Traditional rulers in Delta State have been urged by the state governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, to assist in monitoring projects on-going in their domains with the Federal Government’s Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme, SURE-P funds, adding that he would personally ensure that people at the grassroots benefit immensely from the N1.6 billion already released to the 25 local government areas in the state as their share of the SURE-P initiative.

Speaking with stakeholders and traditional rulers at a Town Hall meeting in Asaba, the governor, who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Ovuozorie Macaulay, said that the SURE-P initiative was an addition to the state projects and programmes, which were put in place to ensure that the downtrodden, women and youths in the rural communities benefit from the initiative.

“I implore our royal fathers, who are the custodians of our customs and culture, to help in monitoring projects that are being executed under the SURE-P initiative as Mr. President, with all good intentions, has put up the initiative, so that people at the rural level will not be neglected.

“Here in Delta State, we have put up many projects and programmes to ensure that the down trodden, women and youths in the rural and riverine communities are not left out of the benefits and dividends of democracy. So, everything will be done to ensure the success of this initiative,” the governor said.

Also speaking at the Town Hall meeting, Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chief Emeka Wogu, said the SURE-P initiative was designed to transfer part of the wealth saved from oil subsidy to the provision of employment opportunities for women, youths and people with disabilities in the various communities.

The Ovie of Uwvie Kingdom, Abe I, who spoke on behalf of the royal fathers asked that the royal fathers should be carried along and be well informed on the priorities of the SURE-P initiative.
