"Delta State is a peaceful state, any investor coming this way will have a lot of skilled labour because our people value education a lot, we also have unskilled labourers to feed the Labour needs of the companies, as we are sure they will have quick returns on their investments, " the Governor said. 

He continued, "we are trying to scale up the employment of our youths in the state and any meaningful venture that can take out our youths from the streets will be welcomed."

The Governor disclosed that his administration embarked on different  programmes to equip the youths of the state to be entrepreneurs, observing that the population of the country was growing at an alarming rates and efforts should be made to proactively work to ensure that it did not lead to crisis in the country.
