Former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo recently forayed into the garment business by setting up a company, Heritage Apparel, with its factory in Abeokuta in Ogun state. The factory is located in the premises of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library. Obasanjo is known for his interest in the agricultural sector and owns the Ota Farm in the state.

He has started the garment enterprise in collaboration with young Nigerian woman entrepreneur Abisade Adenubi based in the United Kingdom who had been producing apparel in Europe and Asia, according to Nigerian media reports.

She added that the company looks to raise awareness regarding local fabric (Adire) in Abeokuta. She added that plans are under way to begin mass production of garments and apparels, including uniforms for security operatives, public sector officials and schools.
