A PDP lawmaker in Delta, Chief Evance Ivwurie, on Saturday commended President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration’s policies and programmes to savage the nation’s economy.
Ivwurie, representing Ethiope East Constituency in the Delta House of Assembly, gave the commendation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Asaba.
He said that the strong economic policies and the fight against corruption by the administration would go a long way in repositioning the nation’s economy.
The lawmaker said that corruption played major role in the economy crisis facing the country, urging all Nigerians to support the government’s efforts in curbing the scourge.
He decried the level of poverty, hardship, pains and sufferings of Nigerians, which he attributed to corruption of the past administrations.
“There is no gainsaying that the country is experiencing difficulties and challenges ranging from harsh economic recession, paucity of resources and insecurity.
“But, Nigerians have to be patient and support the government in its policies toward tackling the situation to make the economy to be better in no distance time.“ he pleaded.
Ivwurie, also commended Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta for his love for the Ethiope East Constituency.
The lawmaker said he had fulfilled his campaign promises of being “a grassroots representative and not an honourable in Diaspora and inaccessible to the people.’’
He said that with his efforts, Abraka and the adjoining communities of Eku, Igun, Okpara Waterside were connected directly to the Sapele Sub-Station, which was inaugurated in December 2015.
Ivwurie said that the once impassable Ekrejeta Road had been rehabilitated with the construction of drainage channels by the state government through its Direct Labour Agency (DLA).
He said that he was able to secure his constituency from the kidnappers and attacks from herdsmen in addition to the creation of jobs for some youths in the area.
Ivwurie, however, called for the support and understanding of people of Ethiope East ‘’in our collective task to enhance living standard of the good people of Ethiope East’’. (NAN)
