Mr Peter Obi, the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the February 25 presidential election, has decried the level of hardship business owners in Nigeria go through to remain in operation.

VerseNews reports that Obi while lamenting on the harsh business environment in Nigeria during the 40th Anniversary of Cutix Plc and Grand Reception organized by the company for its co- founder and immediate past Chairman of the company, Ambassador Obi Nwosu, noted that companies in other part of the world who started at the same time with those in the country are doing very well.

He blamed the current state of poverty in the country due to lack of insensitivity by those at the helm of affairs who have not created employment for teeming job seekers.

“Unfortunately in Nigeria, it is difficult doing business, and embarking on the business activities in the country is like committing suicide, you will be frustrated in everything that aid business,” he said.

“When Cutix Plc was first quoted in the Nigerian Stock market other companies in the world like in parts of Asia were also quoted, but today those companies are living in affluence compared to those here in Nigeria.

“Unless the Federal government decides to do the right thing by supporting these companies, they cannot go far and they need support because they are those that create jobs, they are the ones that will turn around the economy and they need all the government supports.

“As Governor of Anambra State, my administration and Cutix Plc constructed the road to the company, Cutix provided half of the cost of the project, while government provided half and the total sum was given to the company to construct the road.

“I also recall being instrumental to the appointment of Chief Odi Nwosu as an Ambassador to Republic of Burundi by former President Goodluck Jonathan, and at this point, I must congratulate him and the Founder of Cutix Plc. Engr Dr. Ajulu Uzodike for holding the company fort for 40 years.

His remarks, the Co-founder and immediate past Chairman of Cutix Plc Ambassador Nwosu, expressed his happiness over the success stories of the company, describing the Founder Engr Ajulu Uzodike, as a brother and friend who saw Cutix Plc as a Commonwealth, and focused his interest in the company to creating an avenue for all and sundry to create wealth through partnership.

“The story of Cutix Plc is embedded in trust and in the last 40 years I have trusted Engr Ajulu Uzodike and Cutix Plc and the trust was never misused and i want to assure you that yes I am seventy years now if I am there or not or that I am no more my spirit would remain in Cutix Plc“

Also, the Founder, Cutix Plc, Engr Dr. Ajulu Uzodike noted that “what we are doing today is to say thank you to Amb Odi Nwosu, for what he has done for us and the company and when he was in Benue Cement Company, and I called him to come and join me build Cutix Plc, his answer was unequivocal and he came without collecting salary and when he was asked to start taking salary he chose to invest his salary by buying the shares of the company”

“We are using him to celebrate the 40 years anniversary of Cutix Plc and celebrating success, and if Odi Nwosu thinks that with his retirement, he is done with Cutix Plc, I tell him not yet because as retirees, we will join hands together to shape things and to manage the affairs in the shareholders sector of the company for the benefit of all the shareholders.
