Jesse Road to wear new look
By Victor Igherighe
Users of the double lane Jesse Road will heave a sigh of relief soon as efforts are now being made to patch the potholes spotted over the road.
Having been touched by the deplorable condition of the Jesse major road, the administrative headquarters of Idjerhe kingdom, the councillor representing ward 6 in the area and leader, Ethiope West Legislative Council, Rt. (Hon) Oyovwikigho Adegor, however prevailed on the council chairman, Hon. Solomon Golley, who was said to have inspected the road and subsequently approved its repair adding that some tipper of granite to be used for stone base during the patching work,
are already on ground.
Assuring that the Commissioner for Environment, Delta State, Barr John Nani, was also doing everything possible within his power for the state government to rehabilitate the Jesse Road, Adegor noted that the council could only do some patching work particularly on the abandoned lane of the road pending when it would be fully rehabilitated by the state government, lamented that there was no sufficient fund in the council at the moment.
While reiterating that lack of sufficient fund is depriving the council of executing various projects in the area, the council legislator disclosed further that the Supervising Councilor for Environment, Hon. Elliot Ofa, had also inspected all the drainages in Jesse, and hoping to commence work on opening of obstructed drainages that is already causing flood in part of Jesse as the rainy season
He however appealed to Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, to prioritize political office holders in the bailout fund, to enable them fulfil their electioneering promises as well as offset the debts some of them incurred during and after their elections.
