Governor Okowa of Delta state has described the Warri Port as a key factor to the economic development of Delta State and the nation while calling for the resuscitation of the port.
The governor Okowa stated this when the Olu of Warri Ogiamen Ikenwoli 1 visited him in Government House in Asaba.
He observed that with the congestion in Lagos ports, the federal government should revive Warri Port and other sea ports to boost the nation’s economy.
‘’There is no doubt that the Warri Port is a key economic factor for our state and the nation. The earlier we get it working the better for us.’’
Okowanoted that it is in the best interest of the country to expand, create and develop port facilities, adding that Lagos ports are already congested and more ports will further boost the economy.
The governor used the occasion to inform the Warri monarch of his administration’s commitment to meeting the yearnings of the people through projects that would impact positively on them.
He also thanked the Olu for the partnership that exists between Warri kingdom and the state government, adding that his administration is committed to executing many projects in the kingdom in consultation with the monarch and constituents. Such projects which include Ogheye floating market and Trans – Warri road, he said, would attract much attention from the government during the coming dry season.
Earlier, the Olu of Warri had congratulated the governor on his electoral victory and thanked him for appointments given to Itsekiri sons and daughters in his administration.
