THE Delta State government today (Wednesday 17/04/13) implored Deltans to take full ownership of all projects being executed in their locality.
Briefing journalists after the State Executive Council meeting in Warri, the Commissioner for Information, Barr. Chike Ogeah said by taking full ownership, the projects would be well protected and managed.
While decrying the conversion of walkways into markets and dumping of refuse in drainages, the Commissioner said, “we will not accept this anymore.”
“It is my appeal to Deltans to take full ownership of projects in their locality,” adding that the Uduaghan’s administration will finish strong by completing ongoing projects.
According to him, “we want to leave many legacies behind, check out time is here, we want the good works of the Governor to speak for itself because we have massive projects going on in Warri area and lots of these projects are not being understood by the people, especially the Warri Industrial Park that is on course.”
“Government will provide the enabling environment and infrastructures at the Warri Industrial Park and investors will take it up from there,” the Commissioner said, emphasizing that priority attention would be given to roads and drainages across the state.
On security, the Commissioner said, “proactive steps are being taking to tackle security challenges in the state.”
He disclosed that the sum of N2.2 billion was approved for the phase two of the digitalization of Delta Broadcasting Service, Warri and Asaba, stating that such was very important because most of the equipment installed during the first phase of the project would become functional with the completion of the phase two of the project.
Commissioner Ogeah also said the EXCO also approved N8.4 million for Basic Certificate Examination, adding that the remodeling of Osadennis High School, Asaba was also approved at the meeting to honour the late Premier of Midwest Region, Chief Dennis Osadebey.
