Abia Locality Sounds Alarm On Neglected NDDC Projects

Listen to article

The community of Owo Ala Asa in Ukwa West LGA, Abia, voiced worry on Thursday regarding the multitude of unfinished initiatives undertaken by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) within their vicinity.

Highlighted by the community are several projects left in limbo, including the Owo Ala water endeavor, formerly overseen by UNPADEC and later assumed by NDDC, the Ngwaiyiekwe-Owo Ala Unuadienwe thoroughfare, the Obehie-Owo Asa-Obegu route, the Umuokwor Owo Ala Street, and multiple electricity initiatives.

Their sentiments were voiced on Thursday during a visit to Eruba Dimgba, the Abia State representative on the Niger Delta Development Commission board.

Chief Han Okpokiri, who led the community members during the parley, noted that the abandoned projects have caused untold hardship to the indigenes of the community, being an agricultural producing area.

They called on Dimgba to use his good offices to make sure those projects were completed.

According to the community, “We urge you to try to see that NDDC delivers Owo Ala community from the Infrastructural decay ravaging the area”.

Dimgba reassured that the revamped board is dedicated to realizing the commission’s objectives by seeing through the completion of all neglected projects within the state.

He pointed out the prevalence of abandoned NDDC projects encompassing roads, water systems, educational facilities, and healthcare institutions throughout the region. He emphasized that instead of initiating new contracts, the management’s directive mandates the completion of these forsaken projects in both Abia State and the broader South-East region.
