House Of Reps Wants NDDC To Construct Road In Ogbia.

The House of Representatives has urged Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) to undertake the emergency construction of Ogu-Anyama-Okodi Road in Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
This unanimous resolution was reached following an infrastructure motion by the member representing Ogbia Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Mr. Fred Obua.
Moving the motion, Mr. Obua said the road which links Ayakoro, Ologi, Otuedu, Anyama, Otuaganagu, Otuekpein, Okodi, Epebu and Emadike towns to a part of the State capital when constructed would engender development and increase economic activities.
The Federal Lawmaker, who is also a Fellow of the Institute of Quantity Surveyors, expressed concern on the dilapidated state of the road fast becoming a ground for men of the underworld.
He urged the Niger Delta Development Commission to include the road in its budget as the people from the area are farmers, fishermen and hosts to oil and gas resources.
Aside the minor amendment to exclude the Federal Ministry of Works as a proposed co-client, the infrastructure motion enjoyed reportedly unanimous adoption with the Deputy Speaker, Mr. Ahmed Idris Wase, who presided over the proceedings.
