DESOPADEC warns communities against vandalism of projects

10 June 2015, Asaba – Commissioner representing Ethiope East and Ughelli North Local Government Areas on the board of Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, DESOPADEC, Chief Ominimini Obiuvwevbi, has charged benefitting communities to guard against vandalization of projects executed by the commission in their areas.

Giving the charge while commissioning a solar powered water scheme at Kokori community, Ethiope East Local Government Area of the state, Obiuwevbi advised the communities to make judicious use of the facilities to better their lots.

Other projects commissioned were a six-classroom block at Ekrerhavwe Secondary School as well as an eight classroom block and fencing at Oghara –Agbarha Primary School, Ughelli North Local Government Area.

On the furniture also provided by the commission for the schools, he said: “I know benches, tables and chairs will be the next problem of the schools, hence, I got the approval of DESOPADEC to provide newly built school classrooms with the necessary needed school benches, teachers’ writing tables and chairs, even though they were not part of the building contract terms.”
