Ilorin, Sept. 11, 2023: The Basic Metal, Iron and Steel Products Manufacturers of Nigeria has commended President Bola Tinubu for his performance towards the nation’s economic growth at the just concluded Nigeria-India economic roundtable meeting in India.
This is contained in a statement from the Chairman of the group, Dr Kamoru Yusuf, on Monday in Ilorin.
The statement said the group, which was an arm of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN), also commended the president for attracting 14 billion dollars investment to boost the country’s economy.
According to the statement, the feats recorded by the Tinubu-led administration within 100 days of its inauguration will no doubt accelerate economic recovery and business growth in the steel sector.
“President Tinubu has by all standards demonstrated his love and readiness to support industrialists.
”We, in the Iron and Steel sector of MAN are ready to support his administration with data, workable templates and roadmap that will support him in his endeavour to succeed in his mandates to Nigerian citizens.
“As major stakeholders in Nigeria’s project, we received this news with huge excitement and sense of fulfillment.
”We hope that the breakthrough will further change the game of operations as ‘Risk Takers’ in the nation’s business environment.
”We pledge our unalloyed support to your administration towards ensuring and providing enabling atmosphere for industrialists to continue to thrive,” the statement read in part.
It emphasised that Tinubu’s exceptional efforts in attracting such a substantial investment for Nigeria’s steel sector deserved standing ovation and applause.
The group also promised to continue to support the Minister for Steel Development, Alhaji Shuaibu Audu, in the discharge of his duties at all times.
