DELTA State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has assured multinational corporations of partnership in the area of job creation for the people. Senator Okowa gave the assurance on Tuesday, May when the Chairman/Managing Director of Chevron Nigeria Limited, Mr Clay Neff, led executives of the company to pay him a courtesy visit at Asaba. The Governor told his guests that it is impossible for government alone to absorb the teeming number of unemployed Deltans and that it was important for multinational companies to key into the employment programmes of government. “There is no doubt that Chevron has a good relationship with government and the people of Delta State, it is our hope that your operations grow in the state as it will be more beneficial to our people,” he said. “We advise that between you and other service companies, you should engage more Deltans, not only on contract jobs but on permanent basis because, this will seal your relationship with the host communities.” Earlier, Mr. Neff congratulated Governor Okowa on his victory at the polls and subsequent assumption of duty, stating that Chevron has been operating in Delta State for more than five decades and “has good partnership with the government and the people of the state.”
