Commuters frustrated by the congestion at the Nembe/ Bonny Waterside have cried out for help.
Our reporter who visited the area recently came back with the report that the motor road is barely passable as cars and pedestrians jostle for the narrow space, crashing into each other, more so as vehicle users take the liberty to park their vehicles at will, thereby compounding the agony of the road users.
Reacting to this situation, a prominent chief of Nembe- Bassambiri, Chief Efere, said the situation is becoming unbearable and called on the authority of the waterside to correct the ugly trend.
Responding to the sad and ugly situation, a business mogul in the waterside who is also a chief of Nembe-Bassambiri, Chief Dienegha, stressed that the military men posted to the waterside to keep the place in order are not doing their real work.
According to Chief Dienegha, the military men instead of stopping those who are fond of parking their vehicles by the road side to cause congestion were busy collecting money from people they perceived offending their personal laws.
Chief Dienegha frowned at the ugly trend and cautioned the military men to be of good behavior as they handle federal government guns in their hands and so should live up to the occasion of maintaining orderliness in a simple situation like congestion of road.
Both chiefs condemned the ugly trend at the waterside while praying for sanity to return to the road.
The Nembe Bonny watersides motor road was not easily and freely accessible at the time our reporter visited the area as vehicles are seen parked at the roadsides, causing serious congestion for other users of the road.
The Nembe-Bonny watersides motor road is a very busy road as travelers from both Nembe, Bonny, Bille and other communities do use it to bring their goods to the Creek road market. ###
