It’s was coalition of aggressive youths approach to what can be best described as negligence on the part of federal government of Nigeria, in one spirit and solidarity, Ogoni Youths and members of the Ijaw Youth Movement in collaboration with the Eleme Youth Council declared a one week “Operation Occupy The East-west Road.”
On the 1th of August 2021, the Ogoni People’s Assembly, Ogoni Youth Federation, Representatives of the Ijaw Youth Movement, concerned Rivers residents, patriotic citizens of the Nigeria, Lovers of justice etc. declared a one week Operation Occupy East West Road with the support of the Eleme Local Government Council Chairman at the Akpajo-Eleme section of the East West Road.
The one week Operation Occupy East West Road grew with sympathy from day one to the last day with government representatives with a promise to fixing the bad portion of the road.
N-Press Port-Harcourt gathered that ever since the protest ended with a promise from the federal government of Nigeria that the road has been awarded to contractor, nothing has been done on the dilapidated State of that road connecting Rivers to Akwa Ibom states.
The question to ask is, was the road project truly awarded for construction?
In days to come, N-Press Port-Harcourt will bring you details of the protest and what went wrong with the protest as well as the contractor handling the project if any exist.
