Nigeria: Unilever Restates Commitment to Local Manufacturing

In consonance with its policy of promoting economic growth of developing countries, Unilever, a British-Dutch multinational consumer goods company has reiterated its commitment to actively contribute to enhancing local manufacturing in Nigeria.

The Africa President of Unilever, Bruno Witvoet, stated this during a visit by the leadership team of Unilever Nigeria to the Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai recently.

Witvoet commended the development strategy of the Governor of Kaduna State in ensuring the state was inclusive in economic growth and socio-economic transformation which translates into substantial improvements in the quality of lives of Kaduna citizens.

Similarly, Witvoet signed a Memorandum Of Understanding (MoU) with Mallam El-Rufai on the Kaduna Emergency Nutrition Action Plan (KADENAP), an initiative championed by the governor's wife, Hajia Aisha (Ummi) Garba El-Rufai aimed at tackling Anaemia/Malnutrition in the State. The pact is also in furtherance of Unilever's sustainability strategy, Unilever Sustainable Living Plan (USLP).

In his remarks, Governor El-Rufai commended the company for their efforts in the sustainable development of Kaduna State.

He reassured the team of the government's assistance whenever there is an expansion plan within and outside the state.
