Union wants FG to establish Tailoring Institute in Nigeria

The National Union of Textile Garment and Tailoring Workers of Nigeria (NUTGTWN) has called on the Federal Government to establish a Tailoring Institute in the country to enhance professionalism. The union’s General Secretary, Mr Isah Aremu, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Abuja. He said that the institute would enhance the capacity and the training of tailors in the country. “We are calling on the Federal Government to immediately set up the National Institute for tailors. “The tailors need to improve on their skills in order to do their job very well, because right now, there is a skill gap in the profession. “And this does not make our tailors to be competitive compare to their colleagues in other parts of West Africa. “So, we want the institute to be established strictly for the tailors to build their capacity and improve their skills,” he said. Mr Ali Paul, President, Nigeria Union of Tailors (NUT) also told NAN that establishment of the institute would enhance the profession. “There are too many tailors in the country, especially now that the white collar jobs are not really available. “ If you look at our teeming youths, especially the graduates, you will find out that as they are graduating most of them are going into the fashion industry. “So, the training institute if establish will create jobs, efficiency in the profession and boost the country’s economy. “It will also take the fashion industry to another level, if established, it will surely be a welcome development,” he added
