The State Commissioner for Finance, Olorogun David Edevbie stated this during the second luncheon of the Ughelli Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture, UCCIMA, noted that the state is passionate in its quest to supporting the businesses and private sector.


The commissioner, represented by the ministry’s director of administration, Mr. Karo Ovemeso, said: “Despite the recession in the country, the Delta State government has adopted measures for job and wealth creation which is the bedrock of the Governor Ifeanyi Okowa administration.”


Earlier in his address, chairman of the event, Olorogun Johnny Esike who also received an award for excellence for his contribution to economic growth, urged entrepreneurs to go into partnership for their businesses to thrive.


He said: “As an entrepreneur, you must plan that the business might fail along the line, hence the need to prepare for failure. Go into partnership and work together with your business partner for the success of your business.”


On his part, the UCCIMA president, Mr. Alfred Avwaruroro said: “The attempt by governments to leave their roles of providing enabling business environment to venture into business has shown signs of error.


“This observation of the signs of error led to the privatization policy and this is a clear indication of the truism of the saying that everybody’s work is no work.”
