The Ondo State House of Assembly has lauded the expansion project of the Okitipupa Oil Palm (OOP) Plc as it set to plant new and high-yielding palm trees on its virgin 6,000 hectares of land.
The House gave the commendation during the oversight visit of the House Committee on Commerce, led by Olalekan Elegbeleye to the company recently after it had been briefed by Taiwo Adewole, chief executive officer, who led the management team to receive the lawmakers.
Elegbeleye who spoke on behalf of the 12-man delegation said the expansion project by the Okitipupa Oil Palm was remarkable, coming at a time when the state government was mobilising all hands to generate employments in a statement.
He stressed that the expansion would bring a huge economic relief to the people and the state as a whole.
“This is an elastic project, it is remarkable, it worth celebrating, when you note that it would give job opportunities to hundreds of skilled professionals and thousands unskilled labour and in addition, can jump-start other job-creating industrial outfits,” he said.
