Publisher urges Ndi Igbo to invest in South-East

Ezeemo noted that the publishing company is aimed at capturing the South- East and South-South reading public.

“We do not have to do everything in Lagos. There is this movement and notion within Ndi Igbo that we should bring our investment home."

“If we really mean it, I do not see reasons why people from here must go to Lagos before they get quality print; that is why we have established a world-class printing press in the South-East, precisely in Awka, the Anambra capital."

“Today, we have experts from outside the South-East, working and running the world-class printing press."

“They are currently transferring knowledge to our people and expanding our local market,’’ Ezeemo told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)on Monday in Enugu.

The publisher, who also gave reasons why her firm participated in the ongoing 2017 Enugu International Trade Fair, said: “With this, we are doing what we are preaching; that is Ndi Igbo investing at home."

“We want to focus in this region and have some national and international news to complement it.’’

The Enugu International Trade Fair, which is being supported by the Federal Ministry of Trade and Investment, is organised to showcase Nigeria’s non-oil products.

The theme of the 28th edition is: “Promoting Nigeria’s Industrial Sector and SMEs for Inclusive and Robust Economy.”

The fair which started on March 31 ends Monday, April 10.
