The Federal Government has launched a modern garment factory to produce uniforms for the armed forces and other security agencies in the country.

This was made known by the Ministry of Interior, Mohammed Manga, in a statement on Sunday, October 27, 2019.

Manga said the launching of the garment factory, which was tagged, DICON-SUR Corporate Wears Nigeria Limited, was held at the Defence Industries Corporation of Nigeria (DICON) at Kakuri, Kaduna.

Manga quoted President Muhammadu Buhari speaking at the occasion as saying that the move was to ensure standardisation and guard against the misuse of military and security uniforms by impostors and criminals in Nigeria.

The President, who was represented by the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, said the garment factory was being launched in recognition of the dire need of Nigeria for a modern garment factory to produce befitting uniforms for the Armed Forces and other security agencies.

The president further said that part of the value chain of the industry is the creation of additional 1,000 jobs when the factory is fully operational in 2021.

He opined that since the basic raw material for the factory was clothing, the project would also invigorate the textile industry in the catchment cotton-growing states like Kaduna, Bauchi, Gombe, Katsina among others.

Buhari expressed optimism that the ripple effect would catalyse industrial development and job creation in the area.

Buhari said that the factory being launched was a partnership between DICON and Sur Corporate Wear of Turkey.

In other news, the Federal Government had deported seven nationals of Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) back to their country.

The deportees, who allegedly attempted to undermine national security, were also banned from returning to Nigeria for life.
