Taking to his Facebook page to share photos of Akarai Etiti Community Primary School, West said the school is the only educational facility in Ndokwa East local government.
He said the government had neglected Ndokwa East despite the fact that it is one of the major oil-producing local government areas in the state.
In his words:
"This is despite the state being one of the top three oil-rich states in the country and Ndokwa East LGA a major oil producing Local government area in Delta state Nigeria."
They also lack potable water supply
West said the only source of water supply to the people of the local government is dirty pond water.
According to West, Ndokwa East LG does not have a good road network the people can enjoy.

"We therefore want to solicit the monetary support of the general public and kind hearted Nigerians to fund our Educational and water projects."

"You can lend your voice by sharing until this post get to the necessary authorities. The people living in this community are humans like you that have be denied access to basic social amenities..
"Many thanks to those who have already reposted."
