Nigeria's MTMA wants ban on export of cotton

The Nigerian Textile Manufacturing Association (MTMA) wants a ban on the export of cotton from the country as it is needed for local manufacturing. MTMA’s acting director general Hamman Kwajaffa said this at a public hearing organized by a parliamentary committee on industry to discuss setting up a cotton, textile and garment (CTG) development council.

Kwajaffa welcomed the move to establish the CTG development council, saying it would create a conducive environment for the economy, according to a Nigerian daily.

Lamenting Nigeria’s over-reliance on imported fabrics, Ruff ‘n’ Tumble founder Adenike Ogunlesi said it is unfortunate that the country is yet to reap the benefits from the US African Growth Opportunities Act (AGOA) due to the reverses suffered by the textile and garment sector over the years.

Secretary general of the National Union of Textile and Garment Workers of Nigeria Issa Aremu said urged the government to grant full autonomy to the proposed council. (DS)
