The Industrial Training Fund ( ITF) has decided to acquire machinery for the mass production of its Mobile phones in Nigeria.
The Fund’s Director of Public Affairs Department, Mrs Suleyol Fred Chagu, quoted the Director-General of the Fund, Mr Joseph Ari, as saying,
Chagu said ITF has initiated the processes for the procurement and installation of a production line specially dedicated for that purpose at the ITF Model Skills Training Centre (MSTC), Abuja.
Ari unveiled the plan when he received the leadership of the two in-house Unions of the Fund , Senior Staff Association of Statutory Corporations and Government Owned Companies (SSACGOC) and the Amalgamated Union Public Corporations, Civil Service Technical and Recreational Employees (AUPCTRE), who paid him a congratulatory visit.
According to him , since the symbolic presentation of the ITF mobile phone to President Muhammadu Buhari, the ITF had been inundated with requests for partnership from corporate entities within the country.
He said he had directed the Director of Technical and Vocational Skills Training Department of the fund who is also the Zonal Director of the ITF MSTC to get all the immediate machines to enable the ITF to set up the production line.
The director-general said the main thing about the product was that it was a home-grown product, and that this gave credence to the fact that “we too can do it in Nigeria”…..
