BENIN—Edo State House of Assembly, yesterday, lamented what it described as the unacceptable number of abandoned Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, projects in the state and urged the Commission to make concerted efforts to complete them.
Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Mr Uyi Igbe, when the state representative on the Board of NDDC, Mr Henry Okhuarobo appeared before the House to throw more light on some NDDC projects in the state, said the leadership of the House was prepared to protest to Port Harcourt, Rivers State, headquarters of the Commission, if the situation was not addressed.
The House, however, commended NDDC for some laudable projects being handled by the Commission in the state and urged it to do more.
It will be recalled that the House had, last week, invited Okhuarobo, to appear before it to answer questions on some seemingly abandoned projects handled in the state, including the water scheme at Orhua village in Uhumwonde Local Government Area of the state.
