Chairman of the state Council of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Comrade Ifeanyi Obi made the call yesterday in Asaba while speaking on the 2013 Personality Of The Year award conferred on Governor Uduaghan by the Vanguard Newspaper in Lagos.

According to him, the developmental programmes of Dr Uduaghan’s administration was geared towards making Delta an investment haven which will empower Deltans and make the state to be less dependant on revenue from oil.

“Transportation is a key factor to economic growth and as you can see, our Governor, Dr Uduaghan has constructed a lot of roads and has bought taxis and buses to subsidize transport fare in the state,” Comrade Obi said, adding, “today, with the luxury bus, commuters can pay N600 to Ughelli instead of N1,000 and pay N400 instead of N800 from Asaba to Kwale and this is good for the economy.”

He added, “we are praying that nothing will distract our Governor from this development that we are witnessing in our state, the roads are in better condition, some are being expanded and our people are happy.”

Comrade Obi stated that members of NURTW will continue to support Governor Uduaghan’s administration because he means well for Deltans.

While congratulating Uduaghan on the different awards given to him on his achievements in Delta State, Comrade Obi urged Deltans to also encourage the Governor to do more for the people.

The NURTW Boss used the occasion to congratulate Rt. Hon. Peter Onwusanya on his emergence as the Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly and urged him to encourage credible debates that will move the state forward and complement what Governor Uduaghan is doing for humanity.
