“ We are building a brand new Sea Port in Pessu, it will cost  800 million dollars. When you stop them from working you are losing such a huge investment where the entire community can be contractors, some can supply sand. There is also the Bonny sea Port that is coming. The best thing to do allow the development. Imagine the companies that have left Warri, let the Sea Port project go on smoothly “, he appealed.

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Keyamo said the federal government was in a hurry to lift millions of Nigerians  away from poverty, adding that with what they were giving out as empowerment in the early stage of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, Deltans should imagine more that will come in the next  few years.

Among items given to women and youths across the entire local government areas at the Petroleum Training Institute conference  Centre, were sewing machines, knitting machines, welding machines and so on. They were also given cash empowerment.
