The federal government has restated commitment to the welfare of residents of Niger delta region, promising to fix link roads without delay.

Minister of Niger-Delta, Abubakar Momoh, gave this assurance during a visit by the people of Okpameri Kingdom in Edo State, stating that the Federal Government is committed to addressing infrastructural challenges, particularly the dilapidated roads in the region.

In the Niger Delta region, where Momoh oversees the development of over nine states, according to him, the challenges in the region are significant, with the network of roads being a major issue, which he said is a set back for free flow of goods and services to and from the region to other part of the nation.

Momoh disclosed that he had recently urged the Niger-Delta Development Commission (NDDC) to promptly address the collapse of the Comprehensive High School Junction in the Edo North Senatorial District and noted that the deteriorating road on the brink of isolating the entire Akoko-Edo local government area (LGA) will be addressed.
