The Enugu State government has raised the alarm over alleged plans by some persons to sabotage the ongoing construction of a Digital Industrial Park (DIP) by the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC).
In a statement signed by the Commissioner for Science and Technology, Obi Kama, the state government stressed that some persons bent on sabotaging the project are disrupting the ongoing construction works at the site.
He said, “Enugu State government had allocated Plot OS/1, Old GRA Enugu (where the green triangle, Murtala Mohammed Park is located) to the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC), via the Enugu State Ministry of Land’s letter reference: No. LEN:38779/8, dated September 8, 2020, for the construction of Digital Industrial Park (DIP).”
He said the park will birth the digital transformation for advancement of the socio-economic goals of the South-East geo-political zone in particular and Nigeria in general.
The state government warned that perpetrators of the illegality will henceforth face the full wrath of the law, and advised any person with genuine grievance to channel it through the appropriate agency of government.
The statement reiterated the state government’s irrevocable commitment to the realization of the Digital Industrial Park project “for acceleration of the digital transformation of Enugu State.”
