Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has commended the activities of manufacturers in various parts of Abuja.

Accompanied by the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Niyi Adebayo, among other officials, the Vice President said the Federal Government will continue to give priority attention to MSMEs especially those creating jobs for Nigerians.

While inspecting a clothing manufacturing store in Lugbe area of the nation’s capital, the Vice President said It is very impressive that Abuja houses entrepreneurs who have helped in employing some of Nigeria’s unemployed.

“It is very impressive that somewhere in Abuja, you can have so much manufacturing going on, so many people employed and so much innovation and creativity on display”

To him, “this is our MSME Week, we are looking at star MSMEs here and there, looking at what they are doing and in what ways we can support them, so we are looking forward to working with them.”

At the Lugbe stop, the VP told reporters “we are here at the DLK manufacturing company. They manufacture, as you have seen, boots, shoes, special uniforms for the NYSC, for the Armed Forces, and they also make bags and masks. Even face masks.

“This is quite an impressive facility because first, there is a wide range of products that are manufactured right here, and secondly, there is a good number of young men and women that are employed.

“Thirdly, and importantly, the equipment is state-of-the-art. We have looked around and we have seen that you can do practically anything here. You can do all of the manufacture of boots for the Armed Forces, and they already have something they are doing for the Armed Forces, the Customs Service, and the NYSC.”

He expressed satisfaction with the operations of both MSMEs and said what he had observed was quite impressive.
