De­plorable state of Og­washi Ukwu roads

Sunday Trust - - VIEWPOINT - Feyise­tan Akeeb Ka­reem wrote from Og­washi Ukwu, Delta State.

It is pa­thetic to note there are no mo­torable roads in Aniocha-South Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area of Delta State. It is in­deed a sad de­vel­op­ment and we want to draw the at­ten­tion of the rel­e­vant par­ties to the is­sue and its re­sul­tant ef­fects on the so­cio-eco­nomic life of our peo­ple. With­out minc­ing words, the roads are in the area are in ter­ri­ble con­di­tion. The most af­fected ar­eas are: Og­beU­muok­wuni Og­beUbu, St.Roses, Hausa Quar­ters, High court Ubulu Unor and St. Pa­tricks Catholic Church roads. These ar­eas have been cut off com­pletely from other parts of the town

by gully ero­sion. The gully has even dug some mini dams in some ar­eas, mak­ing it dif­fi­cult for even pedes­tri­ans to tra­verse. Apart from the heavy rains and ero­sion, past ad­min­is­tra­tions did not do any­thing to help the sit­u­a­tion. Emis­saries were sent and nu­mer­ous let­ters were writ­ten but all to no avail. We ap­peal to Gov­er­nor Ifeanyi Okowa to make his­tory by over­haul­ing our trans­porta­tion sys­tem and re­ha­bil­i­tat­ing the ex­ist­ing death traps called roads.
