The Managing Director of the Aluminium company, Muhammed Muhammed, told newsmen in Potiskum on Tuesday  that Governor Mai Mala Buni had approved N94 million for the resuscitation of the company.

“The Yobe governor, Mai Mala Buni, has approved the sum of N94 million for the resuscitation of this company.

“Likewise, our first production machine which is the ‘Steptile Machine’ is already here.

“We are waiting for the second machine which is the ‘Netcopo Machine’ which we expect to arrive immediately after the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Before the resuscitation, the production capacity was mainly 400 to 500 metres a day but after the resuscitation we are able to produce 15,000 metres a day,” he said.

Mr Muhammed appreciated Gov. Buni’s support and policies which encourage contractors to patronise the products.

“The patronage level is excellent because of the directives by Gov. Buni to all contractors to patronise the company’s products, which is one of the reasons the company has been doing very well.’’

He, however, noted that the major challenge for the company was lack of enough delivery vehicles to meet the demands of customers.

“The major challenge so far is lack of delivery vehicles, though the governor has assured us of approving the request of overhauling the old ones and procurement of new ones,” he said.
