Udu Harbour Market Will Be Ready Next Year, Says Delta Gov, Oborevwori

  • Accompanied by officials including the Commissioners for Trade and Investments, Housing, and Oil and Gas.
  • He provided this assurance during an inspection of the project, expressing frustration over its prolonged delay.

On Monday, Governor Oborevwori of Delta State announced that the Udu Harbour Market in Udu Local Government Area would be completed and ready for inauguration by April 2025. He provided this assurance during an inspection of the project, expressing frustration over its prolonged delay.

Accompanied by officials including the Commissioners for Trade and Investments, Housing, and Oil and Gas, the Governor assured the contractor of timely payments for completed work while emphasizing the administration’s commitment to quality. He urged the contractor to accelerate efforts to meet the agreed-upon deadline.

Governor Oborevwori said: “I was here for a function about two weeks ago, and I promised to come here and inspect this project with a view to fast tracking it.

“Contract for this project was awarded in 2006 and the initial contractor abandoned the project and it was re-awarded. I was here with the immediate past Governor when I was Speaker, to inspect this project.

“From 2023 to now, you can see the level of improvement on the project. When we came the last time, the fence was not there and the new buildings were not there as well.

“I made a promise that no project would be abandoned and it is important to note that this project is very key to the people Udu and environs.

“The project comprises 600 lockup shops and 122 open shops, and if it is completed in a very short time, as we expect it will, it will serve the economic needs of the people of this area.

“Keep working because we will not delay your payments, whether I come for inspection or not; I have with me here the Special Adviser on Project Monitoring and Audit, Dr Goodnews Agbi.

“He will be coming to oversee what you are doing here to take measurements and also look at the quality of work you are doing because what we want is quality jobs. We don’t want substandard jobs.”
