cotton farmAs part of efforts aimed at reviving cotton manufacturing within the nation, the Cotton Ginners Association of Nigeria has appealed to the Federal Government to ban importation of cotton into the country.
President of the association, Salman Abdullahi, stated this in a press release that Nigeria’s native trade would suffer if international traders were permitted to import cotton into the country.
“It has come to our information that there are some international organisations with the proposal to put money into Nigeria within the Textile and Garment trade with a provison that they must be allowed to carry into the nation cotton from their home nations to feed the proposed industries.”
“We hereby reject this proposal in its entirety due to' the hazard it poses to cotton manufacturing in Nigeria and the devastating impression it will have on over two million Nigerian cotton farmers and their dependants,” he stated.
Abdullahi further stated that the acceptance of the proposal would lead to the downfall of over 52 existing cotton ginneries, loss of many textile companies, and more importantly, the total eradication of Cotton manufacturing in Nigeria.
The president however, noted that the association was in support of real funding within the sector, as it would create employment opportunities for youths and help foster peace within the nation
He urged the Federal Government to work with stakeholders and potential investors to revive cotton manufacturing within the country.
