Complete abandoned delta marine school, IPDI tells Okowa
Ijaw People Development Initiative, IPDI, a rights group in Delta State, on Monday called on Governor Ifeanyi Okowa to complete the deserted permanent site of Delta Marine School of Marine Technology, Burutu Local Government Area.
National President of the group, Mr., Austin Ozobo, in a statement, said: “It is our candid appeal that the abandoned permanent site project of Delta State School of Marine Technology, Burutu, be completed without further delay.” “It is wrong that Governor Okowa and other previous governments of the state do not take Ijaw riverine areas development serious.
We are calling on the governor to mobilize the contractor back to the site and if it is the contractor that is responsible for the abandonment of the project, the contract should be revoked and be given to another competent company, while the erring contractor is for arrest for contract scam. “We want to say that failure by Okowa to do the needful, we may embark on a peaceful protest march in Burutua and Asaba to tell the world the level of injustice we are facing.
