Wike said in his address at a reception to mark the coronation and thanksgiving in honour Chief Mike Elechi as Obua Weze in Elele, Ikwerre local government area.

According to a statement by Mr Simeon Nwakaudu, the governor’s Special Assistant on Electronic Media, said: “Aside the development of infrastructure across the state, we are working with private investors to create 10,000 jobs through key agriculture projects.” he said.

Wike, who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Mr Chukwuemeka Woke, said that the 10,000 jobs would be created with the expansion of Resonpalm Oil Plantation in Ubima.

He said that his administration was partnering Siat Limited to plant new nurseries at the oil palm plantation in the extensive expansion scheme.

He added that his administration was also in the process of re-activating Delta Rubber Ltd. in partnership with private investors to ensure that more jobs are created for the people.

He urged the people of Elele to continue to support his administration to improve their standard of living.

The governor noted that Elele was one of the first communities that started the process that led to the emancipation of the state.

He congratulated Elechi on his coronation as Obua Weze and described the honour as “call to service.’’

Responding, Elechi thanked the governor and top officials of the state who graced the event for their support. (NAN)

  1. Thank you, Mr. Wike for this progressive venture! But, I’d like to propose that you also look into investing in the development of technology in the community. So, that they both (i.e. agric & tech) can compliment each other. This is the 21st century…. never forget that!
