Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari’s ad­min­is­tra­tion of­fers the last chance for Nige­ria’s in­dus­tri­al­iza­tion and de­vel­op­ment and he must act to re­vive the econ­omy, the Gen­eral Sec­re­tary, Na­tional Union of Tex­tiles, Gar­ment and Tai­lor­ing Work­ers Of Nige­ria (NUTGTWN), Com­rade Issa Aremu, said yes­ter­day.

Aremu who spoke at the 3RD In­ter­na­tional Con­fer­ence and award of Fel­low­ship of As­so­ci­a­tion of Tex­tiles Tech­nol­o­gists of Nige­ria in Kaduna yes­ter­day said the in­com­ing min­is­ters must help to re­al­ize Buhari’s three-point agenda namely; anti-cor­rup­tion, se­cu­rity and econ­omy.

“So far, he has done well halt­ing crim­i­nal theft of the com­mon­wealth through cor­rup­tion. The EFCC and Code of Con­duct Bureau in par­tic­u­lar have been ac­tive en­forc­ing ac­count­abil­ity.

Pres­i­dent Buhari in the next few months will be judged on ac­count of how new in­dus­tries are es­tab­lished in the coun­try and how they pro­tect the ex­ist­ing ones from to­tal col­lapse,” he said.
