Ide Isiagu lauds Obiano’s giant strides



A COMMUNITY in Isiagu, Awka South Local Government Area of Anambra State, Chief Ben N. Ifeatu (Ide Isiagu), has lauded Governor Willie Obiano for the massive facelift his administration has given to Awka capital territory and other urban cities and rural areas in the state.

  Ide Ifeatu, former chairman of the old Awka LGA, made the commendation while appraising the unprecedented achievements of the incumbent administration, especially in terms of sustained security and widespread grassroots’ development through the ‘Community Choose Your Project’ initiative.

  He noted that N40million each had been disbursed to all the 179 communities across the state under the first and second phases of the scheme with the third phase almost taking off to the delight of the masses.

  He also applauded the on-going construction of an ultra-modern roundabout at Agulu-Ekwulobia Road Junction, near the Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia, which has now reached advanced stage of completion.

  The community leader remarked that the Obiano’s era had recorded tremendous strides in the infrastructural advancement of the state, recounting the ‘Operation Light Up Anambra State’ which resulted in the provision of massive street lights covering almost the entire landscape of the state, thereby promoting tight security, tourism and night life throughout the state.

  He requested that the street light project be extended to Isiagu and Umuawulu communities, being part of the Awka capital territory.

  According to Chief Ifeatu, “the generality of ndi Anambra at home and diaspora will forever remember Governor Obiano as the most committed and foresighted leader, who emancipated the entire hinterland through egalitarian distribution of dividends of democracy with impressive people-oriented policies and programmes aimed at taking the state to an enviable pedestal.”
