The National Union of Textiles, Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria (NUTGTWN) recently urged the government to create a textiles ministry to address the industry’s woes and revive the sector. Textiles workers also said they would demand from the government a directive for strong patronage for fabrics manufactured by domestic companies this year.

In a New Year message, union national president John Adaji and secretary Issa Aremu said the creation of the ministry should be taken up as a priority.

“The objective of the proposed ministry would be to regularly upgrade the textile value chains, improve labour productivity, maximise value addition and formulate strategies and programme to enable the textile sector meet the challenges to attain global competitiveness,” Nigerian media reports quoted the message as saying.
