The Urhobo Progress Union, UPU, Ghana has lauded the Governor of Delta State, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, over the commissioning of the rolling mill of Premium Steel and Mines Limited, formerly known as Delta Steel Company, {DSC} Ovwian-Aladja.

Urhobo Progress Union also noted that the state Governor, Ifeanyi  Okowa’s role in mobilising support for the new investors was commendable. He also thanked the Governor for commencement of works on the project of the Ovie of Udu palace.

This was contained in a statement signed by Comrade Ejovwo Onos Otima, Public Relation Officer, PRO, of Urhobo Progress Union Ghana and made available to newsmen in Warri.

The Ghana-based Urhobo Progress Union leader, in his statement noted that the revival and subsequent commissioning of the first phase of the Aladja Steel Complex, was a milestone worth celebrating as the plant had been without activities for several years since the last investors failed to build on the legacy of the founding fathers of DSC to retool the plant for optimum performance.

He thanked Premium Steel for the laudable achievement of bringing the plant back to life, urging the host communities to support the company towards achieving the mandate before her.

Comrade Ejovwo Otima also expressed pleasant satisfaction with the steps taken by the state government through the Delta State Oil Producing Area Development Commission, DESOPADEC, towards constructing a befitting palace for the Ovie of Udu Kingdom, HRM Owhorhu 1.

Urhobo Progress Union spoke person stressed that the palace, when completed would be a major boost to the traditional institution in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State.

He also commended the Udu Council boss, Chief Jite Brown, for his prompt response to matters of mutual concern to the Udu people particularly the Aladja/Ogbe-Ijoh crisis, calling on government to expedite action in the direction of peaceful resolution of the crisis.
