The President of the association, Tony Amechi, in a statement on Saturday, said the Ndokwa region had been neglected in the scheme of things by the state government.
Amechi said, “Our region was neglected in the newly approved construction of roads spread across several regions of Delta State. Also, there was an executive bill seeking to upgrade some higher institutions. None was situated in the Ndokwa/Ukwani land.
“We believe the Ndokwa land should not be discriminated against in the distribution and allocation of projects in the state. It will also amount to gross socioeconomic injustice to leave Ndokwa land without any meaningful developmental project as this will amount to a lack of inclusiveness in governance, especially when the area contributes heavily to the revenue generation of the state.”
The statement also quoted the secretary of the association, Evans Ufeli, as calling on the representatives of Ndokwa in the state assembly to wake up to their responsibilities.
