Ex-MAN chairman tasks FG on more access to foreign exchange in 2022


Dr Wale Adegbite, former Chairman, Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN), Ogun Chapter, has appealed to the federal government to create easier access to foreign exchange for manufacturers in 2022.

Adegbite made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Ota, Ogun State.
He noted that easier access to foreign exchange for manufacturers assist confirmation of letters of credit.
According to him, this development will help to make importation of machines by manufacturers easier in 2022.

Adegbite also called on the federal government to provide preferential interest rates.
The former chairman added that although the government had already done something on interest rates, there was the need to increase the volume of foreign exchange to their members.

“We want the federal government to do more on some of these issues so that the manufacturers could create more job opportunities for the youth and boost the nation’s Gross Domestic Product,” he said.
