The Ondo-Linyi Industrial Hub has Automobile Assembly Plant, Paper Mill Factory, Textile Company, largest Cassava to Ethanol Factory in Nigeria, as well as the country’s first MDF Factory that produces high-density fibre and marine boards.
The commissioning is part of 11-day activities to mark the third-year anniversary of the Governor Akeredolu administration.
The Manager of the Ondo State Industrial Hub, Mr Alex Ajipe, said on Wednesday that about 20,000 direct and indirect jobs would be generated when the hub begins to operate at full capacity.
Ajipe made the opening remark during the visit the wife of the state governor, Mrs Betty Akeredolu, to the hub at Omotoso, on the Ore Expressway in Odigbo Local Government Area of the state.
The industrial hub, which is known as the Ondo-Linyi Industrial Hub, came into being as a result of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Linyi City in the Shanghai Province in China and the Ondo State Government.
“Nearly 15 different companies were already sited in the hub for operations, which include wood processing, textiles, exploration and agriculture”, he said.
