Obiano to FG - Extend Local Content to Construction Industry

By Chika Okeke

The Governor of Anambra State, Dr Willie Obiano has asked the Federal Government to extend the Local Content Law to other sectors of the economy, especially the construction industry, adding that the law only addressed grumblings in the oil & gas sectors.

This, he said, was necessary as no nation would experience growth without prioritizing the local engineering manpower, adding that a vibrant construction industry dominated by indigenous engineers is vital for accelerated growth of the country.
