The youths who hail from Warri South-West Local Government of Delta state, called on Buhari to order the commencement of work on Export Processing Zone (EPZ) in Escravos.
According to them, the resumption of work on the EPZ, will create jobs, and go along way to boost the economy.
The leader of the group, Chief Patrick Bigha, said the zone will create jobs for over 5 million youths who will be engaged from the construction to the completion phase.
An excerpt of the letter which was obtained from Leadership reads: “It would be recalled that during the ground breaking ceremony performed by former president Goodluck Jonathan, on Thursday March 26, 2015, the drivers of the project did say that the project will engage 150,000 work force at the construction level and 5,000,000 work force at the completion of the project. No doubt this is a project that will reduce unemployment to minimum bearing if not totally eradicate unemployment in this part of the country.”
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) have been at loggerheads over the current economic situation in the country.
