The governor said that when they set up that factory, the goal was not just in order to make jobs but, indeed, to guarantee that a lot of young men and women who, unfortunately, have been challenged by different circumstances of their lives and have had less opportunities.
Ben Ayade added that he was very excited to be there seeing a lot of people with their great energy – and it is very important for their factory. Don’t forget, the factory has the ability to create more than 3,000 jobs. Truly, if a person wants to call himself a leader, he should focus on the vulnerable and weak people today. The governor guarantees people high salaries, food and also proper transportation. Ayade urged the new workers, which he labeled ‘the great engineers of fashion’, to use the possibility to express their innate potentials and be the pride of the state.
He added, ‘We would like to show to the whole world that Nigerians have skills, real great fashion engineers. I name all of you engineers as you will provide the skills and possibilities, which we have not seen before’.
Also the President and Founder of Africa Young Entrepreneurs, whose name is Oluwa-Summy Francis, said Ayade, justified certain belief that young people can excel in leadership positions.
