Uduaghan gave the warning at the Annual Thanksgiving Service of the Iwere Kingdom held at the Foursquare Gospel Church in the Palace of the Olu of Warri.

He described contractors who failed to execute government projects within the specified time as “wrong messengers of government who do not want the people to benefit from the dividends of democracy’’.

Governor Uduaghan said it was government’s responsibility to ensure that the people enjoyed a decent living standard through the provision of adequate infrastructure.

“We hold a position of responsibility to improve the people`s standard of living. The problem is that we send a message and the messenger delivers it wrongly.

“Some say no government project has been awarded or executed in their area. But, I can tell you that we have awarded so many contracts which have neither been half-done nor completely abandoned.

“Henceforth, anyone who stops the people from benefiting from my administration will account for it,’’ he charged

That was not all, in view of the festive season where transporters increase fares arbitrarily, Uduaghan has warned operators of the Delta City Bus against overcharging passengers.

“The bus fares are subsidised by 50 per cent and the buses fitted with air conditioners for the benefit of the people.

“I wonder why people will be delighted in subjecting their neighbours to so much difficulty,’’ he stated

Also at the occasion, the President, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Ayo Oritsejafor, prayed for the Itsekiri people and urged them to remain steadfast in the Lord.

In his sermon, Rev. Lucky Eruebi of the Church of God Mission, Effurun, focused on the importance of thanksgiving at all times.

“Giving thanks to the Lord has a way of moving God to do more for people,’’ he said.
