WARRI—LEADERSHIP of Obitugbo community in Warri North Local Government Area, Delta State, has extolled the spirit and courage of Itsekiri Leaders of Thought, ILoT, over its position on projects listed for the Itsekiri nation in the 2016 budget of Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, DESOPADEC.

Chairman of the community, Sir Lawrence Ukubeyinje, who spoke in Warri, in a chat with newsmen, charged ILoT to take a second look at the two-kilometre township road project for Obitugbo community in the commission’s 2016 budget meant to open up the fast growing and developing but long abandoned and deserted community ravaged by the infamous Warri crisis, insisting that when executed, the road which terminates at the Benin River bank and not a tank farm, will be a blessing not only to the community in particular, but the entire Itsekiri nation in general.

The community chairman and former Secretary to the then Warri Local Government explained that through concerted efforts of the indigenes, the community has been able to produce a masterplan of the community, which features a network of well-planned roads with provisions for health facilities, market, educational institutions and others, appealing to the Speaker and members of Delta State House of Assembly not to be dissuaded from approving the road project that will serve not only Obitugbo people but both Itsekiri and all other Deltans in general.
