Techno Oil Boss tasks agencies on importation of fake, sub-standard cylinders The Chief Executive Officer, Techno Oil Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinder manufacturing plant, Mrs. Nkechi Obi has urged the Federal Government and relevant agencies to put measures in place to stop importation of fake and sub-standard cylinders.
Speaking in Lagos on Tuesday, 2th October, 2019 on ‘LPG adoption and the challenges facing the LPG sector’, Obi said it was regrettable that fake cylinders had continued to pour into Nigeria, causing harm to the economy and posing dangers to users of the fake products. She also used the opportunity to call for more protection for indigenous manufacturing companies.
Obi said: “Government should introduce measures to protect local companies so that the companies can generate jobs for the teeming population.”
“The private sector should be positioned to be the engine room of economic development of our country,” she said.
“Therefore, the government is expected to introduce policies that will help to sustain the sector to generate jobs for people willing and able to work,’’ Obi added.
