Delta At 22: We’re Moving Forward, Says Uduaghan

emmanuel-uduaghan_0Gov. Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta on Tuesday said his administration would soon embark on the construction of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Lane in the state.

Uduaghan said this at the 22nd Anniversary of Delta and Inter-denomination Thanksgiving Service at the Living Faith Church in Warri.

He said that the pilot scheme of the BRT project would commence at Jakpa Junction in Effurun and Cemetery Junction in Warri.

The governor said that his administration would continue to transform the fortunes of the state, adding that government had also done very well in the areas of peace and security.

“Delta was known for violence in the past, but now it is associated with peace. In terms of infrastructure drive, the state is moving forward, we are finishing strong, and the image of the state is changing.

“At 22, Delta has gone very far as a state, though we have challenges but with prayers, we are able to overcome some of those challenges,’’ he said.

Uduaghan thanked the various religious leaders for their spiritual support to ensure peace reigned in the state.

The homily was delivered by the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, who took his sermon from the book of Daniel in the Bible.

While charging leaders to spend public funds wisely by using it to impact positively on the lives of the citizenry, Oritsejafor urged the people of Delta to be dedicated to duties to enable the government to deliver more dividends of democracy.

The service was attended by political office holders, religious leaders, security chiefs and other government functionary. (NAN)
