Edo Assembly summons NDDC commissioner over abandoned road projects

Edo House of Assembly on Wednesday summoned the Commissioner representing the state in the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) board, Mr. Saturday Uwuelekhue, over abandoned road projects in the state.

The Speaker of the Assembly, Kabiru Adjoto, directed the commissioner to appear before the house on May 28 with a list of all ongoing projects in the state.

Adjoto said Uwuelekhue should appear with the details of the projects included in the state 2018 budget.

The Majority Leader, Roland Asoro, had earlier moved the motion and was seconded by the Deputy Speaker, Victor Edoror.

Asoro said there was need for the NDDC to rehabilitate the Benin-Abraka road and the commissioner should appear before the House to explain this.

He said the Benin-Abraka road leading to some communities in Orhionmwon area of the state had deteriorated, making it impossible for farmers in the area to move their produce to the city.

“The aim of the Commission is to develop the Niger-Delta region and rehabilitate the roads. Several road projects embarked upon by the NDDC have been abandoned.

” For the past four years, the road has been in bad shape. The road also connects Edo and Delta States,” he said. (NAN)
