LG Poll: Chairmanship hopeful targets 5-point agenda via IGR
Mr. Andrew Megbele fielding questions from Our Senior Correspondent

As expectations run high ahead of the forthcoming local government election in Delta State, a Chairmanship hopeful in Warri South Local Government, Mr. Andrew Moyoritse Megbele says if given the mandate by people of Warri South, his administration will focus on a 5-point agenda of education, security, agriculture, primary healthcare and infrastructural development through internally generated revenue, IGR.

Mr. Andrew Megbele, son of a former Delta State House of Assembly Speaker and Aide to Chief Joseph Otumara told Our Senior Correspondent Thursday August 10 during a exclusive chat that he will bring governance closer to people of the grassroots.

While assuring that his administration will strive to alleviate poverty and sufferings of the down-trodden through investment in agriculture in-line with Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s SMART agenda, Mr. Megbele noted that agro allied enterprises will be created to tackle youth unemployment.

According to him, despite the limited resources accruing to the State and Local Governments from FAAC, he will ensure that the street lights in Warri function optimally by partnering with Benin Electricity Distribution Company, BEDC.

He promised that if elected Chairman of Warri South, his administration will embark on the repair of pot holes on roads in Warri as well as construct access roads that are within the purview of the council within 6 months.

While expressing optimism that he will emerge Warri South PDP candidate in the impending poll, he canvassed for support of people of Warri South Local Government Area, to enable him actualize his ambition.
