Group Charge FG, NDDC on the Completion of East-West Road

A group, the Niger Delta Ethnic Nationalities Youth Leaders Council (NDENYLC), has called on the federal government, the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs, and the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) to, as a matter of urgency, ensure the completion of the East-West Road, which has been under construction for over 14 years.

In a communiqué signed by the President General of the group, Terry Obieh, and the Secretary-General, Captain Henshaw Bassey, issued to journalists at the end of their meeting in Uyo, the group lamented that the road has remained a death trap for commuters over the years.

The group commended the MD of NDDC, Dr Samuel Ogbuku, for his giant strides so far in the commission, appealing to him to work with the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs and prioritise the completion of the road.

The group enjoined the people of the Niger Delta to give NDDC all the required support to deliver on its mandate, even as it urged the prospective Minister of Niger Delta Affairs to work with the current MD of NDDC to finish strong in executing his ongoing developmental programmes for the youths of the region.
