“That road is the only road that leads to Egbema Kingdom. Egbema Kingdom is one of the Ijaw kingdoms and is a major oil producing kingdom in the Niger Delta that straddles Edo and Delta states. This important road project has been going on for far too long. “The current NDDC has a moral obligation to continue this project.”

“There is no excuse for our places to be developed this time. Development in the Niger Delta has been stagnant for too long.”
