Group says EPZ project can end Niger Delta youth restiveness 


By Jite Eriabie 

President Muhammadu Buhari has been called upon to resume work at the Export Processing Zone (EPZ ) in Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta, as the EPZ project will eradicate youth restiveness in the state.

National President of Itsekiri Patriotic Alliance (IPA), Keka Erefoluwa, made the appeal in an interview with journalists yesterday in Warri.

According to him, “The resumption of work will address the issue of the Niger Delta resurgence and the high level of unemployment in the region.

“The $16 billion private- sector driven Export Processing Zone project will also aid in addressing the issue of economic recession and unemployment in our country.”
