Published

on

AN ANAMBRA-BASED  Non-Governmental Organisation, Great  Soludo  Patriots,  has made a passionate  appeal to the  federal  government  to  integrate the  state  into the  mainstream  of an oil-producing state  to  enable  it  benefit  optimally from the 13th  oil derivation  funds  like  every other  oil-producing states in the country.

        The   Director  General of the  nongovernmental organisation,  Obiajulu  Nwoye, made  the  appeal during a function  organised by the  organisation  at the  headquarters  of Oyi  Local Government  Area, Nteje, Anambra State.

   Comrade  Nwoye  who  recalled  that the   Anambra State  Orient  Petroleum  PlC, which  made  Anambra  an oil  producing state,  was  commissioned  by the  former  president of the  country, Goodluck Jonathan,  called  on the senators and the members of House of Representatives from Anambra State  to  join forces  with  Governor  Willie  Obiano in  ensuring  the integration of the  state  into the mainstream  of  an  oil-producing state in the  country.

      While  commending  Governor  Obiano  on the  on-gong massive  construction  work on the  bridge which links Nzam  and  Mmiata  Anam in Anambra  West  Local Government  Area, Nwoye said  that  the  bridge when  completed,  would no  doubt  enhance  the  achievement  of the  National Food  Security Projects of the  federal  government in the  state since most of the  communities in the  area  are  predominantly  farmers.

      The  NGO  director general, who  noted that  Governor Obiano had through  his  developmental projects  which  scattered all over the  state, took the  state to a pride  of the  nation, equally appealed to the  governor  to  work towards constructing the  road which links Awka  North  and  Ayamelum  Local  Government  Areas  through  Oba-Ofemili with a bridge on the Ezu river, stressing  that  linking up  the  two  local  government  areas  who  are  also  agrarian, would drastically boost  the  state  economic base.

       In his  remarks while  receiving the  leadership  of the  organisation, who  called  on him  on arrival, the  Transition  Committee Chairman  of  Oyi  Local  Government  Area, Dr  Nnamdi Nwadiogbu, expressed satisfaction with the  well -articulated  programmes of the  organisation, pointing out that the  state  needs a  person  with  impeccable  character and  unquestionable  qualifications  that  would  take over from Governor  Obiano to entrench spirit of continuity in the ongoing massive development in the  state.
