The Otulu community in Aniocha South Local Government Area of Delta has called on the state government to rescue it from erosion that has devastated the area.

The Okwabanbi of the community, Paul Eboji, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Otulu on Sunday.

Mr. Eboji said that the erosion had cut all the access roads to the community, adding that the challenge was adversely affecting socio-economic activities in the area.

“We are presently facing a huge problem from the erosion; we have been cut off from our neighbouring communities,” the traditional ruler said.

“The link road from Ubulu-Okiti is in a terrible condition; the Otulu-Issele-Azagba road is being eaten up daily, and so also is the access road from the Lagos-Benin Expressway.

“Even here, you can’t access many villages by vehicle; it is that bad.

“The three major access roads to our community are now death traps due to gully erosion.”

He added that if not checked, the erosion would completely ruin the community.

Mr. Eboji therefore appealed to the government to address the erosion problem in the community, expressing fear that it nothing was done before the next rainy season to avert further pains to residents.

    I guess that’s why you are not the President. As far I am concerned INTERGRITY is the most valuable asset in any transaction, vis a viz. Foreign and local investments. The President took the bull by the horn and told the world the truth also reassuring them of security, better business climate, etc. Nigeria needs a rebirth. For that to happen we must endure some comfort in order to succeed.

      Well Nigerian are always known for supporting the “person” at the position rather than the truth. You have just written excertly what it is; but I guess this will sound abit bitter to the supports of this government. But the truth is the truth; as this write up and notion is without bias; but someone that’s means well for Nigeria.

    It is always easy sitting 1,000s of miles away and pontificating about government policies. Where was this writer when the Previous government of fraudsters for fraudsters and by fraudsters was on the rampage?

    The business of running a country is about good governance, perception, image, good marketing and of cause adherence to the rule of law. This I believe should be the hallmark of any administration.
