Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State
Security agencies in Nigeria have been asked to patronise the Enyimba Automated Shoe factory. Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, made the call while speaking at the Abia Social Media Converge, saying that Made-in-Aba shoes could compete favourably with any other brand globally.
According to him, it has the sufficient capacity to produce boots in commercial quantity and world-class quality.
He further stated that the Enyimba Automated Shoe factory just concluded the supply of industrial shoes to the Nigerian Railway Corporation and had become the official supplier of shoes to the Nigerian Correctional Services.
He expressed joy that his campaigns for the Made in Aba products and its standardisation had paid off as artisans in Aba are now proudly inscribing Made-in-Aba on their products as a brand.
Ikpeazu, who commended President Muhammadu Buhari for the Executive Order on compulsory patronage of locally made goods, added that such has started yielding results for the economic prosperity of Nigeria.
