Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa has urged industrialists to utilise opportunities of quick returns on their investments to do business in Delta State.

According to Dr. Okowa, raw materials for the manufacture of diverse products abound in the state, noting that apart from the peaceful nature of the state that makes it conducive for business activities, skilled and unskilled labour are readily available in the oil and gas rich state.

The Governor spoke Thursday (03/05/18) when the Chairman, Guinness Nigeria, Mr Babatunde Savage, led management of the company to pay him a courtesy visit at Government House annex, Warri.

“Delta State is a peaceful state, any investor coming this way will have a lot of skilled labour because our people value education a lot, we also have unskilled labourers to feed the Labour needs of the companies, as we are sure they will have quick returns on their investments, ” the Governor said.

He continued, “we are trying to scale up the employment of our youths in the state and any meaningful venture that can take out our youths from the streets will be welcomed.”

The Governor disclosed that his administration embarked on different programmes to equip the youths of the state to be entrepreneurs, observing that the population of the country was growing at an alarming rate and efforts should be made to proactively work to ensure that it did not lead to crisis in the country.

He commended Guinness Nigeria Plc for adding a new brand of beer to its stock and urged the company to meet with its social responsibilities and also, create more job opportunities for the youths.
