Residents of Alegbo, Okoribi and Ugbolokposo communities in Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State have commended Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for the rehabilitation of three key roads.
They expressed appreciation to the state government for fixing the previous inaccessible roads which for years had caused agonisng traffic gridlock, damaged vehicles, as well as provided opportunities for armed robbers to rob hapless motorists.
A resident of Alegbo community, Mrs. Veronica Oboroh, expressed happiness that the road was chosen as one of those to be rehabilitated, pointing out that its bad nature had negatively affected small scale businesses in the area due to poor patronage and expressed hope that economic activities in the area would improve.
An elder in Ugbolokposo community, Pa David Otomewo, while thanking government for extending the dividends of democracy to his community, advised the Direct Labour Agency, DLA, to “make road rehabilitation a regular activity in order for roads to last longer.”
“The beauty of democracy is when the populace benefits and directly feels the impact of good governance such as the provision of social amenities and other infrastructure, their presence in a community makes the people happy with government, especially when it feels their pains and yearnings.’’
The communities saw the rehabilitation as a welcome development as the Direct Labour Agency rolled in their tractors to commence work on the road to link the popular DSC expressway to the university community of Ugbomro and to Uvwie Modern Market in Ugbolokposo.
