by Business News Report

OFFICIALS of the Nigeria Export Processing Zone Authority, NEPZA, visited Warri at the weekend to inspect site and facility on ground for the multi-billion dollars Warri Industrial Business Park, WIBP, designed to turn around the economy of Delta State and Niger-Delta region.
Senior Manager, Zones Technical Services, Mrs. Pwash Eldon, who led the NEPZA delegation to Warri said after the inspection said from what was seen on ground, the state was on the threshold of an economic revolution if the state government has the political will to execute the project as planned.
Her words, ‘’Our mission here is to assess the facility that is going to be used for the industrial park which the state government sent to us, we are here to see what they have on ground, whether it agrees with the report that was sent to us. From what we see on ground, it agrees with the report, it is a laudable project”
“But our concern is whether if the government has the political will to drive this project, even though what they need to drive the project is there and when completed, it will develop the status of the state and the economy also and the country at large”, she added.
Director of the WIBP project, Mrs. Helen Emore , who took them on the inspection tour, disclosed that the project would start at the first quarter of 2012 and that will take five to 10 years to complete.
