A flurry of road construction and rehabilitation across Ika South local government area of Delta state especially in Oza-nogogo community by the state governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, is cause for excitement among the Oza-nogogo Elite Foundation.

While commending the governor for the Project, President of Oza-nogogo Elite Foundation, Barr. Bernard Oriakhi promised on behalf of the Foundation to give the governor all the support and cooperation to succeed in his programme.

Oriakhi who made the commendation at the sixth annual convention of the foundation held at the community town hall in Ika South Local Government Area of Delta enumerated the good works of the governor, saying ” Oza-nogogo community has been neglected over the years by successive governments until the administration of senator Okowa came to their rescue.

According to him,”for centuries of our existence as a community; we were denied good roads, pipe borne water, good market, schools and other basic amenities.

“We stand tall to greet his excellency the executive governor of delta state, senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa for giving us a modern road to wipe away the tears of under development from our eyes.

“He has done what successive governments both at the local and the state levels failed to do for years”, he said.

Barr. Oriakhi further encourage the people to leverage on the good road network already made available by the governor in the community to industrialize the place and make life meaningful for the rural dwellers as they have just begun a new era.
