Delta, Investment Destination, Says Uduaghan
DELTA State Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan has called on potential investors to make the State their investment destination, assuring them of quick returns on their investments.
Speaking after an inspection tour of an ultra-modern satellite printing facility of Vanguard Newspapers Limited in Asaba, Governor Uduaghan urged investors to take advantage of the enabling environment provided by his administration to invest in the state.
the State Governor said that private investors were being encouraged to invest in the state because with such investments, issue of unemployment would be a thing of the past as government alone can not employ all the unemployed youths.
The Governor commended Vanguard Media Limited for choosing Asaba as its satellite printing press, which he described as ultra-modern and strategic.
He said, “private investments should be encouraged to go into certain areas of investments and I am impressed with what I have seen here. The equipment is quite modern.”
Fielding questions from newsmen on the possibility of the state government providing such a printing press for its own newspaper company, The Pointer Newspaper, Dr Uduaghan observed that with private sector investments in the printing industry, government would look at areas they can partner with such companies to ensure that the public gets the best in service delivery.
The Deputy Electrical Manager of Vanguard Newspaper, Mr Tunde Balogun who took the Governor on the inspection tour, disclosed that the printing facility has a capacity of more than 100, 000 print run.
