Okowa commissions pontoon, charges communities to guard project jealously
DELTA State Governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, has commissioned a pontoon at Iyede-Ame with a charge on benefitting communities to guard the facility jealously in order to derive long-lasting benefit from it.
The governor was represented during the commissioning by the Delta State House of Assembly Speaker Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori.
During the commissioning, the State Commissioner for Transport, Hon. Oviemuno Oghoore, reiterated that Governor Okowa should be applauded for the approval and wonderful gesture
According to him, the execution of the project would ameliorate the transportation challenges the over 30 communities in the area were faced with over the years.
Oviemuno further stated that with the provision of the pontoon which was in line with the SMART Agenda of the state governor’s administration that dwells on prosperity for all Deltans, there would be peace and unity as well as a boost in economic activities among the various communities.
The commissioner advised the benefiting communities that cut across Isoko North and Ndokwa East such as Ofagbe, Ibrede, Ayama and Awah to Ewho-Okorafor, Akara-Eti, Akara Obodo, Azagba and Umuti to observe personal safety at all times, while they make use of the pontoon across the Ase Creek.
The Director of Marine Transport in the Ministry of Transport, Mr Ufuoma Edu and Mr Cathoris Ogbogbo appreciated the state governor, the Commissioner for Transport and the President General of Isoko Development Union (IDU) Chief Iduh Amadhe.
Earlier, in a welcome address the Isoko/Aboh communities of Ndokwa East appreciated the state government for seeing the project to completion, and appealed for the motorizing of the pontoon for a faster movement, instead of the hand pulling.
Present during the commissioning were the Deputy Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt Hon. Christopher Ochor; the member representing Ndokwa West and Ndokwa East, Hon. Charles Emetulu, and Hon. Friday Osanebi, respectively amongst other.
