The Nigerian textile union is urging the state and federal governments to re-open the Kaduna Textile Mills Limited, which closed down five years ago.

The union's acting general secretary, Comrade Issa Aremu, said President Olusegun Obasanjo urgently needs to present a bill that will create more jobs in the sector.

Although a decision to resurrect the company has already been made, the union believes that some governors are failing to cooperate fully in the scheme.
