P&G Set To Shut Down $300 Million Nigeria Production Plant In Ogun State

About a year after commissioning its largest Nigerian plant, Procter & Gamble (P&G) is set to shut the plant. The leading FMCG (Fast-moving Consumer goods) is set to shut the production plant situated in Agbara Industrial Estate, Ogun State, PREMIUM TIMES can report.

The company expanded its footprint in Nigeria in June 2017 with the commissioning of the state of the art production line which reportedly cost the firm about $300 million to complete.

The plant is for its ‘Always’ and Pampers brand of sanitary pads and diapers.
Sources at the firm said about 120 workers are being laid off as part of the shut down with some of them already receiving their disengagement letters which is to commence next month.

The company, a multinational FCMG with stakes in about 180 countries of the world, is the producer of Always sanitary pad, Pampers, Ariel detergent, Oral B toothpaste, Gillete shaving stick, among other products in the Nigerian market.

The shutdown is coming barely a year after the production line was commissioned by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State.

Insiders familiar with the development told PREMIUM TIMES that the company is battling with the challenge posed by government policies that regulate importation of raw materials for its production. A source explained that the cost of importing raw materials was becoming unbearable for the company, which has refused to involve in shady deals in order to cheat the system and ease importation.

Well, for the sake of National development, this isn't a goodnews. I'm overwhelm by their honesty and i think the government should do something about it for the sake of those Nigerians who depend on the job for their source of livelihood.

@Libra & James: for a company to make such decision, it must be really hard on them. it's quite unfortunate that this development would affect Nigerian employees

Its a bad omen for Nigeria economic considering d capital involved and laid off workforce.
