Gombe stategovernor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, Saturday, said the coast is clear for the industrialisation of the state as the hub of industrial activities in the North-east.
Yahaya, who stated this at the commissioning of the new state-of-the-art factory of Hara Form and Chemical Limited in Gombe, said the state government will continue to support the company and other similar investors in a quest to promote economic activities in the state.
Speaking through the state Commissioner for Trade, Industry and Tourism, Nasiru Mohammed Aliyu, the governor said the commissioning of the multi million naira factory marks an important milestone in the local foam manufacturing industry not just in Gombe state but the entire country.
“It is also of great significance to the promotion of good health and household comfort, as the company is expected to manufacture sufficient products that will meet the demand of the whole north-eastern states and beyond.
“We are indeed very proud to be identified with this laudable project which falls in line with our administration’s agenda for the rapid industrial development of Gombe State,” he said.
He reiterated his administration’s commitment towards the industrialisation of the state which has so far seen the process for the actualisation of the Muhammadu Buhari Industrial Park reaching its peak.
The governor added that the industrialisation process of Gombe state coupled with the availability of uninterrupted power and water along the industrial park site as well as the airways operations will soon turn the state to an industrial hub of the North-east region.
Earlier, the Chief Executive Officer of Hara Foam and Chemicals Ltd, Chief Cosmos Ugwu, commended Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya for providing the enabling environment for investors to pick special interest in the state.
He said the company is projected to employ about 1,000 workers in the state.
