Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta has stressed the need to fast track the take-off of the Ogidigben Industrial Gas Park as it holds the key to the economic development of Nigeria.
“It is my hope that this project starts in earnest because it has been delayed for long; we need to fast track the project as it has been on the drawing board for too long and investors’ confidence is being affected.
“It will aid our economic development, not only in harnessing our gas reserve but also providing jobs for our teeming youths.
Earlier, Bayorh, who doubles as the Executive General Manager, Alpha Grip Management Company, said the committee came to meet with stakeholders in the project to share ideas.
He said that the visit would also avail them opportunity to present their road map on how to start and to deliver the project according to specification.
The General Manager said the project would also create jobs and bring about tangible development in the state and the country as a whole.
He, however, called on all stakeholders to work together to achieve the feat, adding that the company was committed to ensuring that the project became a reality in no distant time. (NAN)
