Manufacturing, key to job creation - AbdulRazaq
Kwara State Government says manufacturing is an important means of reducing unemployment in Nigeria.
The State Governor, Mallam AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, made the remarks today while receiving the Director-General of Standard Organization of Nigeria, Alhaji Farouk Salim.
Represented by his Deputy, Mr Kayode Alabi, the Governor said manufacturers should receive more support to make international standard products, thereby boosting exports and creating jobs.
Mallam AbdulRazaq stated further that the present administration would encourage small and medium scale businesses in the state and partner SON to uphold standards.
The Director-General, SON, Alhaji Farouk Salim, said he was in the state to launch the organisation's new multi-million naira office complex and inspect some manufacturing companies in the state.
Alhaji Salim said the Standard Organization of Nigeria would sign a memorandum of understanding with the state government to educate small scale industries on standard products. He appealed to the state government to provide supportive infrastructure manufacturers and other businesses in the state.
