The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike yesterday flagged off the construction of the ultra-modern international tanker park in Eleme Local Government Area of the state undertaken by the Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG).
Flagging off the project, Governor Wike thanked the outgoing president of NUPENG, Comrade Igwe Achese for attracting the project to the state.
He urged other indigenes in places of authority to promote the interest of the state, instead of de-marketing it.
“It doesn’t matter where you are, work for the benefit of Rivers State. Attract projects that will create opportunities for the people,” he said.
Comrade Achese commended the governor for granting NUPENG the 700 plots where the park is being constructed.
