Twenty-five coastal communities in Delta are to benefit from the State Employment and Expenditure for Result (SEEFOR) project, being executed under Fadama 111 programme.
The Communication Officer, Fadama III project in Delta, Mr Donald Ojobo, stated this in Asaba in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria.
Ojobo said that the benefiting communities were selected from five local government areas, pointing out that additional 20 communities from the area would also benefit later.
He listed the five coastal local government areas to benefit from the intervention project as Bomadi, Burutu, Udu, Warri South and Warri South.
He said that 20 of the 25 local government areas in the state had already benefited.
The communication officer said that the communities were selected through an approach that involved formal expression of interest.
He said that SEEFOR project had provided an opportunity for the local government areas to benefit from Fadama III projects in the state.
Ojobo said that 20 facilitators had been trained and equipped with working materials for the project, adding that sensitisation of the communities had commenced.
He said that as soon as the sensitisation was concluded, the facilitators would assist the communities to fashion out development plans before funding.
