The Concerned Citizens For Izon-Ebe Development (CCFID) has charged the Executive Governor of Delta State, His Excellency, Senator (Dr.) Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa to complete Ayakoromo bridge project despite the governor’s deliberate neglect of the people for appointment into his cabinet.
The group made the call in Ayakoromo yesterday 23rd August, 2019 during a visit at the site, expressed displeasure over the sorrow state and epileptic nature of the bridge project.
Speaking to journalists, the National President of the group, Comrade Oyinbi Onduku lamented that despite the hugged support and votes the people of Ward 7 Ayakoromo gave to Okowa during the 2019 election, what the governor can do is to deprived the people of appointment neither show seriousness to complete Ayakoromo bridge project.
According to Comrade Onduku, ” The Ayakoromo bridge was awarded in 2013 by the immediate past governor of Delta State, His Excellency, Dr.Emmanuel Ewetan Uduaghan. But unfortunately the project has suffered some level of set back due to lack of Political Will and financial commitment by the present government. It would be a thing of joy and honour for governor Okowa to complete the bridge project in order to take the glory for his administration.”
” We therefore, urged the SMART Governor of Delta State, His Excellency, Senator (Dr.) Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa to show some seriousness by releasing reasonable amount of fund for the contractor to complete the bridge in a shortest possible time.
The bridge project when completed, will connect road network to Okrika, Furukama,Ezebiri,Gekebo Obotebe,Burutu,Odimodi, Ogulagha and other neighbouring riverine communities both in Ughelli South, Bomadi and Warri South-West local government areas, the group stated.”
