President Muhammadu Buhari will lead other eminent Nigerians to inaugurate a $250m brewery owned by International Breweries Plc.
The Plant Manager, Mr. Tony Agah, disclosed this on Monday to journalists during a media tour of the brewery located at Km 3 Flowergate Industrial Scheme, Sagamu-Abeokuta Expressway, Ogun State. He said the IB Plc is part of the AB InBev Group, the worlds largest brewer.
Agah said other eminent Nigerians expected at the event include Governor Ibikunle Amosun, Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment Okechukwu Enelamah; and the global chief executive officer of AB InBev, Mr. Carlos Brito, among others.
The new brewery is the fourth plant to be established in the country, as the IB Plc has three others in Ilesa, Onitsha and Port Harcourt.
While Agah explained that the new plant is one of the Foreign Direct Investments which came into the country in the last two years, he added that the first phase of the development of the plant had been completed with over 300 Nigerians already employed.
