An Ijaw man of Southern Ijaw extraction of Bayelsa state, one Egberbin Dinakpo Lucky, has called on minister of transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, to use his good office to facilitate development to Southern Ijaw federal constituency of the state.
His call followed a post made by Amaechi on facebook where he showcased photos of ongoing work at the federal university of transportation at Daura, the country home of President Muhammadu Buhari in Katsina state, Northern Nigeria.
