Oborevwori's Proposed World Class Warri Stadium, N15.7B Flood Control, Okan-Agbarho East-West Road Mega Project

By Latimore Oghenesivbe Esq

MORE for Deltans is now a reality, it’s tangible, it can be touched physically in terms of ongoing projects spread around the three senatorial districts; Central, North and South in Delta State.

Julius Berger Nigeria Plc, being a responsible corporate citizen is alive to her contractual obligations haven been paid twenty five percent of contract sum of N78billion, and has since mobilized to site. The projects are already creating jobs and wealth for both skilled and unskilled workers, food vendors and suppliers.

The state governor, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori is not resting on his oars, and the reason is not far fetched; he’s determined to fulfil his electioneering campaigns promises sumed up in his determination to Advance Delta through meaningful development, opportunity for all Deltans, realistic reforms, enhanced peace and security.

Apart from the ongoing N78billion flyovers, road expansion and pedestrian bridges at DSC Roundabout, PTI junction, Effurun Roundabout and Enerhen junction up to Marine Gate mega projects, for which Julius Berger had commenced project execution, governor Oborevwori recently approved the sum of N15.7billion for flood control, tagged Phase 3 of the Warri, Uvwie and Effurun environs.

The project will cover flood control in strategic areas in Warri South and Uvwie local government areas, more particularly at Airport road, Igborikoko, Bendel Estate and Ugboroke. Residents in these areas of Uvwie and Warri South LGAs can best appreciate the good governance strides of governor Oborevwori, because of the negative impacts of flooding that had ravaged their properties and other valuables spanning several decades unending.

The solution is here through the instrumentality of MORE agenda and the pragmatic leadership of our excessive local content governor. There are more to come the way of Delta residents across the 25 local government areas of the state.

Our government said he would double efforts in spreading development, create jobs and wealth that would eradicate or drastically minimize acute hardship faced by the people occasioned by the anti people economic policies and programmes of the federal government.

Last week, governor Oborevwori disclosed plans to upgrade Warri Stadium to a world class sports facility. As we already know, the governor matches words with actions, and does not procrastinate. He disclosed that the design of the Warri mega stadium is ongoing and that contract shall be awarded thereafter.

It will be safe to assert that governor Oborevwori will award the Warri Stadium contract to a competent contractor that would deliver according to standards and specifications in line with his administration zero tolerance for substandard jobs.

Let me also remind us that CCECC Nigeria Ltd, is working round the clock to deliver on a mega drainage channel in Owa-Alero, Owa-Alizomor and Owa-Odie to empty flood water into Iyi-Amah stream in Ika North East Local Government Area of the state.

This gigantic project, when completed, would convey flood water into the underground channels and empty same into the streams, which is another landmark achievement in government deliberate efforts to solve erosion problems in the area.

This huge channel shall also pave the way for further development that would translate to economic and environment protection gains for government and the people. Governor Oborevwori is monitoring progress of work and the project shall be delivered for commissioning within time.

It is also fresh in our individual memory that governor Oborevwori administration is also constructing the road from Okan junction to Agbarho in Ughelli North Local Government Area of the state. The project will link the East-West road. The beauty of this ongoing project is that upon completion motorists from Benin and heading to Ughelli or Port Harcourt would completely avoid Effurun roundabout traffic via the East-West route to their destinations.

Governor Oborevwori assured that this project would further solve traffic congestions by gaining time wasted on traffic by road users who are in a hurry to meet important business appointments or those travelling from Benin axis to attend functions and social events in Port Harcourt, Ughelli and environs.

Here is the deal. You voted for good governance and prudent use of your state resources to advance the socioeconomic and infrastructure development of Delta State, and that’s what you are getting right now, and counting.

More to come, join hands with governor Oborevwori to advance Delta.
