Warri_____ An ljaw Social Political pressure group under the auspices of Concerned Citizens For lzon-ebe Development, CCFID has questioned the governor of Delta State, Dr Sen. Ifeanyi Okowa for failing Deltans woefully, especially the ljaws at five years in office without commissioning any bridge to fast track road infrastructural development to riverine communities across the state.
The group in a Press Statement released on Sunday 31st May, 2020 and signed by its President, Comrade. Oyinbi Onduku stated that, after critical assessment of governor Okowa’s five years in office, we expressed disappointment on Delta State government for not commissioning any tangible project in riverine communities, stressing that the five years of governor Okowa is a total failure as far as Delta ljaws are concerned.
According to Onduku, said: ” lf former governor of Delta State, Chief. James Onanefe Ibori can build bridges, roads, schools, Health Care Centres, Stadiums, Electricity etc. across the nooks and crannies of Delta State within four years in office, what stops Okowa, a medical doctor by profession and the self acclaimed ‘EKWEME 1’ of Africa from doing the same or even do more than the former his boss. As far as Delta riverine ljaws are concerned, Gov. Okowa has failed us woefully at his five years in office when compared to his predecessors.
Lamenting further, ” Onduku noted that Gov. Okowa celebrating five years in office without commissioning Ayakoromo bridge in Burutu is a total failure. Okowa celebrating five years in office without commissioning any primary Healthcare centers, schools, electricity, motorable road networks, stadium etc. in riverine communities is a big disappointment to a medical doctor as governor.”
Onduku regretted that despite Gov. Okowa’s wealth of experience as a medical doctor, former Council Chairman, SSG, Commissioner for Health and now a serving governor for five years, he has not be able to transform Delta state from where his predecessors stopped.
” Okowa should bury his face in shame for celebrating five years in office as a governor of Anioma and Agbor. Spread your tentacle of real infrastructural development to ljaw riverine communities whose bloc votes pave way for your victory at the polls.
Until Gov. Okowa commission the only Ayakoromo bridge project under his administration that will open up road networks as well as other infrastructural development to riverine communities in Burutu, Ughelli South and Bomadi LGA across Delta, he has done nothing as far as Delta ljaws are concerned, the group stated.”
