Fayemi urges O’dua on mgt of brick factory
•Factory to absorb 1,000 workers
Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi has urged the management of O’dua Investment Company to ensure that the resuscitated Ire Burnt Bricks Factory in Ire-Ekiti is run as a business concern rather than as a charity organisation.
The governor, who spoke in Ado- Ekiti while receiving the new Group Managing Director of the company, Mr. Raji Adewale, said the factory should not be seen as a charity organisation that will be making free donation of blocks to government agencies.
He recalled that the burnt brick factory was moribund for more than 20 years until the Fayemi-led government came on board and revived it last year.
Governor Fayemi assured that his administration is committed to leaving behind a functional profitable business that will add value to the people, even as the factory has commenced recruitment of about 1,000 direct workers.
While congratulating the new GMD on his appointment, Fayemi said the new manager would be placed on better footing in the interest of the people of the owner states.
