ABOUT N43 million has been disbursed to nine communities

in six Local Government Areas (LGA) of Anambra state Community and Social Development Agency.

  The disbursement was made under the auspices of Anambra State Community and Social Development Agency (ASCSDA) in Awka for rural development in specific micro projects.

  Communities that benefitted from the disbursement are Uli in Ihiala LGA, Ossomala and Atani in Ogbaru LGA, and Ndiukwenu, Orumba North LGA.

  Others include Ikem-Ivite in Anambra East LGA, Ogbunka and Umuomaku in Orumba South LGA and Anaku as well as Ifite-Ogwari, Ayamelum LGA.

  Signing the financial agreement paper, with each of the communities, General Manager of ASCSDA, Chudi Mojekwu said the disbursement represents 50 percent of the first tranche of total cost of their chosen projects.

  According to Mojekwu, another phase in which more communities will be captured under the scheme kicks off in October.

  He therefore urged beneficiaries to reciprocate Gov. Willie Obaino’s gesture by putting the projects to maximum use, adding that their chance of benefiting in subsequent phases depends on their performance on the present.

  This, Mojekwu emphasised, involves engaging experts and sticking to approved specifications to expedite action and deliver the projects on record time.

  Earlier in a remark, Operations Manager of ASCSDA , Uche Nwizugbo, stated that sustainability plan hangs on the town unions, which she charged to protect the environment while executing the project to prevent abuse.

  Dignitaries at the event include traditional rulers, presidents-general, community project management committee chairmen and secretaries in attendance.

  Speaking in a vote of thanks, while pledging to justify Gov. Obiano’s confidence in them, President-General of Ikem-Ivite, Prof. Charles Nwadigwe assured of successful implementation of the projects and their maintenance as well as security in benefitting communities.
