Deltans living in the coastal communities will soon heave a sigh of relief, following the construction of road networks in the area.
The state commissioner for works, Chief James Augoye, who disclosed this while inspecting the 2.193 km Rigid concrete pavement road project in Obitobun, Elolo, Ajakruogbo, Urubu road in Ogidigben Community, Warri South West, assured that all road projects awarded in riverine communities would be completed by May this year.
Augoye said government’s decision to focus on road construction in coastal areas was to set a template for even development, stressing that government’s desire was to give all Deltans a sense of belonging.
He said the state government’s venture to develop the creeks was to make a statement that coastal communities could still benefit from government development strides.
While paying homage to the Alaja of the Ogidigben community, Pa Utieyin Maku, Augoye said the Obitonbon road project which linked four clans was dear to the state government in boosting the socio-economic lives of the people.
The chairman of Warri South West LGA, Mr Taye Touyo thanked Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for sitting such project in Ogidigben despite huge financial involvement given the terrain of the town.
They said the Ogidigben people are peace loving people and assured the State government of their unflinching support and cooperation.
