The Ijaw Youths Council (IYC) has commended Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, for developing the infrastructure in riverine communities, particularly Ijaw communities of the state.
The commendation is contained in a statement by the Western Zone Secretary of the IYC, Mr. Omaghomi OluDerimon, which was made available to newsmen in Benin on Sunday.
OluDerimon said the people were excited about the efforts of the current administration in Edo toward the development of their communities.
The IYC western zone secretary noted that this had been the demand of the Ijaws to successive administrations in the state.
He stressed that the recent flag-off of the Ajoki-Ikpako road project and the proposed modern health center at Gelegele were pointers to government’s response to the people’s yearnings.
OluDerimon called on the governor to start building a maritime academy in one of the riverine communities to complement the seaport project and the marine police headquarters in Gelegele.
