Edo House of Assembly has called on the management of Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, to complete all abandoned projects in Uhunmwode Local Government Area and across the state.
The call is the outcome of a motion moved on Monday at plenary in Benin by Mrs Elizabeth Ativie, All Progressives Congress, APC, member representing Uhunmwode constituency.
Moving the motion, Ativie expressed concern that 12 NDDC projects in Uhunwode and several others scattered across the state had been abandoned.
She said that enormous resources had been expended by the federal government through the NDDC to execute the projects without corresponding result.
She said that all efforts by the leaders of the community where these projects were sited to get the contractors back to work had proved abortive.
The legislator urged the NDDC to mobilise its contractors back to site to complete all abandoned projects in the state to ameliorate the sufferings of the people.
She called on the chairmen of the 18 local government councils in the state to furnish the constituency offices of House of Representatives members and senators from the state on the progress of work done on the abandoned projects.
Ativie urged members of the House of Representatives and senators from the state to follow up on the resolution by ensuring that work on all the abandoned projects were completed by the NDDC.
Lawmakers who aired their views supported the motion.
The speaker, Victor Edoror directed that copies of the resolution be sent to the NDDC, senators, House of Representatives members, the chairmen of the 18 local government councils and the governor for action. NAN
