Guber 2023: Esievo, The Dark Horse With Huge Industrialization Agenda for Deltans

State News

Perhaps one of the less spoken about Delta State governorship aspirant with a well articulated agenda to transform the state is Chief Abel Oghenevo Esievo, who in his well thought-out vision for the state clearly explained his plans for “”massive industrialization and revamping of moribund industries in the state””

In a recent dialogue with a group of friends, Chief Esievo, an accountant with vast experience in local government financial processes explained part of his industrialization agenda as follows: “This is a carefully thought out and deliberate design to have a multiplier effect on the sub-national economy of Delta state. It focuses on driving a local-content based  industrialization process across the three senatorial districts of Delta State by the establishment of one large scale/labour intensive industry in each of the three senatorial districts annually for the period of my tenure totaling 12 industries. With the local content initiative, the first industries shall constitute the basis towards the establishment of others as they will serve as the seed capital for the next set of industries in the future.  The performance of these industries is sacrosanct to the success and stability of their continued existence.  In other to further consolidate their sustainability index, these industries will be made public liability (most likely at the stock markets), where Deltans can partake in the affairs of the industries with minimal government involvement in their day to day running.  We shall propose a minimum of between 10 – 15% shareholdings of these companies to be reserved for the indigenes of the state thereby enabling a buy-in of Deltans
