The Secretary-General, United Niger Delta Energy Development Security Strategy (UNDEDSS), Comrade Tony Uranta has sued for an unbiased disposition toward assessing President Goodluck Jonathan’s transformation stride.
He stated this shortly after an independent assessment of Niger Delta Development Commission’s fast tracked hostel alleged to have been abandoned at the Rivers State University of Science and Technology (RSUST), Port Harcourt.
“The Transformation Agenda of Mr. President is on track. We must report to Nigerians honestly about the giant strides of Dr. Jonathan so far in governance”.
“We have done an on the spot check in the university hostel and from what we have seen, work is progressing appreciably. It is most uncharitable for anyone to say that this project has been abandoned”, Uranta said.
Comrade Uranta who faulted some aspect of the Presidential Monitoring Committee on NDDC report, emphasized that though some projects have been seemingly abandoned, plans were on to reactivate them.
The member, Federal Government's Technical Committee on Niger Delta commended the present NDDC Board and management for placing on the front burner the re-activation of abandoned project sites in line with President Jonathan’s directive.
The RSUST Hostel project manager, Engineer Ebi George told the Niger Delta group that going by the work schedule and progress so far, he was confident that the hostel would be completed in May.
“We are now mounting the door frames and fitting the glass windows. Generally, we are working on the internal fittings which will be completed in a few weeks time”.
