WorldStage Newsonline—-The Federal Government has commissioned the completed 6.55 kilometers Atimbo – Akpabuyo road constructed by his ministry.
Speaking during the inauguration in Calabar, Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Dr Usani Usani said the Atimbo – Akpabuyo road links Calabar to Bakassi Local Government Area through Akpabuyo Local Government Area and was constructed by two contractors simultaneously for quick completion.
The minister said the rehabilitation of the road was imperative in order to ease the suffering of the people who constantly use it.
According him, the plan of the present administration was that every local government in the nine Niger Delta states have at least one project.
He charged residents of Atimbo community in Calabar Municipality Local Government Area to prevail on the concerned authorities to contribute their quota to development.
According to him, if every segment of government contributes its quota, the nation would achieve more in terms of development.
” As the Federal Government goes on to intervene in different areas, I wish we all understand that there is a limit to which it can intervene in all sectors of our public lives.
” Constitutionally, there are provisions for exclusive list items and concurrent list items which means every tier of government-federal, state and local , has its own responsibility.
“As you urge us to do more, l also urge you to urge the state, LGAs and private sector to carry out their own commitments because we are all supposed to be partners in progress,” he said.
