The Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has commissioned the first facemask factory in Nigeria, established by Transgreen Nigeria Limited.
Following His Excellency, Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s post on social media, he wrote, “I commissioned O-Care Medical Face Mask Factory, the first indigenous medically graded face mask manufacturing company in Lagos.
He also added that he personally elated it because it is another first for Lagos and it represents the can-do spirit of Nigerians.
Stressed further that as a government that supports fresh and progressive ideas, they will continue to celebrates and encourage innovation.
“It is commendable that despite the pandemic, Transgreen Nigeria Limited saw fit to invest in a business and product that fits our environment and reality.
“The opening of the factory is a confirmation of what we stand for as a government. We must be the catalyst to nurture ideas, support businesses and create an enabling environment.
“To show our support, we are procuring 250,000 pieces of the O-Care face mask from the first batch”, he rested.
However, thousands of social media users have reacted as some noted that Covid19 will go one day and it will become a story.

“Moreover healthcare workers will still be around, so they will need the facemask. The production line is never a waste if well managed.
Relatively, few injected that facemask will always matter.
