Koko—Chairman of Warri North Local Government Area, Delta State, Mr Francis Eyituoyor Maku, has invited investors across the country and beyond, particularly the President of Dangote Group, to avail themselves of the serene, strategic and alluring business climate in the council to invest in it.
The council boss who made the call, yesterday said: “The land in Warri North is fertile and suitable for the establishment of a gigantic sugar factory. It measures over 54,000 hectares. Any company that wants to set up a sugar factory will make immense output.
“Warri North is blessed and strategically located. It has a good harbour, with waterways connecting the Atlantic Ocean, making shipping and tourism activities very attractive. The good network of roads with a dual carriageway will equally facilitate free entry and exit of goods and services.
“Again, the area is peaceful in terms of security because of the presence of barracks, including the 19 Battalion of the Nigerian Army. Investors who harness the vast opportunities in the council will find it worthwhile.”
