Akwa Ibom to start first pencil factory

The Akwa Ibom State Government is set to inaugurate the first ever pencil factory in the state.

The factory, which is also producing toothpick, is wholly-owned by the state government as it was floated in 2015 under the Akwa Ibom Enterprises and Employment Scheme.

A statement by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Charles Udoh, said AKEES was an initiative aimed at reawakening the spirit of enterprise among youths and positioning them to benefit from the industrialisation programme of the state government.

The Administrative and Utility Manager of the factory, Miss. Nsisiong Umoh, said the factory was currently on a trial run with staff strength of over 60, who were drawn from AKEES database.

She stated that the plant had been producing for two months.

According to her, the factory currently produces about 4,000/5,000 pencils per day; 25,000 per week; 100,000 per month.

She explained that this would increase significantly when the factory was inaugurated later in the year.
