OKADA (Edo) – The people of Ugboke, Egboha and Yoruba Communities in Okokhuo and Okada East wards, Ovia North East Local Government Area, Edo State, have commended the Council Chairman, Barr. Lucy Omagbon for rehabilitating their roads.
At Ugboke the people sang and danced in appreciation of the Local Government Chairman’s gesture.
They thanked the council boss and APC government in the area for redeeming their promise to address their problem.
Speaking on behalf of the Odiowere of the community, Chief Iyahen Ota and the woman leader, Mrs. Rosa Ogualigho said they were satisfied with what the local government has done for them, saying that they have not felt the presence of government for a very long time.
According to them, the fixing of the about 12 kilometres road which serves other neighbouring communities including Oshodion I and II, Okokodo I and II and Areyan was a big relief to them.
“We only appealed to the Council Chairman, Mrs. Omagbon about two weeks ago to help just by faith considering the rough nature of the road, but she just surprised us,” they said.
At Egboha I and II, and Sule Camp as well as other Yoruba communities in Uhen and Okada East wards where the council authorities also carried out rehabilitation works on roads, the people expressed their gratitude to the council boss and the state Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole for fixing their long abandoned roads, which they said they always managed to maintain through self-help.
The people, however asked for more social amenities, particularly water (Borehole), while expressing their readiness to continue to support the present APC government in the state with the party’s candidates in the forthcoming general election so that the people can continue to enjoy the dividends of democracy.
