By: Our Reporter, Delta state


In its determination to attract more people oriented projects and developments to oil rich Isoko nation of Delta state, South-South Nigeria, ‘UMEH NEED ROAD’  a face book social network forum has constituted a five man project assessment committee.


The committee charged with among other obligations is to assess all ongoing state and federal government projects as well as abandoned ones in the land in a bid to making sure that all the projects are well executed according to standard and specifications.

In a press release signed by the secretary general of the forum, Mr. Zino Ugboma and made available to newsmen in Asaba stated that “Sequel to the motion moved by the founder and administrator of the forum, Barrister Duncan Afahokor and supported by all members a project assessment committee was set up.”


The statement gave the names of the inaugurated committee to include Mr Dennis Kola Obrogo who shall serve as the Chairman, Mr. Japhet Zino Uzih, Secretary, Mr. Mike Akpodhoma, Mr. Azilo Ogunye and Mr. Vigour Udanya are to serve as members.


“The committee is to assess the level of work of all ongoing projects within the two Isoko local government areas and this is based on the Delta state Governor’s commitment in the Forum” adding that the committee shall pay special attention to the following projects in the land which include the ongoing construction of Umeh Road, Isoko Modern school, Iyede-Olomoro Road, ongoing renovation of six schools, the Emore Road Oleh, Faculty of Engineering Complex, Oleh campus, Aviara-Uzere Road, NDC Road Ozoro and the Emede Craft Centre among others.
According to the release, the findings of the committee shall serve as a basis of a report to be compiled and forwarded to Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan on behalf of the Forum.
The statement, while wishing members of the committee success in their task, the Forum also used the opportunity to thank Barrister Paul Emerhana, Barrister Afor Irogbo, Barrister Solomon Afahokor, Barrister Duncan Afahokor and Mr Endurance Edafewotu for their financial commitments towards the actualisation of committee.

The release urged the chairman of the committee to liaise with the donors to access the funds and swing into action on the expiration of the period of national mourning.

UMEH NEED ROAD which has Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan as a member and over a thousand members is a forum specifically designed to promote infrastructural development in the neighbourhood.


It is a medium to enshrine peace in the society. It also promotes brotherly love, social interactions and togetherness. UMEH NEED ROAD which is fondly known as ‘UNR’ is not a political arena for verbal war, blackmail of constituted authority and to mislead the unintelligent populace.


What UNR stands to achieve is to allow for the expression of collective misfortune in a most constructive manner with a view to allowing (not coercing) the relevant authorities for assistance. Thus, the frustration of the neglected Umeh road, since ages, was thrown open to the world via UNR forum, and today, the progress of work speaks volume for itself.
