Amioku, flanked by the Delta State Director, NDDC, Mr Gbubemi Ogor, and other management staff of the commission, said: “The NDDC embarked on the construction of the Engineering Workshop project for the training of our students who will be better equipped to fill the gap in providing the technical expertise for the success of local content agenda.”

The scope of the project according to the NDDC boss includes “construction of Mechanical and Electrical workshop with administrative offices, provision of electrical materials and fittings and also plumbing and engineering installations”.

Commissioning some of the completed NDDC projects in Warri North, Warri South, Sapele, Ethiope West and Uvwie council areas, earlier, Amioku reminded the people that “the NDDC noble objective of transforming the Niger Delta region and bringing rapid sustainable development to it, cannot be achieved in an atmosphere of great threat to peace.”
