I’ve done my best in developing rural communities, says Uduaghan
DELTA State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan has said he did his best developing rural communities.
He stated this on Tuesday during the commissioning of Sapele/Abigborodo/Aruowun road in Warri North Local Government Council of the state.
According to the governor, “it is not easy to develop the rural communities, especially, the riverine communities, I have done the best I can.”
He observed that constructing link road to Abigborodo was a huge challenge because of the swampy nature of the area.
“This road was virtually built on top of water, my people, the Abigborodo people must appreciate that the efforts it took to construct this road was enough to construct several kilometers of road in other places. I believe so much in the efficacy of prayers, Abigborodo people must continue to pray because the place has a potential of growing, our community must grow, our community must develop,” he stated.
Uduaghan asserted that his administration has provided social amenities to better the lives of the people.
Chairman of Abigborodo Community, Comrade Monday Agbeyi had in a welcome address told the governor, “you are a worthy ambassador of your people and we are happy that you did not betray the confidence reposed in you throughout the duration of your political voyage as Delta State number one citizen.
He added, “our dear governor, your monumental achievements in the areas of portable water supply, education, infrastructural development, health and security among others will for a long time, remain indelible in the minds of our people, Deltans and Delta State history. You have left your footprint on the sands of time,” he stated.
Also on the same day, Uduaghan commissioned Atuwatse II Model Primary School, Uwangue College and Don Domingoes College all in Warri where he charged students in particular to avoid defacing the walls of the buildings and to maintain hygienic standard.
According to him, the structures were built to provide good environment for teachers and conducive learning environment for the students, stressing that the students should avoid destroying doors and windows of the classrooms but rather, they should concentrate on their studies.
Principal of Dom Domingoes College, Warri, Mrs Irene Mega reiterated, “I want to specially appreciate our indomitable, inimitable and pacesetter Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan who deemed it expedient to transform schools in Delta State and made Dom Domingos College, a beneficiary of this wonderful gesture, a twin two-story building of forty eight classrooms.”
She added, “this edifice has changed the perception of the staff and students to strive for academic and curricular excellence.”
