Rep. Emeka Idu (LP-Anambra) has urged President Bola Tinubu to invest in the manufacturing sector of the economy.

Idu, who represents Onitsha North/South Federal Constituency of Anambra State said this in Abuja on Thursday while speaking with newsmen following 25 years of unbroken democracy in the country.

He said the manufacturing sector has the capacity to produce different variety of products that could be exported.

He added that the sector would earn Nigeria foreign exchange, revive the nation’s economy and address security challenges.

He appealed to Tinubu to ensure implementation of economic policies that would transform Nigeria to productive nation to end the economic hardship in the country.

On the 25 years of unbroken democracy, Idu said that Nigeria had remained one indivisible entity and witnessed uninterrupted democracy from 1999 till date in spite of challenges.

The lawmaker expressed concern that after 25 years of democratic rule in Nigeria, the country still faced with security and economic challenges.

This, he said had compelled some individuals and private companies to leave the country to other countries that have conducive environment for businesses.

He said that provision of adequate security for Nigeria on long term basis and investment in the production sector were part of the ways that would revive the nation’s economy.

He added that this would engender confidence and trust for investors to start trooping in.

He expressed commitment to enacting laws and supporting policies that would improve the living standard of the people of Onitsha North/South Federal Constituency, South East and Nigeria in general. (NAN)
