Enugu Govt decries alleged sabotage of digital industrial park project
Enugu State Government, on Tuesday, raised alarm over recent efforts by some persons to sabotage the ongoing construction of a Digital Industrial Park (DIP) in the state.
In a statement signed by the Commissioner for Science and Technology, Obi Kama, the state government warned the perpetrators to stay off the project.
Kama said that the DIP is under construction by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) at the green triangle of the popular Murtala Mohammed Park in Enugu North Local Government Area of the state.
New Agency of Nigeria (NAN) quoted him saying that the persons involved in the sabotage of the project were disrupting the ongoing construction works at the site.
According to Kama, Enugu State Government has allocated Plot OS/1, Old GRA Enugu where the green triangle, Murtala Mohammed Park is allotted to the NCC.
He said that the plot was allocated to NCC through the Enugu State Ministry of Land’s letter reference No. LEN:38779/8, dated September 8, 2020, for the construction of Digital Industrial Park.
Emphasizing the importance of the Digital Industrial Park in the state, the commissioner pointed out that the Park would give birth to the digital and economic transformation of the state.
Kama said it will advance the goals of the South-East geo-political zone in particular and Nigeria in general.
The state government warned that the perpetrators of the illegality would face the full wrath of the law when arrested.
“Any person with a genuine grievance is encouraged to channel it through the appropriate government agency,” the commissioner said.
Kama reiterated the state government’s irrevocable commitment to the realization of the Digital Industrial Park project.
