THE Transition Chairman, Idemili South Local Government Area (ISLGA), Mrs Amaka Obi and the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) aspirant for House of Assembly, Idemili South Constituency, Ebuka Igwe have lauded Ngo quarter women, Nnobi, for floating a nylon factory.
Commending the women during the commissioning/unveiling of the nylon factory at Ngo – Nnobi, Mrs Obi noted that the project was in line with Governor Chukwuma Soludo’s vision to make Anambra State the industrial hub of Africa.
“Ngo-Nnobi women have greatly established this nylon factory. private public partnership in establishing industries that will employ our teeming unemployed youths and women is part of the solution Prof. Soludo’s administration advocates.
“At least, this will bring food to the table of some employees working here. Other women groups and individuals should emulate such because the government cannot do it all alone. Government will do as much as they can and then provide an enabling environment.
“The Soludo government loves to support women. That is why I urge people to vote for APGA candidates during the 2023 election. I have told them to submit names of their children seeking employment , especially the females, I am willing to assist them.
Mrs Obi further tasked them to advise their youths against crimes, kidnapping, and joining unknown gunmen, cultism which is bedeviling the society, saying that no meaningful development can be assured in the midst of insecurity.
Moreso, Igwe (Ugosinachi Idemili), a legal luminary, after praising the women of Ngo quarter for the nylon factory, stressed on the importance of skill acquisition and youth empowerment to engage the unemployed as a panacea to crime and insecurity.
“I came to solicit for their votes during the 2023 elections just to be told we shall accompany them to commission their nylon factory today. I will give priority to youth empowerment if voted into the House of Assembly to represent Idemili South”, said Igwe.
However, the Chairperson, Inyom Ngo Quarters, Nnobi, Mrs Ngozi Ezeimo, an industrialist, said that the aim of floating the factory was for women empowerment and to reduce unemployment among Ngo Nnobi women.
“It is not good to remain just a housewife without any means of income to support your family or provide for one’s personal needs. We opened the Inyom Ngo Nylon Factory to alleviate poverty among our women.
“Although, it is quite unfortunate that some girls prefer to run after drug addicts and peddlers for easy money instead of learning a skill or working to earn a living. I have a table water factory; oftentimes, some do not stay up to six and run away.
“Every woman should embrace a skill or be educated and gainfully employed. There is dignity in labour. A woman of integrity and virtue should not depend on a man for everything”, said Mrs. Ezeimo
She further thanked her husband, Chief Eddy Ezeimo, a philanthropist, Obi Okpala, Inyom Ngo executives which include Mrs Nneka Iloduba (Treasurer), Amaechi Akudigwe(Assistant Secretary), Ngozi Etuka(Financial Secretary) and others for ensuring success of the project.
