Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has intensified efforts aimed at lighting up all nooks and crannies of Delta Central Senatorial District and beyond in Delta State.
According to a statement by the Executive Assistant to Senator Omo-Agege, Mr Aruviere Martin Egharhevwa the program popularly referred to as ‘Let There Be Light’ project by Omo-Agege’s admirers is part of a series of carefully planned intervention projects being initiated and facilitated by the Delta Central Senator to impact directly on his immediate constituency, and other parts of the state.
“Other projects and programs under the scheme include construction and renovation of roads, schools, community and youth development centers, and direct economic empowerment of his constituents which are set to be flagged off in the immediate weeks and months ahead.
“Street-lighting generally enhances local security and impacts positively on the socio-economic development of the communities.
“The People’s Senator believes that our grassroots must be kept viable through deliberate government interventions and based on specific needs of our communities. This is a reason these projects are a continuing feature of his public infrastructure intervention strategy at the grassroots level,” the statement said.
It added that the interventions are being carefully executed in phases, appealing to communities that are yet to benefit from it to exercise patience. “For sure, none will be left behind. We will cover everywhere by God’s grace.
“These projects are for the benefit of all our good people irrespective of political party lines or other sentiments. We have a collective duty of vigilance to protect them from vandalization or otherwise tampered with.
“As usual, we will continue to ask our dear people to always earnestly support and pray for their son, brother, and friend, the Deputy President of the Senate, His Excellency, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege for more grace, wisdom and strength to discharge his duties patriotically and for the common good of all our people,” Egharhevwa stated.
