He lamented the level of decaying infrastructures built by the former Governor of Bendel State, Professor Ambrose Folorunso Ali which he claimed has been abandoned for years.

The Onojie maintained that several promises have been made but not fulfilled including the recent administration of Governor Godwin Obaseki who promised during his second tenure electioneering campaign in 2019, to build access roads, reconstruct dilapidated school buildings and healthcare centers as well as provide network services for the people.

He argued that, after the electioneering campaign Promises of Governor Godwin Obaseki, nothing significant has changed in the locality.

He regretted that the government has neglected them despite promises made to provide Basic infrastructure.

Another concerned citizen, Godwin OVU who has become weary revealed that there were speculated plans by the state government to move the Eguare Urohi Secondary School built in 1980 by Ambrose Ali to another community.

A development, he said will further deepen the frustration being undergone by the community.

Although the Governor may have tried to make some advancements to close the gap in some areas of the state, the people of the Eguare Urohi Community are not happy that they have not been captured in part or whole of the stride.

The governor is not the only one guilty of the promises, some representatives who are of the Esan West constituency have not done enough to influence the development of their constituents.

The Speaker, Edo State House of Assembly Rt. Hon. Marcus Onobun who is now seeking to represent his constituents in the Lower Chambers of the National Assembly Under the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP was said to have promised to intervene.

But his promises have not manifested as time is fast tickling with hope fading away.
