ASABA—VICE President Yemi Osinbajo is expected at the two-day Delta State Economic and Investment Summit commencing tomorrow as part of activities marking the 25th anniversary of the creation of the state.
The state Commissioner for Information, Mr Patrick Ukah, who briefed newsmen in Asaba after the State Executive Council meeting, said that Prof. Osinbajo was expected to declare the two-day summit open on behalf of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Noting that four governors, ministers and other players in the private sector would also be in attendance, he said that former Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Prof. Charles Soludo, is the keynote speaker.
Ukah added that the committee set up by the state government for the celebration of the 25th year anniversary of the creation of the state had raised N165 million from corporate organisations and private individuals for the celebration of the state’s silver jubilee.
He said that what they had raised was a far cry from the estimated budget of N250 million, insisting that the committee would work with what was sourced.
