DELTA State Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan has vowed to ensure effective and timely execution of projects across the state, saying he would be more in the field monitoring on-going projects as his tenure nears its end.

The governor of the oil and gas rich Delta state also urged political office holders to engage in effective project monitoring to ensure that projects awarded by the state government were executed to specifications and delivered on schedule.

According to him, “we are determined to finish strong; this year is not for people to sit in the office, but everybody must be in the field working, inspecting or commissioning projects.”

The Governor who made the call on Tuesday, February 11, 2014 while inspecting some projects in Asaba, stated that he would spend less time in the office in the remaining part of 2014 to ensure that Deltans get the very best in infrastructure development.

He inspected in on-going Asaba fly-over at Ekwumekwu round-about, drainage project, roads and construction of classrooms and staff quarters at Osadenis High School in Asaba, the state capital.

During the inspection, the governor disclosed that the handing over of schools to their owners including Missionaries has thrown up some challenges because most of the students who were in the schools that have been handed over were moved to government schools where fees are not paid.

Uduaghan observed that Osadenis High School has been upgraded to have sixty-four classrooms while staff quarters were also being constructed to accommodate teachers.

“We are building staff quarters because it is important that teachers are accommodated, it gives them a lot of motivation and makes them to monitor the activities of students,” the Governor said, reiterating that staff quarters would be built in different schools in the state as “fund and space allow.”

He however decried the felling of trees, especially in government schools, stating that his administration was championing green economy and as such, more trees should be planted in available space to provide shade and protect the environment while existing ones should be preserved.
