Governor of Delta, Ifeanyi Okowa, says Asaba Film Village and Leisure Park when completed, will boost the state’s economy and create jobs for unemployed youths.
Okowa gave the assurance after an inspection tour of some ongoing projects in the state, including the film village, leisure park and the new technical college in Asaba.
He said that the state government would continue to give priority attention to projects that would boost the economy and enhance the living conditions of the people.
“The twin-project of film village and leisure park would serve as a community where people would go for entertainment, relaxation and watch movies.
“The project, will on completion, also create employment opportunities for many persons, especially, during this period where the number of the unemployed is increasing,” he said.
The governor said that Asaba had always been a “movie town’’, saying that the film village would positively impact on the economy of the state.
Okowa, however, said that the project was billed for completion in 2021 given the circumstances of the nation. NAN
