According to his Chief Press Secretary and Media Adviser, Oguwike Nwachuku, in the coming weeks, the new-look Adapalm will engage no fewer than 120,000 workers, mainly youths, as it commences full-scale production.
This, the governor said, is coming on the heels of the resolution of the hitherto legal impediment mounted by the company, Roche.
An excited Uzodimma said Adapalm requires no fewer than 120,000 workers to cope with the expected massive production in its current value chain.
In addition to the production of red oil, Adapalm, The Guardian gathered, will also produce palm kernel oil, furniture among others.
Imo State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba, had reiterated the resolution of the issues that held the company from embarking on full-scale production.
“The government has now entered into a tripartite agreement with Roche, Summit Limited and the host community for the function of Adapalm.
“Governor Uzodimma has approved the agreement, hence the commencement of full production,” Emelumba noted.
He also expressed happiness that the commencement of production by Adapalm would impact positively on the state’s economy, thanking the governor for yet another great feat.
