At the recently finished Nigeria-India economic roundtable meeting in India, the Basic Metal, Iron and Steel Products Manufacturers of Nigeria praised President Bola Tinubu for his contribution to the nation’s economic growth.
This is according to a statement issued by the group’s Chairman, Dr Kamoru Yusuf, on Monday in Ilorin.
The organization, which was an affiliate of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN), also praised the president for securing 14 billion dollars in investment to enhance the country’s economy, according to the statement.
According to the statement, the accomplishments accomplished by the Tinubu-led administration in the first 100 days would undoubtedly accelerate economic recovery and corporate 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 a 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 an 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.
