Edo Libya Returnee Exposes Abandoned Government Contracts in Uronigbe South.
An Edo citizen recently brought back from Libya has travelled back to his community, Uronigbe, to create awareness of abandoned Government projects by the last
administration of Edo state. Abandoned projects included the new Police station, school buildings and road contracts awarded to NDDC under previous Governor Oshiomhole.
In December 2016 Uronigbe honoured Oshiomhole with the chieftaincy title “Okakuo of Uronigbe” for his efforts in developing Uronigbe. Oshiomhole said this was his thank you when they queue to vote for him on 14th April 2007, he reminded them that though the vote was stolen, God restored the mandate. He built Uronigbe Primary and Secondary School and renovated their cottage hospital. He also did an 82 kilometres road project connecting the towns and villages.
Investigation shows the above projects were done in Evboeghae-Ugo because that is ex- deputy governor odubu’s village. Odubu promised the people of Uronigbe South more developments which included a police station, magistrate court and solar powered water bore-hole.
Since November 2016 when Oshiomole left office all the roads and building projects in Uronigbe South have been abandoned, including the police station. The buildings are being consumed by flood and fire including NDDC buildings in Uronigbe South which are all abandoned and un-commissioned.
Today the occupants of Urhonigbe South are accusing the last administration of sharing money and deceiving them for votes. They are calling on Governor Obaseki to come to their rescue or maybe members of the Edo diaspora would also be interested in helping.
