Human Right Activist Condemns Uduaghan’s Suspension of Warri BRT Project, Says Its Waste of Fund

Abandoned Warri BRT

LAGOS JULY 23RD (URHOBOTODAY)- Human Right Activist, Barr. Omemiroro Maxwell Ogedegbe has condemned Delta State Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan’s discontinuation of the proposed Delta cum Warri BRT project saying the action highly demonstrated the purposeless focus of the governor notwithstanding the traffic hazard it had created for the citizenry.
It would be recalled that Uduaghan on Friday while addressing the newsmen at Asaba, Delta State was alleged to have declared that the much talked about Warri BRT project might not be completed owing to lack of fund.

Ogedegbe in statement made available to Urhobotoday an online medium lamented that while the decision of the government to abandon the project did not only clearly confirmed the people worries of a government surrounded by vision less sycophants, it was also disturbing that Delta State huge and scare resources were expedited for a project that was doom to fail ab ini tio.
The activist who pointed out that the project which highly demonstrated a purposeless focus on the part of the government, despite its traffic hazard on the residents of Warri said, “If the government is reasonable it would have realised that Lagos state government that initiated the BRT project has areas where BRT do not ply cause the road by the expectant standards are narrow. Sadly, like the road here displayed in Lagos does not have a BRT lane despite the fact it was wider that our roads in Delta State it was considered unsuitable for a BRT project in Lagos state.
“Let me sound like a preacher man which I am as the Bible says which reasonable man will first build a house without first considering the cost? From Jesus teaching the act of developing and or constructing a project without weighing the cost is unreasonable. Having biblically backed my conclusion as to the unreasonableness of the Delta State Government resulting in the abandoning of the project, it is never late to become reasonable by pulling away the demarcating slabs that have narrowed the roads and holding us to ram some. We agree with Uduaghan that he can’t finish all project in the state, but not waste huge funds in visionless projects because state resources ought to be reasonably used and not to be gambled with.”
