. Fidet Okhiria while receiving the solid work boots from the Executive Director Marketing, Adaku Oseiza, expressed excitement and satisfaction at the impressive and unique nature of the work boots. She further applauded the Executive Governor of Abia State, Okezie Victor Ikpeazu PhD. for his constant zeal to promote made in Nigeria as well as made in Aba products.
He also assured us of continuous patronage and encouraged Nigerians to learn how to patronize made in Nigeria goods.
Esiaba further assured that the Enyimba Automated Shoes Factory was poised to solve all the leather needs of Nigerians while many corporate and private individuals have also lined up to patronize the factory which would in turn create job opportunity.
