***Ndakara, Omo-Okpara-Uku, Ogobene, Osawota, Efe-Nogo, others hail Oborevwori as Contractor Mobilizes to Site
In response to the impassioned appeal made by Chief Barr. Benson Ndakara, the President General of Orogun, during the presentation of the staff of office to HRM Omoefe Ozenikpe 1, the Okpara-Uku of Orogun on December 7, 2023, the Governor, Rt. Hon. (Elder) Sheriff Francis Oborevwori, has given the green light for the construction of crucial roads in Orogun.
During the presentation ceremony, Chief Barr. Benson Ndakara provided insights into the kingdom’s economic contributions, particularly its substantial oil output. He also highlighted various needs of the kingdom, including the completion of the Aragba-Ebor, Obodeti-Otorho Orogun Road. Chief Ndakara also emphasized the historical oversight of not providing an official vehicle for the Orogun monarch and stressed the importance of renovating the community center, which will aid in youth development.
Additionally, Chief Ndakara drew the Governor’s attention to the Orogun end of the Orogun–Emevor Road, the Orogun end of the Orogun-Owhologbo Road, and the ongoing construction of a ring road. This ring road is expected to alleviate traffic and pressure off the main town, thereby expanding the community among others.
The Deputy Governor, Sir John Onyeme, in his response, reassured the people of Orogun that the kingdom would not be left out in the sustainable developmental plans of the administration. He specifically addressed the road concerns, stating, “The roads that you talked about, we will report it to the appropriate agencies. Both the Commissioner for Urban and the Commissioner for Rural are people that are very close to me, and I am sure we will work together, and something will come to Orogun kingdom.”
Following this assurance, and the Governor’s timeous and gracious approval, Chief Barr. Benson Ndakara joyously broke the news to Orogun indigenes, revealing that Gomene Construction, the contractor, had been instructed by the Governor to mobilize to the road construction site. He expressed gratitude to the Governor for the prompt response to their appeal.
Meanwhile, Chief Benson Ndakara further revealed that the contractor has mobilized to the site. In his words, “I was at the construction site today, Sunday, the 4th of February 2024, to meet with the engineers and managers. I also drew their attention to the ATAKIRI PORTION of the road that originally had a bridge. They noted it and explained it based on their design, but I insisted on the need for the bridge, as the lack of it was causing flooding to neighboring compounds. They then agreed to take our complaint to the Ministry of Works for adjustment. Work in progress!”
