Whatsapp News

ADO-EKITI – Gov. Kayode Fayemi of  Ekiti  has charged the management of O’dua Investment Company to operate the newly resuscitated Ire burnt bricks factory  as a business venture  rather than a charity organisation.

Fayemi gave the charge  on Tuesday while receiving the new Group Managing Director(GMD)  of the company, Mr Raji Adewale, in his office in Ado- Ekiti.

He said the factory should not be seen as a charity organisation that would  be donating free bricks  to government agencies.

The factory had  been moribund for  20 years until  the Fayemi administration  revived it in 2013.

Fayemi said that his administration was committed to leaving behind a  profitable business outfit that would add value to the economy of the state.[eap_ad_2] 

He said that the management of the factory had  commenced recruitment of about 1,000 direct workers.

While congratulating the new GMD on his appointment, Fayemi  urged him to ensure that the factory was in good standing for the benefit of  the owner states.

He said that O’dua Investment Company  was not a political programme, but a business and development initiative driven by professionalism.

The new GMD said that the brick factory would begin full production on Sept.  29 and would be inaugurated  in October.

He said that the factory would be properly managed so that it could  develop and take over the burnt bricks market in the country. (NAN)[eap_ad_3]
