Furthermore, the ONELGA chairman, Amb. Victor Odili commissioned a six classroom block and handed it over to the leadership of Mgbede community.
The ONELGA Chief Executive equally commissioned water projects at Okpurukpu-Ali Community, Elieta Community, Akabuka Community and Oborhia Community in Omoku town, as ways of meeting the water needs of the people.
Our correspondent gathered that the council chairman had earlier trained over sixty youths in different skills and empowered them with starter packs to start their own businesses.
Speaking at the Occasion, Chairman of Ogba-Egbema-Egbema LGA, Ifeanyichukwu Victor Odili said his vision in the governance of ONELGA is to meet the people at their various points of needs.
Victor Odili, who noted that he was not interested in noise making, said he believes in action.
“I believe in action, I believe in what people can see and feel the impact, I believe it is our duty as a government to execute projects and hand them over to the communities, which is what we are doing here today”.
Amb. Victor Odili noted that his administration has a lot more projects to commission in the coming months.
The executive chairman of ONELGA also disclosed that he will flag off Omoku International Market Project soon, adding that it will be completed in ten months time.
Meanwhile, the leadership of the various Community Development Committees and stakeholders in the area have commended the ONELGA chairman for executing projects that have direct impacts on the lives of the people.
Mr James Isinka, Secretary of Mgbede Community in Egbema zone said the people of Egbema have not had it so good with local government administrations in recent time.
He expressed satisfaction and gladness with Ambassador Ifeanyi Odili for executing a six classroom building with modern facilities, a pipe borne water and a corpers’s lodge in the area and congratulated him on his two years anniversary.
On his part, Paramount Ruler of the Mgbede Clan, HRH, Chadwick Ogor said he was
overwhelmed with joy over the completion of the projects, saying that
he doubted the possibility of completing the projects initially.
Also speaking, President General of Ndoni Community, Chief Albert Ajie applauded the chairman for the building of a one storey structure to accommodate corps members posted to the area.
He noted that such a giant stride by Ifranyi Odili marked the end of academic backwardness occasioned by refusal of Corpers to the area to stay and carried their assignments, due to lack of accommodation.
In Okpurukpu-Ali community, the CDC chairman, Goodluck Ugwor said the water project marks a new beginning in the history of the community.
He said the community has lacked drinking water for a long time and thanked Amb. Odili for also approving a generating set to the community, in view of power failure.
