A former lawmaker and popular youth leader in Ekuku-Agbor, in Ika South Local Government, Hon Celestine Onyibe has on behalf of his community, cried out to government at all levels to help address the electricty challenge in the community. Onyibe who spoke to journalists during the week at Agbor frowned at the Ekuku-Agbor electricity problem, disclosing that the Community has been without electricity for more than thirteen years.
He said, “I’m on my knees seriously appealing to government at all levels to please come to the rescue of my community, Ekuku-Agbor which unfortunately, has been in darkness for more than thirteen years. Ekuku-Agbor at the moment has not benefitted anything from government. We have no good roads, electricity, functional heath care center, security and other basic amenities.
” My community is part of Ika South Local Government and Delta State Government yet, we have no single executed project in our community. We have people who are busy promoting development in other towns and villages but, abandoned their own Community. Ekuku-Agbor is a fast growing town and we will resist any attempt to draw it backward”.
Hon Onyibe stated that he has been playing his part to ensure the restoration of electricity at Ekuku-Agbor but, better results will be achieved when more persons joined in the struggle.
While thanking the Uboh family and Dr. Isaiah Okoh, he called on other well meaning sons and daughters of Ekuku-Agbor to join efforts to restore electricity in the community.
