Leather Industry Key in Fight Against Poverty Says Nigerian Minister

5 November 2018

Nigerian minister of science and technology has said newly approved leather policies will create jobs and give the country the tools needed to fight rising poverty levels.

Pointing out that in 2013 alone the industry made over £700 million for the government, the minister stated that “If we harness the leather we have in Nigeria and we process our hides and skins, we will be creating a lot of jobs and wealth because of the small-scale enterprises that will spring up. You will now have new business springing up.”
