The Enyimba Automated Shoe Factory has successfully produced and delivered 3,000 pairs of solid work boots to the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC).

Recall that prior to this time, the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) like many other Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) purchased most of their working materials from factories abroad.

However, with the desire for foreign products by most Nigerians on the rise, it is only well-founded that the Abia State government in her quest to encourage and support production of quality homegrown products has put in place such a huge investment in the production of first-rate shoes for both Cooperate and industrial use which would in turn translate to a growth in the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) and increase Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the State and country’s economy.

The Managing Director, Nigerian Railway Corporation, Mr. Fidet Okhiria while receiving the solid work boots from the Executive Director Marketing, Adaku Oseiza, expressed excitement and satisfaction at the impressive and unique nature of the work boots. He further applauded the Executive Governor of Abia State, Okezie Victor Ikpeazu PhD. for his constant zeal to promote made in Nigeria as well as made in Aba products. He also assured us of continuous patronage and encouraged Nigerians to learn how to patronise made in Nigeria goods.

“This is from Abia State”, he said.
