Osun State governor, Mr Gboyega Oyetola, on Thursday, said that the flag-off of the 206-hectare international trade centre and dry port would boost economic revolution in the state.
The groundbreaking of the Osun dry port project followed the foundation laying ceremony of the Osun Ethanol Bio-Refinery Factory last week.
Oyetola described the two feats as marks of economic revolution in the state, adding that his administration was fulfilling its promise to ensure economic recovery and transformation in the State.
Speaking during the groundbreaking ceremony at Dagbolu, the governor described the project as the first of its kind in the South West region and one of the derivatives of the state’s economic and investment summit held in November last year.
Oyetola stated; “As we indicated during the convocation of economic and investment summit, collaboration with core international and local partners is one of our strategies for achieving economic transformation.
“To give vent to our strategy, we have resolved to let charity begin from home and one of the early dividends of the talk is the International Trade Centre/Industrial Hub and Inland Port that we are flagging off today,” he remarked.
