By Binebai Princewill

A group operating under the auspices of Concerned Citizens For Izon-Ebe Development (CCFID), has attacked the Delta State Governor, His Excellency, Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa of neglecting Ayakoromo ward 7 in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State.

This was contained in a press statement issued to newsmen in Warri after a visit to Ayakoromo by president of the group, Comr. Oyinbi Onduku, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator.

While stressing on the alleged political negligence of the Ayakoromo people by the Delta State Governor, Onduku had also decried the infrastructural delay in the ward.

He maintained that governor Okowa should consider the likes of Hon.Godwin Edumogiren, Hon.Paul Kurugbe, Hon.Kofi Amasuomo and others from Ward 7 Ayakoromo for appointment, saying the names mentioned above and other PDP stakeholders worked for him, and they where very instrumental in Burutu Local Government Area for his reelection.

Speaking further, the group also lamented over the epileptic movement of Ayakoromo bridge project, as well as the ravaging flood water disaster that have submerged the whole community that have brought untold hardship and affected the community educationally, economically as students could no longer go to school and no place for market women to trade.

According to the group leader Onduku, “said l am appealing to governor Okowa to balance his appointments by giving Ayakoromo sons juicy appointment as well, because they worked and voted for him. Let there be some level of fairness and equitable distribution of appointments, as well as infrastructural development across the various wards in the state.

In his words: “I want to categorically state that, the present governor Okowa’s appointments is lopsided and that it doesn’t speak good for the governor. We urge governor Okowa to balance his appointment by looking into this matter critically. Since Ayakoromo ward 7 delivered bloc votes for him, the governor should complement their efforts by giving them appointment and not paying them back evil for good, the statement adds.”

However, the group also use the medium to call on the Delta State government, NEMA and the honorable members representing Burutu to salvage the community from the brink of flood.
