Sylvester Imonia: ” He States unequivocally that the proposed Industrial Park is a ploy by the PDP led Government in Delta State to further fritter away the resources of the state and therefore called on the Governor and it’s cronies to jettison this selfish interest of theirs for the interest of the masses”.
“In a bid to enrich some few pockets at the expense of tax payers money, that Delta State should not become a centre for white elephant projects”.
“The party noted that the move is perturbing both to the APC and Deltans at large stressing that, just like the industrial park located in the Oil City of Warri is between sixty (60) to seventy ( 70) percent completion stage but later abandoned, they refused to disclosed how much was budgeted for the proposed Industrial Park in Kwale and how they intend bringing it to reality”.
Delta PDP Publicity Secretary, Dr. Ifeanyi Osuoza in a counter press release revealed that the Warri Industrial Park was abandoned by the previous administration led by Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan due to court cases over land ownership.
” Upon assumption of office Governor Okowa set up a committee to know what was holding up the Warri Business Industrial Park during which he found out that the land was not properly acquired by the previous administration, as a result there are currently between 10 to 13 matters in court by the original owners”, Dr. Osuoza stated.
