Textile Union urges state to revive Asaba Textile Mill
Apr '12
The Delta state government has been called upon by the National Union of Textile, Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria (NUTGTWN) to revive the Asaba Textile Mill.

The mill being Nigeria's third largest textile producing mill, employed more than 5,000 employees at a point in time.

Speaking at the Union's 10th National Delegates Conference, NDC, in Asaba, Delta State, General Secretary of NUTGTWN, Issa Aremu said the state government's investment in power is expected to aid revival of the mill, thereby ensuring generation of several employment opportunities for the youth.

In response to the NUTGTWN's call, Delta State Deputy Governor, Prof. Amos Otuama said that the state government is paying due attention to revival of Asaba Textile Mill, however, there are some financial as well as legal constraints that are impeding the way.

Further, hailing the Federal Government for grant of the loan that induced revival of several textile mills including Kaduna state based the United Nigeria Textile Plc., Mr. Aremu said that Suntex Textiles Ltd. is also trying to revive its plant.
