Factors Influencing Industrial Location
1. Availability of raw materials: In determining
the location of an industry, nearness to sources
of raw material is of vital importance.
2. Availability of Labour: Adequate supply of
cheap and skilled labour is necessary for and
industry. The attraction of an industry towards
labour centres depends on the ratio of labour cost
to the total cost of production which Weber calls
‘Labour cost of Index’.
3. Proximity to Markets: Access to markets is an
important factor which the entrepreneur must
take into consideration. Industries producing
perishable or bulky commodities which cannot be
transported over long distance are generally
located in close proximity to markets. Industries
located near the markets could be able to reduce
the costs of transport in distributing the finished
product as in the case of bread and bakery, ice,
tins, cans manufacturing, etc. Accessibility of
markets is more important in the case of
industries manufacturing consumer goods rather
than producer goods.
4. Transport Facilities: Transport facilities,
generally, influence the location of industry. The
transportation with its three modes, i.e., water,
road, and rail collectively plays an important role.
So the junction points of water-ways, roadways
and railways become humming centres of
industrial activity. Further, the modes and rates of
transport and transport policy of Government
considerably affect the location of industrial units.
The heavy concentration of cotton textile industry
in Bombay has been due to the cheap and
excellent transportation network both in regard to
raw materials and markets.
5. Power: Another factor influencing the location
of an industry is the availability of cheap power.
Water, wind, coal, gas, oil and electricity are the
chief sources of power. Both water and wind
power were widely sought at sources of power
supply before the invention of steam engine.
During the nineteenth century, nearness to coal-
fields became the principal locating influence on
the setting up of new industries, particularly, for
heavy industries. With the introduction of other
sources of power like electricity, gas, oil, etc. the
power factor became more flexible leading to
dispersal and decentralization of industries.

FG Sends Names Of 5 Senators With Luxury Properties In UK To UK For Investigation… See List

The Nigerian government has sent a list of names of top politicians with choice properties in UK asking for them to be investigated.

The Nigerian Presidency has said it has written the National Crime Commission of the United Kingdom, UK, to assist in the investigation of five senators with properties in the UK and the British Virgin Islands, ThisDay has reported.

The names of the senators are: Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, and Imo state governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Hope Uzodinma.

Others are Senators Stella Odua, Peter Nwaoboshi and Albert Bassey Akpan.

Chairman of the Special Presidential Investigative Panel on the Recovery of Public Property, SPIP, Chief Okoi Obono-Obla, disclosed this yesterday at a news conference in Abuja to highlight some of the activities of the body in 2018.

He said: “The UK has passed a law that will also help us in Nigeria fight corruption and that is the ‘Unexplained Wealth Regulation’ which entails that if you have a property in the UK that is above $50, 000, you have to explain your source of wealth, and property here does not just mean a building but even jewelries.

“So, we have written the National Crime Authority in the UK asking them to investigate some Nigerian senators who have property in the UK and the Virgin Islands,” he said.

Obono-Obla added that if they are found culpable, they would be prosecuted in accordance with extant laws and made to forfeit such properties.

Obono-Obla, who is also the Special Assistant to the President on Public Prosecution, added that five oil companies are also under investigation for tax evasion and refusal to pay royalties to the Nigerian government.

He said: “the companies have not remitted over $1 billion to the government.

“A lot of oil companies are contributing to the economic challenges facing the country, denying Nigeria of royalties and also evading taxes, money that would have been channeled to the development of the country.

“Working with the Federal Inland Revenue Service FIRS, we discovered that Addax Petroleum has failed to pay tax for five years and so they are owing about N700 million. Then, thanks to a petition we received from Femi Falana SAN, Mobil which purchased an oil bloc in 2001 for $2.5 billion dollars is yet to pay about $1.9 billion of that money to the government. We have commenced our investigations too”, he stated.

Go And Learn Vulcanizer, We’ll Do Freedom For You – Tinubu Takes Swipe At Agbaje

Influential politician and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has fired shots at Jimi Agbaje, for saying that he wants to free Lagos.

“He was in the contest for the first and second times. He is in the contest for the third time. He will fail again.”

Tinubu said Lagos must deliver at least three million votes for the APC during the 2019 polls, adding that it is imperative for the ruling party to hold on to power and that its members “must vote en masse” for President Muhammadu Buhari.

The APC chieftain said: “Here in Lagos, we must maintain a strong outing for APC, a party of progress, development and economy. We must differentiate between a developmental economy and a container economy. We will not accept to get Nigeria corrupt again.

“We suffered 16 years of their failure and fake promises. We have made progress in Lagos We have become the fifth largest economy in Africa. We have six million votes in Lagos.

“Your target should be half; three million or the entire six million. We must vote en masse for President Muhammadu Buhari and Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, our governorship candidate, senators, house of representatives and assembly candidates, and later, our chairmen and councillors.”

Tinubu urged the party’s leaders to woo back those who have left the APC, charging the local council chairmen and councillors to hold meetings with those who are aggrieved.

Commotion As Madman And Hoodlums Take Over Primary School In Ekiti

The teachers and pupils of a primary school in Ekiti state have begun to panic after a madman and hoodlums reportedly took over the school.

According to a report by Punch Metro, the occupation of AUD Primary School, Irona Ado Ekiti, by a madman and hoodlums has sparked anxiety among teachers and parents over the safety of the pupils.

Apart from the lunatic, who occupies about 10 classrooms, suspected rapists, burglars and Indian hemp smokers are said to have made the school their hideout.

It was learnt that the lunatic often chased the pupils around and threw stones at their teachers.

Some of the teacher, who spoke with Punch Metro on condition of anonymity, claimed the development had forced some of the parents to withdraw their children from the school.

The headteacher, Mrs Taibat Yusuf, who said activities of the lunatic and suspected criminals were constituting threats to learning in the school, appealed to the state government to intervene.

Yusuf said, “We are calling on the state government to help us remove the lunatic from the school compound because of the threat he poses to the pupils and teachers.

“The lunatic chases our pupils, throws stones at teachers and threatens them anytime they are in school.

“Teachers and pupils are always gripped by fear that he may invade their classrooms at any time and this won’t make them to concentrate.

“Our school compound has been turned into a den of rapists, Indian hemp smokers and other criminals and this has led to the withdrawal of many pupils from the school.

“Besides, we want government to renovate the collapsing fence which gives easy access to the lunatic and the hoodlums.
