By Sunday Apah Special Correspondent, Ughelli A SOCIO-Economic and Political group under the auspices of Ethiope East Forum has called on the Delta State government and individuals in the local government area to revolutionalise the area industrially.
In a statement signed by the Chairman and Secretary, Elder Sunny Emekeme, and Dr Akpofure Rim-Rukeh, the group particularly made reference to the absence of any industry in the entire local government area and had brought unemployment to the area, saying that it will go a long way to stemming the tide of criminality in the state.
The statement which further commended the developmental projects of the Delta State PDP led administration, urged all Deltans at home and in the Diaspora to actively support the Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan's three point-agenda to achieve his vision of "Delta Beyond Oil", using the opportunity to appreciate the governor over the renovation and eventual commissioning of Eku Baptist Medical Centre. The forum also appealed to the governor to ensure that the dualisation of Eku/PTI road be commissioned during his administration, saying that the forum had equally called on Delta State government to consider the plight of the Kokori people to restore normalcy in the area to boost the socio-economic activities of the area.
The forum also condemned the brutal killings of innocent Nigerians and the abduction of over 200 Chibok girls by the Boko Haram sect and called on the security agencies to take proactive measures to curb the menace.
