I want to appeal to the Delta State government, under the leadership of Senator Ifeanyi
Okowa, to help us reconstruct the Adonte Road in Aniocha South Local Government Area of the state. Most of the people in this area are farmers, and the terrible condition of the road is making it difficult for them to transport their farm produce to the urban areas for sale. As a result of this, most farm produce rot in the community, and this is a loss to the farmers.
Even, the traditional ruler of Adonte, Obi Emmanuel Okonkwo, had made several pleas to the state government to help rehabilitate his domain’s road, which is in such a terrible condition.
Good roads have a way of bringing development to an area, but the terrible condition of Adonte Road has brought with it under-development, as nobody is ready to come to the community to invest. Tourism visits to the community, which used to be popular in the past, have dwindled significantly, and this terrible road is partly to be blamed.
Even indigenes of Adonte who are in the Diaspora are not too keen to be coming to their homeland because of the stress they go through before getting to the community.
I, therefore, want to use this opportunity to appeal to Senator Okowa to come to our aid in Adonte by reconstructing the road so that development can creep into the town.
