THE Senior Special Assistant to Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan on Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) in charge of Delta North, Engr. Felix Melenu, has said all projects being executed by the interventionist agency must be executed to specifications.
Shortly after inspecting some projects being executed by the NDDC at Kwale, Ndokwa West local government area of Delta State, Engr. Melenu lamented that the aim of taking people-oriented projects to the grassroots would be defeated if they are not executed to specification.
“The desire of our Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan and the people of our dear state is for executed projects to stand the test of time, so, we must monitor the projects to know what the contractors are doing.”
He urged communities where projects are being executed to ensure that they cooperate with the contractors, noting that only few cases where communities have disagreed with the contractors have been recorded in Delta North Senatorial District, adding that such disagreements where amicably resolved with parties involved going home happy.
“It is not unusual for little misunderstanding to happen but, we have been able to ensure that contractors are not disturbed from carrying out their duties,” Melenu said, asserting that there are established channels of settling disputes amicably rather than engaging in actions that will distrust the wheel of progress.
Engr. Melenu urged Deltans not to relent in their support for Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan’s administration, stating, “the Governor is doing very well and by supporting him, he will be encouraged to do more for the people.”
The Senior Special Assistant also urged Deltans to continue to identify with the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), observing that ahead of 2015 general elections, a lot of political association may be established but, “PDP remains the only political party that members move away from to join other political groups and they are welcomed back when they realise their mistakes, it is the only political party that has remained steadfast in working for the people.”
