Governor Okezie Ikpeazu meets Aba shoe makers

Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, of Abia state says the coming of Huajian Shoe Factory to Aba will not affect Aba shoe makers negatively.

The Governor gave the assurance on Tuesday, while addressing the leadership of Omenka shoemakers at Aba.

"As those in the business, I must brief you and also assure you that his coming will not in anyway affect your business negatively. As your brother and your governor, it is my duty to protect your interest and that I must do. But let me also challenge you to take advantage of his coming to improve and upgrade your processes and systems in the industry,” He said.

"This government will do everything to protect your business interest and also do everything to thwart any plan to frustrate foreign investment into the state," He added.

Ikpeazu further said 100 shoemakers from Aba will be going to China any moment for further training in modern ways of shoemaking that will impact positively on their output and quality.

Responding, Chairman of the Omenka Shoemakers Aba, Mr. Okechukwu Williams, thanked the Governor for finding time to brief them, and also for dousing their fears over the coming of the Chinese investors, which they had thought will take away their businesses.

He, on behalf of members, thanked the governor for promoting their products vigorously in an unprecedented way since they started producing shoes , and also promised to take advantage of the coming of the Chinese investors to improve on their business processes and systems with a view to competing favorably.

They pleaded with the Governor to ensure that only members of the Omenka shoemakers in Aba will make the list of 100 persons that will go to China for further training.
