He stated that Alhaji Aliko Dangote has done a lot in the area of boosting not only Nigeria's economy but, the economy of West Africa, emphasising that the greatest benefit of such investments is, job creation.

The Governor commended Chief Chinedu Ezenyili for the huge investment, especially, in the area of Commerce, stating that his administration has trained the youths of the state to enable them acquire necessary skills to be entrepreneurs.

He used the occasion to thank Alhaji Dangote for showing commitment towards investing in the state.

Alhaji Dangote had in a brief speech, commended Governor Okowa for his commitment towards making the state an investment haven, reiterating, “with the person of Governor Okowa, business is easy to do in Delta State; we have more than 20 per cent of our cement sold by indigenes of Delta State and we will partner with the state government to invest in the state and create opportunities for the youths to be trained and also, be engaged.”
