He recently revealed this while inaugurating Jesus Saves Road, Agric Road and dualised Okpanam Road in the Asaba capital territory.
According to him, the Niger Delta States deserved accolades for infrastructural development in the region because it has definitely not been an easy ride.
He added that as a former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, he is familiar with issues, including the terrain and cost of developing infrastructure in the region, and he is impressed with the quality of work being done by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa in Delta.
His words, “I am happy to be here in Delta for this momentous and historical occasion.”
“Governor Okowa’s performance is a testament of the quality of leaders the PDP is putting up for governance in the states where they are leading. I must commend him for his competence, integrity, commitment and indeed his wonderful contributions to the growth and development of Delta and Nigeria.”
“I am aware of his outstanding accomplishments in education, road construction, water supply as well as the empowerment of women and youths in the state.”
“I have been opportuned to be Minister of Niger Delta and I know how difficult and how expensive it is to build roads in the Niger Delta because it costs up to four to five times of what we spend in the North.”
“Not many people know what goes on underground in the roads and our people need to be told what Niger Delta states pass through in constructing roads.”
“In most cases, people don’t understand that the underground drainages cost even more than asphalting of the road itself.”
“It is imperative that we continue to sustain our support to governors like Okowa, who has been doing extremely well for his people and for the PDP.”
