A social cultural political interest group under the auspices of Concerned Citizens For lzon-Ebe Development (CCFID), has urged the members representing Burutu North and South Constituencies in the Delta State House of Assembly, Hon.Asupa Forteta and Hon.Pullah Ekpotuayerin to wake up their legislative business, stressing that the duo should start projecting the problems facing the people of Burutu before the Delta State government and other development agencies for attention.
The group also commended the members representing Warri South-West, Udu and Uvwie Constituencies in Delta State House of Assembly, Hon.Dennis Emomotimi Guwor, Hon.Uviejitobor Peter and Hon.Solomon Ighrakpata on their timely legislative alertness by drawing the attention of Delta State government, as well as other interventionist development agencies to the plight of their people.
The group in a Press Statement signed by its National Coordinator, Comrade Oyinbi Onduku said; ” Most first time members in the State House of Assembly have started making case for their people. Why my Constituency reps are yet to speak for us. Is it that they don’t know the problems of Burutu people? Burutu people urgently needs the completion of Ayakoromo bridge, so as to connect road network to Burutu. The road from Ogbobagbene to Ojobo, Kiagbodo to Agbodobiri road etc needs government attention.”
” It is expected that, our elected representatives should earlier raise their voices before the state government in respect of the needs of their constituencies for prompt attention.
Incase Hon.Asupa and Hon.Pullah is not aware, the first time member representing Warri South-West Constituency, Hon. Guwor Emomotimi has started registering students for JAMB as Scholarship for his Constituency Education Support Programme.
What are the programmes of Asupa and Pullah for Burutu Constituency students. They should start working, much is expected from them by Burutu people, Comrade Oyinbi stated. “
However, It will interest the good people of Burutu to note that, yesterday Wednesday 21st August, 2019 after sitting in Asaba, the member representing Udu Constituency in the Delta State House of Assembly, Hon (Chief.) Peter Uviejitobor while addressing the Press, advocated for a bridge project across Enerhen River to connect Opete Community, as well as to control traffic and complement the aged long popular Udu bridge in Udu local government area.
Also, his Uvwie counterpart, Hon. Solomon Ighrakpata advocated for his people by charging the newly inaugurated Board of Warri, Uvwie and Environs Special Development Agency to quickly as a matter of urgency tackle the issue of dilapidated roads and epileptic power supply in the area.
But it was very unfortunate that, the members representing Burutu Constituencies dodge the Press, keep mute and nothing to say.
It was based on this ground, the group called on Hon.Asupa Forteta and Hon.Pullah Ekpotuayerin to as a matter of urgency wake up to be up and doing to exercise their legislative functions, the statement add
