Delta State: Assah Federated Community Struggle With Dilapidated Road Conditions

The people of Assah Federated Communities in Ewu Axis, Ughelli South L.G.A, Delta State, are facing a dire situation as their road remains in a state of disrepair, posing significant challenges to daily commuters and residents alike.

Despite being in a deplorable condition for decades, the road in Assah Community has not received the attention it desperately needs for improvement. The ongoing wet season exacerbates the situation, making it nearly impossible for travellers, especially elderly individuals and pregnant women, to navigate safely.

It was gathered that in a bid to address the longstanding issue, an open letter was penned to the immediate past Executive Governor of Delta State, His Excellency Sen. Dr. I.A. Okowa, on September 26, 2022, appealing for urgent intervention in the construction of the Assah Community road. The letter, authored by Henry Ejenavi Egedegbe, an Advocate of Peace and A Crusader for Good Governance, highlights the community’s sense of neglect and frustration over the lack of basic infrastructure and amenities.

Residents lament the absence of government-functioning properties in the area, including electricity, clean water sources, and adequate healthcare facilities. The dire state of primary and secondary school buildings further compounds the challenges faced by children in accessing quality education.

Despite previous protests and promises of action from government officials, including Governor Okowa, no progress has been made in addressing the community’s grievances. The lack of road access not only hinders economic activities, such as transporting agricultural produce to urban areas but also contributes to the overall decline in living standards for residents.

As calls for assistance grow louder, community members urge Governor Sheriff Oborevwori, the State House of Assembly representative, Hon. Festus Eseoghene Utuama, and other stakeholders to prioritize the rehabilitation of the Assah Community road and address the pressing needs of the residents.

The plight of Assah Federated Communities underscores the urgent need for government intervention to improve infrastructure and uplift the quality of life for all citizens, particularly those in underserved rural areas.
