Okonta set to reactivate abandoned water projects
Delta State Commissioner for Water Resources Development, Rt. Hon. Martins Okonta, has assured Deltans that all abandoned sources of water supply in the past would be reactivated in order to meet the yearnings of Deltans.
Okonta who gave the assurance in his office in Asaba while fielding questions from newsmen, said that it had become imperative for Deltans to have access to uninterrupted water supply in the state.
The commissioner stated that he would ensure effective implementation of the water law for the overall benefit of the people in the state, adding that there was the need for water to be running in all strategic locations across the state
Okonta, who used the opportunity to express his strong determination to impact positively on the water sector, said that he would soon embark on familiarisation visit to the ministry’s parastatals and zonal offices in the state.
While disclosing that all moribund outstations of the ministry would be reactivated for optimum service delivery, the commissioner appealed to Deltans to always support the Okowa-led administration in its determination to move the state forward.
He, again called on the staff of the ministry to shun acts inimical to the progress of the ministry, saying that the staff of the ministry must be ready to rededicate themselves to duty in the task of actualising the policies and objectives of the ministry, just as the commissioner stated that he would embrace useful ideas that could contribute meaningfully towards giving the ministry a face lift.
The interactive session with the press was witnessed by the Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Dr (Mrs) Felicia Adun.
