Turkish manufacturers urged to build factories in Nigeria

Worried by the high cost of building materials in the country, a former Minister of Power, Murtala Aliyu, has urged Turkish manufacturers to set up their factories in Nigeria to reduce prices.
Aliyu, a former president of the Nigerian Institute of Qunatity Surveyors, made this call during the Machinery, Metal and Steel Exhibition tagged “Do Win Nigeria” organised by TG Expo International in Lagos.
He said the suggestion, if realised, would reduce cost of building, improve the country’s foreign exchange earnings and lead to economic growth.

Meanwhile, lack of capacity building among Nigerians, inadequate incentives and security problem have been listed as some of the issues that need to be tackled by the Federal Government to facilitate setting up of plant and equipment factories in Nigeria.
These were also highlighted by over 40 manufacturers of plants and equipment for steel door, metal, window, glass and aluminium products from Turkey who were Lagos last weekend for trade and business development.
Sales Manager, Birim Makina, Murat Akkus, said that if the environment was conducive with guaranteed market for production, his company was ready to establish factory in Nigeria.
However, he blamed lack of human capacity building and undeveloped Nigerian market as major bottleneck.

According to him, the company will need trained personnel to handle and manage some of the machinery for production, adding this is still lacking in the country.
Some of the Turkish investors exhibited machinery and equipment such as rolling mill, cranes, forklift, trucks, mechanical and hydraulic machines, metal scrap processing and handling equipment, pipes and tubes, plates, belts, bars, coiled, furnace and heat treatment technology.
