AIRPORT CONCESSION TO BOOST JOB CREATION, ECONOMY – SSG
The Secretary to the Delta State Government (SSG), Mr Chiedu Ebie, has said that the concession of the Asaba International Airport would create more jobs for Deltans and stimulate economic activities, particularly, export of agricultural produce in the state.
Mr. Ebie, a lawyer, made this known while speaking on “News Across the Nation”, Channels Television, on Wednesday, February 24, 2021.
According to him, the other aspects of development expected from the concession is in the area of movement of cargoes to foster export operations, hotels, a conference centre, industrial site, office facilities, tank farms and a hangar for the maintenance and overhaul of aircrafts.
“We expect that with the investments that are coming and the revenue that will accrue, it will make a lot of economic sense for the benefit of Deltans,” Ebie said.
The SSG stated that the state government was partnering the private sector to boost revenue in the state.
His words : “We settled for concession arrangement for the Asaba International Airport, but there are other things we have partnerships with the private sector, like the Kwale Industrial Park which we started due to the opportunity of gas in the area and the anchor investor-ceramic manufacturing.”
“There are also the Agro Industrial Park in Ogwashi-Uku, in Aniocha South Local Government Area (LGA), the modular refinery in Kwale, Ndokwa West LGA and a trailer park at Umunede in Ika North East LGA of the state.”
“So, there are a lot of private sector initiatives that we are working on; not necessarily concession, but most important is realising that government cannot do it all alone, so there is the need to bring in private investment to boost commercial activities as well.”

GOV OKOWA, GREAT BUILDER, LIGHT TO HUMANITY
By Christian Ogoh
The member representing Ika North East in the Delta State House of Assembly, Honourable Anthony Elekeokwuri, has described Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of the state as a great builder and light to not only Deltans, but humanity.
Honourable Elekeokwuri made the assertion when the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Ika North East Local Government chairmanship candidate, Honourable Victor Ebonka’s campaign train arrived Umunede.
According to him, Senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa had transformed the state so much as the governor that those who visited it before his assumption of office would wonder now if it was the same state they used to know.
” He is a light and this he has proven beyond reasonable doubt through massive youth empowerment, training and engagements, unprecedented road infrastructures, peace and security, upgrading the education, agriculture and other sub sectors of the state economy, too numerous to mention,” he said.
While saying that other political parties, apart from the PDP, were aliens in Umunede and would soon disappear into oblivion, the lawmaker said, “with the people oriented projects executed in our area by the PDP led administration in the state, it will be inhuman of anyone to vote against PDP in the forthcoming local government elections in the area.”
He said that the Umunede kingdom would remain eternally grateful to PDP and Governor Okowa for facilitating the creation of an additional electoral ward in the area, adding that eligible voters in the locality should come out in large numbers to vote for PDP candidates during the March 6 local government elections, not only to reciprocate the kind gestures of the state government towards them, but to continue to enjoy further development of the area.
Also speaking, the Ika North East PDP Chairman, Honourable Chukwudi Agborma, called on the people of area to reciprocate the kind gestures of the PDP led government in the state by voting massively for all the candidates of the party in the elections.

DELTA NLC CHAIRMAN, OFORBRUKU COMMENDS GOV OKOWA’S INFRASTRUCTURAL DEVELOPMENTS, URGES DRASTIC SECURITY MEASURES
BY Johnson Ebigide
Delta State Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Goodluck Oforbruku, has applauded the monumental infrastructural development of the state under the watch of Senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa as governor.
Comrade Oforbruku gave the commendation in a media chat at the NLC secretariat in Asaba, the state capital.
The labour leader maintained that the Okowa Administration had transformed the state infrastructures, noting that road construction and maintenance priority of the state government had positive effects on other sub sectors of the state economy.
He said that building the mega multi billion naira secretariat complex along the Maryam Babangida Way in Asaba, the state capital, was yet another monumental stride of the state government at transforming the state and enhancing the welfare of workers.
Comrade Oforbruku said that when completed, commissioned and occupied by civil servants in the state, government would spend less on payment of rents on residential apartments, erstwhile used as offices in the state capital, adding that there was the need to encourage maintenance culture among the civil servants who would soon occupy the secretariat so as to save it from early decaying, just as he urged the state government to put necessary measures on ground to ensure its constant clean up and maintenance.
Comrade Oforbruku used the opportunity to enjoin the state government to beef up security in the state through effective community policing, adding that the Operation Delta Hawk of the state government should spread out its operation further away from the urban areas, towns and cities into the hinterlands where kidnapping, raping and killing of residents by suspected herdsmen were more prevalent.
He suggested combing of the forests to flush out perpetrators of dastardly crimes in the state, adding that such timely action would ensure food security in the state, as farmers would then go about farming without molestations.
