They bemoaned the poor condition of Ohwekwe Primary School, the sole school in the neighborhood.

They were primarily farmers who claimed that because a river had engulfed the entrance to the hamlet from the Elume axis, it had become difficult to transport produce to the market.

Glory Speaking on behalf of the community, Michael Asiughwure, President/Founder of Royal Diadem Apostolic Church in Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area, claimed that Okuoke was the sole community with unpaved roads since past governments disregarded it.

Coming to this town, you can observe a large body of water that resembles a river. It would be awful to get into the lake now that it was raining, he continued.

He pleaded with Governor Sheriff Oborevwori to assist the locals.

“We actually cast our ballots for them in the elections. I went there personally to speak with them in hopes that they would help the cause so that we could attract the public’s attention.

“There is no road and no basic school. Both of the community’s entrance roads—the one leading to Warri Road and this one—are completely encircled by the river. Many of the young people in this area are begging for jobs. There are numerous areas where the government can be of assistance to us.

Additionally, Asiughwure advised the residents of Okuoke Community to unite and pray for the advancement of their country.

Aligba Solomon Ukohoro, the councilor who represents the residents of DSIEC Ward 16, Elume INEC Ward 10, in the Sapele Local Government Council, expressed regret over the condition of the road in an interview with the Daily Post.

It’s beyond my personal control because there is no local government autonomy, he claimed. Therefore, they are powerless to affect the route in any way. They had done what little they could.

Additionally, he urged the federal, state, and municipal governments to keep Okuoke in mind when planning future development, particularly in terms of infrastructure and human resources. He said that the neighborhood health center is operational.
