The Federal Governments decision to promote the sale of locally made textiles is in line with the demands to boost production and capacity in the textile companies. The National Union of Textile Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria (NUTGTWN) on Tuesday commended.
Recently, the Federal Government had directed all public workers to wear locally made fabrics (Ankara) to work twice a week. NUTGTWN believe that if workers patronise more of the local fabrics, it will revive the industries.
Factories will be able to pay wages and more workers will be employed.
According to Mr Issa Aremu, the General Secretary of the union, workers in the private sector should also be directed to wear local textiles throughout the week. The decision would help to diversify the economy as well as improve tax for the country.
Aremu also called on the government to boost energy supply to sustain local production at affordable price. Further to ensure only locally made textiles were sold in the country, the government has been called on to sustain the fight against smuggling.
