Clark wants NDDC to assist Burutu LGA

CHAIRMAN  of Burutu Local Government Area, Chief Ebikeme Clark has called on the Niger Delta Development Commission ,NDDC ,  to commence the protection of the  shores of the Council headquarters from erosion.

He also called on the agency to consider the possibility of  providing  portable water for the community.

Ebikeme, who stated this during a visit to the commission’s  Director of Project, Mr. Tuoyo Omastuli, lamented that the absence of portable water in the Council is responsible for the prevalence of  waterborne diseases.

His words: ‘’The terrain is such that to get drinkable water from the ground is very difficult and expensive.  There is need to protect the town from being washed away by erosion.. We visited  the  NDDC as an Interventionist Agency to passionately appeal to them to come to the aid of the Burutu people.’’
