“While in full production capacity, it will directly employ 800 people while over 15,000 indirect jobs will be created round the state through the enterprise from sales and repair points.
“It will positively impact on the state economy through taxes, rates and levies and in addition to the state’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), it will create wealth and bring development to the community where it operates,” he said.
The governor noted that the city was also a demonstration of the government’s resolve to partner with the private sector to create enabling environment and provide adequate infrastructure for rapid industrialisation of the state.
