Ariolu To Construct Ultra-Modern Market In Oginigba
…Sues For Peace, Unity Between Warring Youths.
Chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, Barr George Ariolu has disclosed that his administration is set to commence the construction of an ultra-modern market for the people of Oginigba Town.
He said the construction of the market is necessitated by the need for communities to look inwards for the generation of revenue to reduce dependence on government.
Ariolu disclosed this when elders, women and youths of Elisara community in Oginigba Town led by Chief Anthony Adele Ariolu, Eze Owhor III, Nyenwe Eli Elisara paid a courtesy visit to Chairman at the Council Headquarters on Friday.
He said the construction of the market is part of the deliberate policies of his administration to improve the economic fortune of the Local Government Area.
He added that appropriate measures would be taken by the Council to ensure more economic revitalization programs and projects in the area, appealing for continued support to his administration in its effort to consolidate the economy of the Local Government.
Responding to the closure of the Slaughter market in Trans Amadi, Ariolu attributed the relocation to the State Government’s effort towards tackling insecurity in the area.
According to the Council boss, the construction of the market will kick off from January 2023 and is expected to be completed within the specified time frame to be recommended by the works department in the Council.
Recognising the importance of peace in the development of a society, Ariolu urged warring youths of the Community to ceasefire and embrace peace.
He advised parties involved to unanimously agree to speak with one voice, withdraw all litigations arising from pre-election matters and other communal related issues and make room for a lasting peace.
He further warned youths against forcing leadership on the people thereby leading to mayhem and chaos amongst the various youth set up in communities.
Reiterating on the need for leaders to always stand upright and remain truthful at all times, Ariolu promised to procure a brand new transformer to boost electricity power supply in the community.
On his part, Chief Anthony Adele Ariolu commended the Chairman for his administration’s tremendous project delivery across the Local Government.
He maintained that the Council Chairman through the execution of various landmark projects has proven that charity begins at home, laying emphasis on the interlocking of the Dike-Ariolu street extension and the construction of 19 classroom blocks in Woji Community.
Chief Anthony who lauded Ariolu for his astute doggedness and brilliance in handling affairs of the Local Government, commended the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike for finding their son, Ariolu worthy to lead the people of the area at this period when his expertise is highly needed to put the Local Government in the right track.
