President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday in Abuja stated that new investment commitments coming into Nigeria’s textile sector, of which Aba is a major beneficiary, would be actualized within the shortest possible time.

He gave the assurance when he received traditional rulers from Abia State led by His Majesty, Isaac Ikonne, Enyi 1 of Aba whilst assuring the monarchs that the issue of unstable electricity and other infrastructure in Ariaria market would soon be a thing of the past.

Reaffirming his administration’s commitment to rapidly industrialize the country through projects that promote import substitution, the President said the investments in the textile industry would create thousands of jobs for youths in Aba.

On Ariaria market, the President recounted that during his visit to Aba in 2015 as presidential candidate, he was warmly received and walked through parts of the market where he observed the lack of electricity and other basic infrastructure for its over 40,000 shops.

On security, he reiterated that his government would continue to do its best to maintain the sovereign integrity of Nigeria while protecting the livelihoods of its hardworking and honest citizens.

He also underscored the need for elder statesmen, leaders, parents and patriots to continue to guide youths on the path of peace and prosperity while eschewing hateful and divisionary rhetoric.
