Aniocha North Boss Advocates Road Maintenance Culture In Delta

THE Chairman of AniochaNorth Local Government of Delta State, Hon. Chuks Oseme, has called for maintenance culture, particularly roads currently being constructed by the Senator Ifeanyi Okowa administration
in the state.
The council boss made the call recently during the official commissioning of the Issele-Uku main access road, connecting the Asaba-Benin expressway by Governor Okowa, to mark his two years anniversary in office.
According to him, road accessibility is a key determinant of development in communities. Without physical access, rural communities like Issele-Uku and others will face more greater obstacles in obtaining healthcare, education and other social services,” lamenting that the ability to take advantage of surplus crop production and employment opportunity are severely constraint.
Oseme noted that roads are key elements in the provision
of physical access, saying, “Although physical access is not a Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) in itself, it plays a vital role in determining the chances for reaching a number of the SDGs. The rehabilitation of rural roads as one of the key elements of improving access and thereby reducing poverty
is justified only if equal attention is paid to the maintenance of these roads”.
He revealed that the Issele-Uku main access road and others roads commissioned by Governor Okowa are links of transportation network to most communities in the hinterland.
