The people of Igbide community in Isoko South local government area of Delta State have called on the state governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa to bean his road constriction lights on their community.
It was reliably gathered that Igbide community and its sub-communities were submerged and destroyed by the flood.
A resident of the community, Mr. Grandball Oreva, in an appeal to governor Ifeanyi Okowa on behalf of the community said, “The awful effect of the 2020 flood has left all the roads leading to and within the community non motorable.
He said, “Firstly, I want to thank you for the countless and selfless services you are rendering to ensuring that Delta State of our dream in a reality and how you were to manage the whole process especially during pandemic lockdown and the #ENDSARS protest that rock the whole country.
“It will interest you to know that Igbide as an oil producing community in the state and is one amongst the most affected communities in the state.
The awful effect of the 2020 flood has left all the roads leading to and within the community nor motorable.
According to him, “Some of the roads leading to the community which includes, Igbide-Olomoro road, Igbide-Emede road are in a terrible state due to continued flood that has destroyed them.
The Emede-Igbide is an ancient road that has almost turned to farm path.
“Most recently, Owodokpokpo, a sub community of Igbide has been cut off from the entire world by the recent flood.
“We are asking that an urgent attention be given to these roads mostly that of the Owodokpokpo and other sub communities of Igbide can be reconnected to the outside world because the people are experiencing untold hardship, hunger and starvation due to the flood as the communities are no longer accessible.” Ovreva appealed.
