Prince Ned Nwoko was a member of the lower National Assembly from 1999-2003. He represented Aniocha North/south and Oshimili North/south Federal constituency in Delta state. After his tenure at the green chambers, Prince Nwoko retired to his business empire and law firm based in the United Kingdom.

Frequent travellers across different parts of Nigeria would have noted the dilapidated state of the federal roads.

In this light, Prince Ned Nwoko, has personally mobilised private resources to rehabilitate the failed portions of the Onicha-Ugbo/Idumuje-Ugboko Delta state Road leading into Edo State, Kogi State and Abuja.

Happenings gathered that the road had become a vital short-cut for travelers from the South-east to the North due to the bad condition of other alternative roads. Heavy rains in recent months have also wrecked more havoc on the single-lane road reconstructed few years ago by the Niger Delta Development commission (NDDC). The road has become the link to towns along its path including Onicha Ugbo-Idumuje Ugboko- Ewohimi towards the federal capital territory of Abuja.

The failed sections of the road exposed commuters to travel delays and other hardships, including attacks by hoodlums operating on the Onicha Ugbo- Idumuje Ugboko axis.

A source revealed that the road should be ready in six weeks time so that commuters can have a hitch free trip plying the roads.

The Delta state politician studied law at the university of Keele, Staffordshire, Uk.
