Residents of Onicha-Ugbo community in Aniocha North Local Council of Delta State have lamented the dilapidated state of the only major road that leads to the village from the Local Government headquarters in Issele-Uku.

The agrarian community, has therefore, called on Delta State Governor, Sheriff Oborevwori and the Chairman of Niger Delta Development Corporation (NDDC) board, Mr. Chiedu Ebie for urgent intervention.

The bad spot, opposite Gbonoza Primary School, Onicha-Ugbo had remained unfixed for over two years now, leading to almost total dilapidation, making it impassable for vehicles, motorcycles and trucks.

The Local Council authorities were said to have done nothing to salvage the situation at the early stage of its deterioration.

One of the residents of the town, Ohia Emmanuel Chukwunweike said: “The road in question is the major connecting road between onicha Ugbo and Issele Uku. With the way it is, our parents may find it difficult to go to their farms and Issele uku market.”

“We are calling on the NDDC, Delta state Government and all stake holders to urgently reconstruct the road with a proper drainage system, let our people feel the dividend of democracy.”

Another resident and grassroots politician, Hon. Francis Osedume said: “It is disheartening that both students and local farmers cannot access their schools and farms respectively due to the unfortunate nature of this road.”

“I am appealing to the executive Governor of Delta State, to kindly help do justice to this road.”

Another daughter of the town, Joyce Iwelumo said: “This is a plea as an indigene of Onicha-Ugbo, I’m pleading that our political representatives and the government of our dear state should please come to our aid in fixing the road connecting Onicha-Ugbo and Issele-Uku.”

Another resident, Sunday Adikwanfu hinted that the spot has become an eyesore and need urgent attention from the authorities.

He therefore urged the Government and NDDC to intervene as quickly as possible.

Chidi Ogwugwua, a concerned indigene of the town said: “The sight alone poses danger and it will be difficult for the community who ply this road on a daily basis to trace their parts without endangering their lives.”

“For this obvious reasons, we plead with the Delta State Government to come to our aid in finding a lasting solution to this problem.”
