Idjerhe Clan Development Union (ICDU) has commended the governor of Delta State, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, for the rehabilitation work going on at the Jesse town dual carriage way.
The national organising secretary of the union in Ethiope West Local Government Area of Delta State, Chief Peter Efurhievwe, gave the commendation at the ongoing Iyeri festival.
While addressing journalists in Jesse town on the occasion of the installation of chieftaincy titles on deserving sons, Chief Efurhievwe, who bagged the chieftaincy title of the Yoma mi Yoma I of Idjerhe Kingdom, applauded the governor on his transformation agenda across the community and Delta State in general.
He, however, decried the deplorable state of the roads leading to the outskirt of Idjerhe Kingdom, Boboruku from Jesse town and other parts of the agrarian community that are already in bad shape, as well as the epileptic power supply in the area.
He appealed to the governor to urgently address all the bad roads in the community that are already making life unbearable notwithstanding that Idjerhe Community has several oil wells currently being transported to Oben Oil Flow Station and arable land.
Chief Efurhievwe also called on the Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (DESOPADEC) and the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) to compliment the Delta State government’s effort in developing Jesse, noting that the state government alone cannot do everything.
He appealed that the abandoned ICDU secretariat be revisited as a matter of urgency by DESOPADEC which is handling the project.
While appealing to sons and daughters of the community both at home and in the Diaspora to join ICDU in order to contribute meaningfully to the development of their community.
Chief Efurhievwe commended the monarch of Idjerhe kingdom for the honour done on the deserving sons of Idjerhe Kingdom who were conferred with chieftaincy titles at this yera’s Iyeri Festival.
Efurhievwe pledged to do his best to promote things that will move the kingdom forward and never to betray the confidence reposed in him and other chiefs.
