A vegetable oil firm, PRAMOT has started operation in Akure, the Ondo State Capital.
The firm, situated along Ilesha-Akure express way, FUTA area, was commissioned by the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Ondo, Most Reverend Jude Arogundade.
Most Reverend Arogundade who was the Chairman of the occasion appreciated the Chief Executive Officer of the company, Mr Tony Aburumaku for his initiative in establishing the firm in Akure.
He, however, charged the newly employed workers of the company to be diligent and put in their best to move the company forward.
The clergy man frowned at the rate companies are collapsing in Nigeria as a result of poor maintenance culture and lackadaisical attitude of workers, encouraged the workers of Pramot Vegetable Oil to build the company and see it as their own.
In his words, “the system we run in Nigeria is too corrupt and everybody is looking for a way to cheat the other person and that will kill any business, there are some people who don’t make Nigerians their managers, they prefer to bring people from other parts of the world, which is not good for our system”.
While addressing the gathering, the CEO of Pramot Vegetable Oil, Mr Tony Aburumaku said the decision to establish the company in Ondo State was borne out of his desire to provide job opportunity for the teeming unemployed youths and reduce the stress of business men and women who travel as far as Lagos to get vegetable oil.
He added that the price of the vegetable oil is very cheap and there are vehicles to ensure easy delivery to any part of the country particularly in the South West.
In their words of encouragement, friends of the CEO, Mr Taiwo Abiodun and Mr Taiwo Adebayo appreciated Mr Tony Aburumaku for coming from the United Kingdom to establish a company in Ondo State and advised the company’s workers to ensure that the standard of the company is upheld.
