Commending the lawmaker, Head Teacher of the school, Mrs Oru Cecilia said, “When I was transferred to this school February last year, I cried because the place was nothing to write home about. The children were sitting on the floor to learn.
“I cried to the local government chairman and luckily for us, the state government and NDDC provided us with chair and desks.
“I initially thought that this project was not real, but I was surprised when the contractor mobilized to site in November 2020, only for the project to be 70 percent completed in just two months and as we speak, work is still ongoing.”
On his part, the site Engineer, Mr Duyile Adedamola disclosed that the project would have been completed if not for the high cost of materials, he assured that in February 2021, the project would be completed”.

“With the provision of 500 KVA transformers, businesses will spring up, the welder, Hairdresser, the tailor, the pure water seller will go back to business and that will reduce crime drastically”.
At Ughelli South and Udu local governments areas, Ekrota and Ujevwu communities in appreciation to God and Waive, the community leader said, “The APC led government has facilitated the completion of section 10 of Ujevwu railway line which is about boosting commercial activities in the community and you who facilitated the electrification of the community when the need arose and today, we are enjoying electricity.
