Garment sector needs to have specific road map

The Nigerian garment industry can generate more than 6,00,000 jobs if it was harnessed properly, estimated Mr. Chief Lai Olumegbon the Managing Director of Lai Clothiers, who therefore, requested the Federal Government to revive the industry by initiating a policy to encourage private-public partnership (PPP) in this sector.

As the garment industry is capable of generating employment for the teeming youths, Mr. Olumegbon said that the sector should be the focus of President Musa Yardua's Seven-Point Agenda.

The dearth of skilled manufacturers in the country is one of the reasons for the entry of second-hand and substandard wears into the country, he said. As the government doesn't have any roadmap for the garment sector, it had not been possible for him to establish a standard training institute in the country, he added.

The Nigerian garment sector can compete with the garment sectors in the other parts of the world as well as can export its products widely, if the government creates a road map for the sector.

Due to the poor modalities and the quality standards of goods meant for export, the garment manufacturers are finding it difficult to export their wears through AGOA, he added.
