…OYF reiterate altimatum to FG.

Bearly two days after Ogoni Youth Federation (OYF) staged a warning protest on the Aleto Bridge, Ogoni section of the East West Road and gave the Federal Government 14-days Altimatum to mobilize contractors handling the road to site to reconstruct the entire stretch of the road or face mother of all protest, a section of the bridge has collapsed.

The President-General of OYF, Comrade Legborsi Yamaabana who visited the collapsed bridge today said the Ogoni axis of the East West road where the bridge is located is a major route to the economic hub of the nation, but regrettably, the road has remained in a deplorable state and has only become a death trap that has terminated the lives of innocent Ogonis and other commuters.

Yamaabana used the ugly incident to reiterate the subsisting 14-days Altimatum that the Ogoni youths gave to the Federal Government to mobilize contractors to the road to completely reconstruct the it, he noted that if the Government fail to heed the call after the 14-days, Ogoni Youth Federation would be left with no option but to mobilize Ogoni people and friends of Ogoni across the Niger Delta and embark on mother of all protest, such that all economic activities in the area will be shut down.
