Ogoni youths warn lawmaker over Bodo-Bonny road

Youths in Ogoni Land have sternly warned the lawmaker representing Obio/Akpor Federal Constituency at the National Assembly, Mr Kingsley Chinda and other of his colleagues to stop politicising the ongoing Bodo-Bonny road project by the Federal Government.

They said that the politicisation of the project would affect its execution and completion within the stipulated seven years period.

Chinda had after President Muhammadu Buhari submitted the 2019 Appropriation Bill to the National Assembly, claimed that work on Bodo-Bonny road had been abandoned.

But to disapprove claims by the lawmaker, concerned youths of Ogoni, yesterday, mobilised to the site of the project to ascertain the true position and state of the project.

Speaking after over eight kilometres walk at the site, Fynface Dumnamene, said: “Anybody who says work is not ongoing on Bodo-Bonny road is not being fair. Work is going on the project.

“To prove that I went to the site on December 21 and again today (yesterday) and we met contractors on site.

“I am calling on the Ogoni, Bonny and Andoni people to give the government the cooperation in the area of security because the importance of the road cannot be over emphasized.”
