The Delta State Government has come out to approve the widening and rehabilitation of the 2.1 kilometres Orhunwhorun Road in Udu Local Government Area of the state at a total cost of N398.2 million.

The Commissioner for Information, Mr Charles Aniagwu recently revealed this after the state Exco meeting at Government House, Asaba, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, the rehabilitation work would start from Orhunwhorun to DSC in Ovwian Alaja, and it is part of the first State Executive Council meeting for year 2021, which was presided by the governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa.

He added that approval was also given by the state Exco for the construction of Aragba-Orogun township Roads in Ughelli North Local Government Area of the state at a total cost of N552 million, stressing that compensation would be paid in the construction of the road.

His words, “Today (Friday), being the first Exco of the year, we considered quite a number of projects and we are hopeful that in the course of the year, we will begin to give trends to most of those projects that are outlined in the 2021 budget.”

β€œSo, our 2021 budget is fully operational; anybody who is bringing memo to Exco would be referring to 2021 budget and not 2020 budget because we have started running the 2021 budget.”

“We started by approving the establishment of the Kwale Industrial Park. That establishment now means that we now have a Multi-Purpose vehicle through which we are going to implement the full establishment and operationalisation of that industrial park.

β€œThis Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) that is being established in the name of Kwale Industrial Park is going to be the government eye. The government is going to hold not more than 25 per cent of the equity of that industrial park.”

β€œAnd out of that 25 per cent, government will consider what is necessary to take care of host communities. We are not holding it in trust for host communities because we are paying compensation for the land that we are acquiring.”
