Johnson Suleiman, senior pastor of the Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, has instructed his security aides to kill any Fulani herdsman who comes around his church premises.Suleiman, who recently made headlines for firing one of his pastors for investing the money of the church in the ponzi scheme, MMM, said someone had informed him of the plot to attack his church.
The fiery preacher said he was not bothered over the alleged plot, but advised his members to be at alert.
“Somebody called me on phone and asked, ‘Are you alone? I said ‘Yes’. He said: ‘I want to tell you something’ and I said, ‘What is it?’,” Suleiman told his congregation last Sunday.
“He said, ‘There is a plan to send Fulani herdsmen after you and I said ‘Ok’, and the person said I should be careful and I said, ‘Careful for what?’ He said ‘They are just going to run into the road like herdsmen and begin to cause confusion and while your security men clear them and you come out, they will open fire’. Then, I said ‘Okay’.
“After about a week, he called me and said ‘They might bring them around church premises’. I said ‘It’s okay’. And I told my people, any Fulani herdsman you see around, kill him. I have told them in the church here, that any Fulani herdsman that just enters by mistake, should be killed. If they are busy killing Christians and nothing is happening, we will kill them and nothing will happen.”
His comments have attracted criticisms

Buhari is not dead Says Presidency as Garba Shehu takes a swipe at Goodluck Jonathan

A few hours ago, rumors of the death of President Muhammadu Buhari spread like wildfire on the internet.
The rumor started when Metro UK reported –

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has died in a London Hospital where he was receiving medical care, the Nigerian Mission in UK has said.
According to the information released by the Nigerian Embassy, Buhari left the West African country for a vacation in the U.K in order to undergo medical checks.
One of the President’s aides who accompanied him to the U.K and spoke on condition of anonymity said the President has been battling an “unknown disease” for a while now.
Though the decision to receive medical care in a foreign land angered some of his countrymen, the Nigerian community in London have expressed deep shock for the President’s demise.
It is the second time in a year that Buhari has sought medical treatment outside Nigeria ; he also traveled to London in June 2016 and saw an ear, nose and throat specialist after contracting an ear infection

Gbaja: I would have been speaker if APC didn’t lose some seats in Lagos

Femi Gbajabiamila, majority leader of the house of representatives, says he would have emerged speaker of the green chamber if the All Progressives Congress (APC) had not lost some constituencies in Lagos.
The ruling party in Lagos suffered shocks in some of its strongholds dominated by people of eastern extraction during the last general election.
Gbajabiamila, who contested the speakership position and lost to Yakubu Dogara, the incumbent speaker, by eight votes, believe the development in Lagos cost him the top position.
He described the Igbo as economically strong and politically sagacious, saying they were a force to reckon with in the affairs of the state.
Gbajabiamila was speaking during a luncheon he organised for members of the Igbo community in his Surulere 1 constituency.
“The Igbo are very important to Lagos because they are part of the state’s development as they control a substantial chunk of its economy,” he said.
“But they have also shown us during the last election, that not only are they economically strong, they are also politically important as a couple of them contested and won some seats.
“In fact, if the All Progressives Congress (APC) had not lost some house of representatives seats, a couple to some Igbo, I would have emerged speaker, because their votes would have counted.”
Gbajabiamila said the question of where people came from was fast becoming irrelevant as non-Yoruba speaking people were wielding political and economic powers.
The lawmaker urged all Nigerians, regardless of ethnic or religious backgrounds, to live in unity with one another.
He said the dreams and aspirations of the country’s founding fathers would be realised if all citizens put their differences aside and work in unity for the progress of the nation.
“Nigeria will be a better place if all Hausas, Igbo, Yorubas and the other ethnic groups see ourselves as brothers and work together for the peace and development of the country,” he said.
“Our being together in one country is not by accident; it is for a purpose. We must therefore support one another and strive towards achieving that purpose of a stronger, more prosperous nation.”
He said the greatness Lagos, particularly his constituency, had attained was mainly because of its multi-cultural status and the contributions of people from diverse backgrounds.
Gbajabiamila said he orgainsed the luncheon for the consistent support of the Igbo for him and to appeal for continued support for better representation.
He said he and the party would continue to carry them and all other tribes along in scheme of things not only in the constituency but also in the state.
Joe Igbokwe, publicity secretary of the APC in Lagos, commended Gbajabiamila for organising the luncheon.
He said his gesture had shown that the APC was a party that recognised the need to carry everyone along for a better society.
Igbokwe urged Igbo residents in the state to continue to live peacefully with their host and to do more for the state’s development.
Obulesi Phillips, chairman, south-eastern forum, advocated more inclusion of the Igbo in the political affairs of the state.
He said the Igbo had been age-long development partners of the state and so should be allowed more participation in its politics.

Jammeh goes into exile today


All indications are that Jammeh will be going into exile in Guinea.A senior adviser to new President Adama Barrow said talks to finalise the exile deal were holding up his exit.Image result for jammeh images

Gambia’s former president, Yahya Jammeh will now leave Banjul on Saturday with President Alpha Conde of Guinea, to begin a new life in exile.
This followed Friday’s final peace move by Conde and Mauritania’s President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz.
The two West African leaders travelled to Banjul to persuade the long ruling Jammeh to leave peacefully before West African forces pounced on him.
In a statement issued on state TV on Friday night, Jammeh announced that he was stepping down, a superfluous announcement as he was already no more the leader, having been denied recognition by the world.

“I can assure you that he has agreed to leave,” Mai Ahmad Fatty, Barrow’s special advisor, said  in Senegal’s capital Dakar. He could not say where Jammeh would go into exile.
President of The Gambia, Adama Barrow had earlier confirmed Yahya Jammeh’s stepping down.
Barrow, on his twitter handle on Friday, @adama_barrow said: “I would like to inform you that Yahya Jammeh has agreed to step down.
“He is scheduled to depart Gambia today. #NewGambia.”
Barrow on Thursday took the oath of office as Gambia’s new president.
He was sworn-in about 5p.m. Senegalese time at the Gambian High Commission in Dakar, Senegal.
Barrow succeeded Yahya Jammeh, who lost in the Dec. 1 presidential election and refused to vacate office when his term expired midnight on Thursday.
Gambia’s Chief of Defence, Ousman Badjie, on Friday pledged loyalty to President Barrow.
“West African troops that crossed from neighbouring Senegal into Gambia to help unseat Jammeh would be welcomed “with a cup of tea,’’ said Badjie.
ECOWAS armies halted Operation Restore Democracy aimed at installing the country’s new president, Adama Barrow, on Thursday so regional leaders could make one last attempt to convince long-time ruler Yahya Jammeh to step aside.
In Dakar, the Nigerian force Commander, Operation Restore Democracy, Air Commodore Tajudeen Yusuf, said the ECOWAS forces would not let down their guard, inspite of negotiations for the former Gambian president, Alhaji Yahaya Jammeh to leave office.
He said the troops were awaiting briefing by the political leaders.
Yusuf made the statement while briefing newsmen in Dakar, on Friday.
“”Even if he quits we are not letting down our guard, our mandate is to restore peace in Gambia.
“”We have been on standby, and the troops are still on a very high alert, depending on the outcome of political negotiations.
“”We are not letting down our guard; our mandate is to restore democracy in Gambia,’’ Yusuf said.

My brother’s death has turned our village into a ghost town –Relation of murdered US Army veteran

For several minutes, she struggled to utter a word. Mumbling and grieving silently as she tried to find her voice, it was a few, touching moments laced with plenty of emotions. When she finally spoke, they were words that reflected a heart ripped apart by anguish.

“They killed my brother like an ordinary animal,” she stuttered, looking for the next expression to cling on. “They killed him in a ruthless manner. He did not deserve to die that way. We still cannot believe he is truly gone,” Lilian Ndiukwu, said as she battled tears.
Since the afternoon of January 12, 2017 when news of the gruesome murder of her cousin – Chuks Okebata, a Nigerian-born United States of America Army Reserve, in their native Umuduruorie in Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo State, spread like wildfire, all has not been well for the young woman, their immediate and extended family members, kinsmen and all who knew him closely. The 35-year-old heavily-built military personnel, who had left his base in Philadelphia, US, on December 22, 2016 to travel down home in company with two of his white friends ahead of the opening of his new house four days later, had no inkling of what laid in wait for him when he made the long trip. Even though he had lived most of his adult life in his adopted homeland, Okebata, the eight child of an Anglican reverend, never forgot his roots and modest beginning. The new house, apart from providing a decent shelter for him, his immediate family and friends whenever he visited Umuduruorie, would also provide the platform for him to continually bond with his native land. In spirit, soul and body – Chuks was a village man in every sense of the word.
“He loved everything about his hometown,” Ndiukwu told our correspondent during a telephone conversation earlier in the week. “Even though his mother conceived him in the US, he was actually given birth to in Nigeria and in fact lived the first 12 years of his life in the village with his elder sister before they all moved to the US. For this reason, he loved the village and always looked forward to visiting whenever he had the chance.
“He decided to complete and open his house last December so that it would be easier for him to visit home more often. The ceremony of December 26 was a big feast; everybody was happy and had a great time. But we never knew that in a matter of days, our joy would turn into mourning,” she said as her voice grew colder – a testament of how heartbroken she still is.
Initially moving with armed escorts in his first few days in the country especially before his white friends travelled back to the US on December 29, Okebata felt there was no need to carry on with that since he had no score to settle with anyone and even had his own service pistol on him as well. Even though his mother, who also came home for the Yuletide, warned him against moving about freely on his own, the 35-year-old felt at home and saw no need for that. Standing well over 6ft and endowed with a massive and intimidating body build, only few mortals could match him in a physical brawl. But around 3pm on January 12, a handful of heavily armed young men wearing bullet-proof vests, who had laid ambush for him, pounced. He was returning home in company with two of his cousins after going to buy petrol and gas at a nearby filling station. The grief remains fresh for the family.
“The assailants came shooting sporadically in front of his house to scare people away. They later went to wait for him at the junction leading to his house. When they saw him, they ordered him to come down from his car. They accused him of being into illegal business. He quickly identified himself as US Army personnel and even showed them his service pistol. At that point they had collected his phones and that of our sisters, who were with him. They ordered the ladies to lie down in the car.
“It was after a while that my brother noticed they were assassins. He pleaded with them to spare his life that he was going to give them any amount they wanted. They refused and told him to go into the boot of their car. They drove out to a junction, close to a spot where caskets are produced and sold before shooting him on the head several times. His entire body was riddled with bullets,” she said.
Apart from sending shock waves down the spines of many residents of Umuduruorie and environs, the tragic incident has sadly changed the way the people live their lives today. The once serene and peaceful community has become a theatre of fear and apprehension.
“Everybody is still in shock. People are afraid to go out for too long. In fact these days, people run into their houses even before 6pm for fear of being attacked by criminals. Our village used to be a very lively place especially at this time of the year but the incident has spread fear and made the place look like a ghost town. A lot of people have moved to neighbouring towns at the moment,” she said.
Family members and all who knew Okebata closely described him as a man with a large heart. Often times, he was said to have sacrificed personal comfort to help people in need. According to Ndiukwu, he was on the verge of establishing a foundation to help the needy within and beyond his immediate native community when his life was cut short.
“Once, he saw a picture of me visiting the less privileged, he got across to me and told me that he would also love to donate to the needy and in fact establish a charity organisation when he came home for the Yuletide. We were all happy and looking forward to that moment before he was killed.
“Chuks liked helping people, he has assisted a lot of people in our community and even planned to do more this year before his life was cut short. His death is a big loss not just for us but for all those whose lives have been changed as a result of his assistance,” she said.
Days after his gruesome murder, a video, which was posted by the victim’s sister – Ada Mbaeri, and captioned: “Watch people and see what a hell my brother Chuks Okebata was going through with his wife before he was killed,” provided a new twist into the entire matter.
The video showing a verbal altercation between Okebata and his wife, Chinyere, known by some as Cyndy, before she eventually called the police on him, prompted many to accuse the woman of knowing something about his death.
In the footage, the visibly enraged and irritated woman asked Okebata to leave the house on several occasions while the victim could be heard protesting and insisting that he was not going to leave his house and children behind. In another recording, the children were seen crying while their father tried to console them, telling them he was leaving because he didn’t want to go to jail. Later, two white police officers were seen arriving the family home after the woman put a call across to them.
The post generated a lot of reaction from far and near. While many, on the heels of the footage, concluded that indeed Chinyere must know something about his death, dozens others dismissed it as a normal argument and misunderstanding between couples.
Rubbishing the allegations as baseless and malicious, the victim’s wife in a message to blogger – Amanda Chisom, said she knew nothing about her husband’s death and was deeply pained by his tragic demise.
“I am the wife of the man who was assassinated, and I am just distraught. I do not even know where to start but it is only right I tell my own side of the story. I am innocent, God is my witness that I did not kill my husband or the evil that my husband’s family is portraying me to be. My sister in-law posted that video to make me look evil but the part she did not tell anybody was that I was calling the police to save my life because he always beat me up and I was told to call the police whenever he started and that was exactly what I was doing, from the video you would see that I did not fight him or answer him. Should I have allowed him to kill me?
“We have been married for 13 years since I was 19, it has been beating upon beating, I have gone through surgeries because of beating he gave me. How can I kill my husband, we live together, till the day he left for Nigeria, I packed his things, how could I kill him. Who do I know to order a hit on the father of my children?  I have no interest in his properties as suggested after all we built everything together. God knows I am innocent. I have endured all these years through his beating and cheating and I did not leave or kill him, why would I do it now? All I ask is that I am left to mourn in peace and the killers found and prosecuted,” she said.
But contrary to claims by Mrs. Okebata that the marriage was intact and that she in fact packed his luggage on the day he was heading for Nigeria, Ndiukwu said that the two had been separated for more than three years following series of misunderstandings between them.
According to her, the marriage started experiencing cracks after the victim’s wife demanded that they move to another city and away from her in-laws. Soon claims of mistrust began, culminating finally in their eventual separation.
“Chuks died a sad man because he felt his wife betrayed him after all the love and care he gave to her,” the young lady revealed. “Chinyere was nobody when he married her from our area in Imo State but became suddenly wild after some years in the US. He couldn’t control her again and she didn’t want to see her in-laws anymore. In fact just to make peace reign between them, Chuks had to give in to her demands and rent another apartment away from his parents’ house for them to live. But when the problems became unbearable, the two of them had to separate.
“My brother never really recovered from the pain of that incident until he was killed. He was a loving and extremely nice person, I don’t know why anybody should end his life in such a cruel manner,” she said.
On the Facebook profile of the victim, his relationship status indicated that he was single while that of Chinyere neither indicated single nor married in the same section. Also, while only the photos of their two sons – Obinna and Chisom, were visible on the Facebook profile and albums of the deceased, that of his wife had a little girl in addition, suggesting something different. Several messages sent to the woman on Facebook to clarify this and also respond to a number of questions were yet to be answered as of the time of going to press.
However, Amarachi Anyanwu, another cousin of the late US Army personnel, told that she only knows about the two boys from the marriage. Like Ndiukwu, she confirmed that the pair had been separated for several years.
As investigations into the tragic killing continue by the Nigeria police, family members, relatives and friends of the victim have all called for the perpetrators to be brought to book. They say more than anything else, only that would heal the pains they currently endure.

Osinbajo To Lead Nigerian Government Delegation In Niger Delta Talks

At last, the Federal Government talks with Niger Delta stakeholders, including militants, who have been bombing oil assets to draw attention to challenges in the oil region, begin tomorrow.
The talks would see Vice President Yemi Osinbajo leading a high powered delegation of the Federal Government to visit some states in the Niger Delta. States to be visited are Delta, Bayelsa and Rivers.
Meanwhile, the leader of the Pan-Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), Chief Edwin Clark, said the visit was not a substitute for dialogue.
A statement from the Office of the Vice President, yesterday, stated that government was committed to an effective dialogue with Niger Delta leaders.
“In further demonstration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s readiness and determination to comprehensively address the Niger Delta situation, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, will be visiting a number of oil communities across some Niger Delta States starting on Monday, January 16, 2017, when he travels to Delta State”, the statement said.
“At a later date to be announced soon, the Vice President, Prof. Osinbajo would also be visiting Bayelsa and Rivers States.
“At these visits, the Vice President will lead high-level delegations of the Federal Government that will interact with leaders and representatives of the oil-producing communities in continuation of ongoing outreach efforts of the Buhari administration towards a long lasting and permanent resolution of the Niger Delta crisis.
“The Buhari presidency is fully committed to having an effective dialogue and positive engagement that will end the crisis in the oil-producing areas, and believes that these visits would further boost the confidence necessary for the attainment of peace and prosperity in the areas and the Nigerian nation in general”.
"We stand on dialogue"
Clark, last night, speaking on the development, said the PANDEF was not against the decision of President Muhammdu Buhari to send  Osinbajo to the Niger Delta to meet with the people and explore ways of resolving the crisis in the region.
The Niger Delta leader, who spoke to Sunday Vanguard on phone, said: “The visit is not a substitute for dialogue and it is not a question of personality conflict because there is no conflict between the Federal Government and PANDEF.”
He urged militants, who listened to the leaders of the region and suspended hostilities, to maintain the ceasefire.
“Nothing should be done to cause any distraction during the visit of the vice president to the Niger Delta. There should be no bombing by any militant group, that is the plea of PANDEF," Clark said.
“Few individuals may have made statements, which so many people found intolerable. Muhammadu Buhari is the President of the whole country and he made it clear in his new year message that his government was going to embrace dialogue in the resolution of the crisis. We, PANDEF, stand on dialogue too and have been waiting for him since we met him on November 1, 2016, we have no reason to believe that he is not open to dialogue and, moreover, dialogue is not one month or one year affair, it can be continuous.
“We cannot say that because one person made one statement, it, therefore, means that the President is against dialogue, but if after his new year message, he is sending his Vice President to Niger Delta to visit the hot spots, we welcome it.”
Clark, who cancelled his trip to Abuja, weekend, because of  Osinbajo’s visit to the region, went on: “I cannot be going to Abuja when he is coming here, I have cancelled my trip to wait and be around during his visit. I am in touch with Delta State governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, and the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr Ibe Kachikwu. PANDEF is well prepared for the VP’s visit. We have asked our people to receive the him, PANDEF is a body of monarchs, leaders and stakeholders of the coastal states of the Niger Delta. We have the youths, women,politicians, and entrepreneurs, name them in the body, it is not an APC or PDP group.
“PANDEF is going to play a leading role in the vice president  visit to Niger Delta, we are in support of the visit. It will enable us have further discussion with him on our request for dialogue with the Federal Government. The visit is not a substitute for dialogue. What is more important is that the Federal Government and the people are dialoguing on the way out with sincerity on both sides. Our youths are willing to listen to us and we have told them to let peace reign, while we pursue dialogue with the Federal Government.
“No one should have the impression that the vice president is coming to visit the youths that are bombing oil installations. He is coming to Gbaramatu kingdom and going to other parts of the region, where he will meet with everybody.”

23-point demand
Separately, the Urhobo ethnic nationality in  Delta State, yesterday, urged the Federal Government to dialogue with PANDEF. The position of the ethnic group is contained in a statement, entitled: “Urhobo position on Niger Delta Development Issues Versus Federal Government of Nigeria,” signed by the Urhobo Youth Leaders Association, UYLA, National President and Secretary, Messrs. Francis Arhiyor and Vincent Oyibode.
The group, which proposed a 23-point demand and 10-point dialogue issues, which it planned to hand over to PANDEF, stated: “Urhobo youths are in full support of PANDEF to negotiate with Federal Government to ensure sustainable peace in the region.”
It called for the immediate restructuring of the Amnesty Office to give equal opportunity to all ethnic nations in the Niger-Delta, adding: “We wish to quickly recommend that the security of the oil and gas facilities should be given to the youths of various ethnic nationalities in the Niger Delta.”
Dialogue issues
The 10-point dialogue issues suggested by the group include graduated increase in derivation from 13 per cent to 50 per cent over a five- year period; repeal and abrogation of all unjust and oppressive legislations, laws, policies that vest ownership and control of oil and gas resources in the Federal Legislature List in the 1999 Constitution as amended; and repeal and abrogation of all anti-federal and inequitable laws and policies related to the oil and gas industry such as pipelines, etc.
Others are repeal of the Land Use Act and return of all lands to communities, families, and individuals; repeal of the 1997 Inland Waterways Act that vests in the Federal Government the ownership of all rivers and waterways and their banks; review of oil bloc licenses to ensure majority equity ownership by Urhobo investors; the next review is due in 2017; passage of Petroleum Industry Bill into law by 2017; and minimum of 75 per cent of workforce in all oil and gas business in Urhobo land to be reserved for Urhobo indigenes and professionals.
UYLA also called for “relocation to Urhobo land of the head offices of all oil and gas companies doing business in Urhobo area, especially NPDC now in Benin to be relocated to Ughelli and Pan-Ocean Petroleum Corporation to be relocated to Oghara; compensation and rehabilitation via affirmative actions of the families of all the 1,000 persons, who perished in the October, 1998, pipeline fire in Idjerhe (Jesse) near Sapele.
Energy
Other demands are as follows: “An MOU to guarantee the step down of adequate energy/electricity generated in the gas turbines in Delta Power Station (Ughelli) and Ogorode Power Station (Sapele) to supply subsidized electricity for all communities and Local Government Areas in Urhobo Land. This type of Affirmation Action is to transform the economic, environment and make it juicy and attractive to investors in small- medium- and large-scale enterprises. Similar policies have been run by Shell and other MNOs in places like Shetland (Scotland). 
“MOU with Utorogu Gas Plant, the biggest in West Africa, for supply of subsidized and uninterrupted electricity to all communities in Ughelli South and Udu Local Government Areas,    which jointly host the facility. It is cruel and oppressive on the part of the Nigeria Gas Company that the gas processed in Utorogu is piped through the Escravos-Lagos gas grid to industries in Ogun and Lagos State in Nigeria and thence to the Republic of Benin, Togo, and Ghana yet the immediate host communities have not had steady electricity supply since 1989 when the facility was opened. This injustice has to stop.

Ports and waterways
“Construction of Okwagbe Inland Port approved by the Federal Ministry of Transport several years ago; return of Sapele Port to civil use by taking it over from the Navy, development of Warri Port to boost maritime business; dredging of Escravos Bar to admit larger ocean liners to Delta ports of Warri, Burutu, Sapele and Koko. The Escravos Bar facility was built in the early 1960s by the government of the First Republic, thanks to the patriotism of Chief Festus Okotie-Eboh, the then Minister of Finance.
“Clean-up and restoration of silted and weed-choked rivers and waterways in Urhobo Land, especially Ethiope River, Warri River, Forcados River, Owahwa-Esaba River, Egiegi-Oleri Creek, Okpare-Ughelli Creek, Eghwu-Arhavwarian River, Gbaregolor- Okwuama Creek, Ogunu-Ughoton-Sapele Creek.

Industry and agriculture
“A  buy-back or genuine privatization of Delta Steel Company (DSC), Ovwain-Aladja to revamp economic activity and generate employment, saying: “About 80 ancillary industries were planned with DSC and their location/siting was to spread from the DSC area to Patani along the River Niger. This plan of multiple enterprises should now be implemented in order to stimulate economic recovery in the Western Niger Delta.
“Setting up of Central Bank of Nigerian (CBN) and Bank of Industries (BoI), a stimulus Fund to support investment in small and medium scale enterprises in Urhobo Land to absorb thousands of unemployed persons and create innovation and inventions.”
Also in their list is: “Special Federal Stimulus Fund for agriculture to boost production of food-crops such as cassava, plantain, sweet potato, fisheries, and rice as well as cash/industrial crops such as palm, raphia palm, coconut, mango, orange, Ogbono,  kola nut, etc.
“Upgrading of the Otegbo sub-station of the Nigerian Institute for Oil Palm Research in Ughelli South LGA to a full-fledged research institute to support agriculture research and industrial production of oil palm and rafia palm for palm produce, bottled palm wine, yeast, ethanol and other derivatives”.

Highways and railways

“They dualisation of Sapele-Eku-Abraka-Agbor Federal Road, the oldest motorway in southern Nigeria, dualisation of Effurun-Eku federal road; construction of Egini-Esaba-Ophorigbala- Gbekebor-Burutu federal highway to link Udu, Ughelli South and Burutu LGAs to the Warri-Effurun economic axis; construction of Otor-Udu-Oghior-Okolor Inland, Ogbe-Udu-Okolor Waterside road; dualisation of Ughelli-Okpara-Otu-Jeremi- Okwagbe-Egbo-Ide road, dualisation of Ekakpamre-Otor-Udu-Egini- Ovwian road; and dualisation of Ughelli-Agbarha- Otor-Orogun- Sanubi road”.
