A Presidential aspirant under the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Mr. Tein Jack-Rich has unveiled his plans to make Benue State an industrial hub and create more than four hundred and fifty thousand direct jobs in the State if elected as President in 2023.
Mr. Jack-Rich made the statement when he received a delegation of founding Leaders of the APC in Benue State, North-central Nigeria, led by an elder Statesman Senator Jack Tilley-Gyado at his Campaign Office in Abuja, Nigeria.
He identified River Benue in Makurdi as a “strategic economic hotspot with untapped economic potentials as encapsulated in the blueprint of his Vision for a Prosperous Nigeria.”
Jack-Rich unveiled the plan to “canalize River Benue and harness its full economic potentials with a view to industrializing Benue State and the Middle Belt in general.”
He added that he has “identified key economic hotspot within the confluence of River Benue in Makurdi, the State Capital where Seaport can be built by expanding and dredging the Canals to allow easy sail and berth of vessels with goods and services in and out of the Benue waterways.”
