Government to Build Bridge in Ayakoromor
The Delta State government has begun moves to construct an access bridge for Ayakoromor and other riverine communities in Burutu Local Government Area in order to ease access from the area to other parts of the State.
Announcing the state government’s decision, the Commissioner for Information, Mr. Oma Djebah, said the engineering design that will determine the requirements for the Egbo-Ayakoromor bridge has been approved by the state executive council.
The 750metres long bridge will provide access by road to Ayakoromor and other riverine communities in the area, thereby alleviating the burden of expensive and difficult river transportation currently experienced by the people.
According to the commissioner, the bridge will also provide a short link to the on-going Bomadi-Gberegolor-Gbekebor road as well as the ongoing Otu-Jeremi/Okwagbe/Egbeide/Ayakoromor road.
"This bridge project is another eloquent testimony of the infrastructure development programme of the current administration which is unfolding massively in different parts of the state," said Djebah. He noted that the targeted beneficiaries of Ayokoromor community and environs will feel the immediate impact of government with the completion of the project.i
In another development, government has approved another batch of overseas post-graduate scholarship for 26 indigenes of the state that qualified for the programme.
Djebah, who also announced this as another outcome of the state executive council meeting, said the overseas postgraduate scholarship scheme is part of the numerous human capital development programmes of the government.
He said 19 persons are currently benefitting from the scheme in various top-rated universities in the United Kingdom and Europe, adding that "the state government will not relent in its effort to provide avenues for the development of human capital for Delta and the country at large."
