WARRI - THE Ayakoromo Rehabilitation Council in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State, has commended Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan, for fulfilling his promise of reconstructing the community after its invasion by the joint Task Force, JTF, in its operation to fish out militant leader, John Togo, last year.
The Council gave the commendation while inspecting a guest house constructed with N50 million and handed to the community by the state governor.
Governor Uduaghan had promised to rebuild the community after the JTF's invasion last year. A seven-man committee set up by the state governor, under the chairmanship of Chief Anthony Bamuza, has been overseeing the rehabilitation of the community.
Chief Bamuza noted that women of the community, led by Mrs. C. Agbegha, had protested in Asaba over the JTF invasion, which left many people in the community homeless and some dead.
He added that it was in response to the cry of the women and children that Governor Uduaghan visited the community after which a committee was set up with a donation of N50 million to build temporary structures to accommodate those displaced by the invasion.
The rehabilitation council built guest house of 3-blocks of 26 rooms, which are nearing completion, 4 market blocks of stores consisting of 120 stalls were already completed.
They appealed to Governor Uduaghan to provide more funds for the completion of the guest house and construction of bore-hole in each of the two sites.
