Anambra State Governor, Prof Charles Chukwuma Soludo CFR on Thursday, October 26, 2023 received in courtesy visit the Honourable Minister of State for Steel Development, Uba Maigari Ahmadu at the Governor’s Lodge Amawbia, Awka Anambra State.

The Honourable Minister, Hon. Uba is on a 2-day official tour of the National Metallurgical Training Institute (NMTI) in Onitsha which is under the purview of his office.

The Minister during his speech held that it is difficult to discuss Nigeria industrialization without putting Anambra State into consideration as the state prides as one of the highest industrial cluster in Nigeria. He assured that the President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu led federal government is intentional about revamping the nation’s steel sector to enhance industrial revolution, create jobs and enable economic development.

He added that overhauling the National Metallurgical Training Institute Onitsha is part of the agenda of president Tinubu administration in his move to spearhead a turning point in Nigeria industrial revolution.
