A group, under the aegis of Delta Central Political Elites (DCPE), has come out strongly in support of Halims Agoda, saying he (Agoda) remained the best legislator from Urhoboland in this political dispensation and condemned some faceless groups criticizing him.
Reacting to a publication in a local newspaper by a group that styled itself, â€œIdjerhe Political Renaissanceâ€ (IPR), Chairman of DCPE, Mr. Edward Irikefe, said the faceless group, in an attempt to discredit the good work of Agoda, had fed the public with lies.
Irikefe noted that Agodaâ€™s personality would speak for him, asÂ he had remained one of the outstanding legislators since he was elected to the House of representatives in 1999.
Adding that Agoda through this period has contributed his quota to national development and has never been associated whit any form of legislative rascality.
The group also faulted the claim that Hon. Agoda has not attracted any project to his people, saying that â€œit is on record that Hon. Agoda was instrumental to the dualization of Jesse Junction – Jesse Town Road , construction of several roads in Jessse and Oghara kingdom, Federal Health centers at Irhodo-Jesse and Samagi-Kokori, water project at Boboroku and Orhono-Eku.
Other projects Hon Agoda also attracted to the Urhobo nation are the dualization of Warri-Port-Harcourt Road, the recent approved Idjerhe-Oka-Ajavweni Road, and the move to hand over the Okkurekpo township road to Okurunoh-Samagidi road to NDDC, the electrification of Irhodo, Ekroda and the surrounding villages.
