Contribute To State Economy, Uduaghan Appeals To Deltans In Diaspora

THE State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, has appealed to Deltans in the diaspora to support his administration’s effort at developing every facet of the state’s economy in order to excel in all sectors.
Governor Uduaghan made the appeal at an interactive session between the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) governorship flag bearer, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, and prominent Deltans and friends of the state at the new Governor’s Lodge, Lagos.
He stated that every aspect of the state’s economy was expanding rapidly but needed the support of entrepreneurs of the state’s origin resident in Lagos and beyond to contribute their quota so that the state can expand to an enviable height.
Dr. Uduaghan appealed to Deltans to impress it on their foreign business partners to invest in Delta State to reduce unemployment which is the goal of his Delta Beyond Oil economic development model.
Speaking on the forthcoming election, Governor Uduaghan said Senator Okowa’s emergence as the PDP governorship candidate was good for the state, adding that Delta State PDP was working hard to ensure victory for President Goodluck Jonathan and Okowa.
On the new Governor’s Lodge, Dr. Uduaghan explained that the old lodge was demolished and a befitting new one was built to give a befitting image of the state. On his part, Senator Okowa assured the party stalwarts and supporters that he will partner with the private sector to consolidate on the investment gains of the Uduaghan’s administration.
He solicited the support of entrepreneurs of the state’s origin to buy into the Delta Beyond Oil initiative, promising that his administration will continue with the Warri Industrial Park as well as develop agricultural business parks to exploit the state’s vast agricultural potentials.
