Akin Oyediran, the newly-elected chairman of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN), Cross River/Akwa Ibom states branch has disclosed that his advocacy with the governments of both states will tackle challenges in the manufacturing sector under his jurisdiction.
He stated this in an interview with Punch, saying it was advocacy that led to the ban on the importation of substandard syringes into the country by the senate last year.
“The Medical Manufacturers Association was able to get the Senate to ban syringes last year, and get the ministry of health to ensure that Nigerian-made syringes were used in hospitals across Nigeria.
“So, if we can take that kind of advocacy work from what the Medical Manufacturers Association has done, and help the manufacturing industries in this region, it will be good for us.
"The outgoing chairman has done very well in bringing up the association from comatose, my mandate is to go out there and do more advocacy work with the governments to help the manufacturing industries in terms of foreign exchange, tax control, government policies, and road construction.”
