|The Otukpo-Ugbokolo-Otukpa road|
One of the Headlines in the debut edition of DAYBREAK Newspaper (in the pipeline) reads “Development In Idomaland: An Illusion Or Reality?”
Our Correspondents, Dan Atayi Edache, Sam Ogenyi and others have be sent to carry out a wholistic review of all sorts of developments vis-a-vis the spate of underdevelopment in Idomaland.
At the course of their research, divergent opinions were collated. Some say with developments like National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Joy FM, Otobi Dam, renovation of Otukpo-Adoka-Oweto road, (all in Otukpo) as well as the employment of Idoma youths into Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, Nigeria Police Force, Nigeria Immigration Service, Nigeria Prisons Service, etc are determinants of the rate of development recorded in Idomaland in recent times .
Other school of thought holds that it is an illusion with negative developments - like the dilapidated infrastructures (roads, rice mill, burnt bricks, etc); lack of pipe borne water; skewed Federal presence; non availability of University or Federal Institutions of higher learning in the land; etc.
Consequently, we seek your germane opinion on the development or underdevelopment of Idomaland. Good comments shall be published in the maiden edition of our paper.
Such comments shall only be entertained if they are constructively written and in not more than 150 words, with the full names and address of the commentators boldly written on top, as they would prefer it appear on the Newspaper.
Our readers/fans shall be contacted when the edition is published.
