The Enugu Government has warned those undermining the ongoing Digital Industrial Park (DIP) by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) at the green triangle of the popular Murtala Mohammed Park in Enugu North Local Council that it would not tolerate any form of lawlessness.

Threatening that offenders would henceforth face the full wrath of the law, it, however, advised: “Any person with a genuine grievance is encouraged to channel it through the appropriate agency of government.”


In a statement yesterday, the Commissioner for Science and Technology, Obi Kama, insisted that some persons were hell-bent on sabotaging the project due to their disruptive activities at the construction site manifest in different guises.

He said: “Enugu State Government had allocated Plot OS/1, Old GRA Enugu (where the green triangle, Murtala Mohammed Park is located) to the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), via the Enugu State Ministry of Land’s letter with reference No. LEN:38779/8, dated September 8, 2020, for the construction of the Digital Industrial Park (DIP).”

Stressing the importance of the project, the commissioner pointed out that the “park will birth the digital transformation for the advancement of the socio-economic goals of the southeast geo-political zone in particular and Nigeria in general.”

He, therefore, reiterated the commitment of the Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi administration to the realisation of the scheme “for the acceleration of the digital transformation of Enugu State.”
