Obiora CJ Ezechukwu, the chairman, All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, Aguata LGA, hailed the Anambra State government over projects accomplished in Aguata, saying the administration impacted positively on lives of the people Aguata.
Reflecting on Governor Willie Obiano’s one year in office in his second tenure, Ezechukwu noted that Anambra was far more developed than some neighbouring states.
“The governor Willie Obiano has done so well in Aguata. His good works are too numerous to be counted.
“If you go to each community in Aguata, you will see his landmark achievements through the `N20 million Community Choose Your Project Initiative.’
“In Achina, my community, we had it rough trying to complete the construction of a Town Hall.
“We struggled for many years and only managed to erect only the structures at the skeletal level, until we received the first N20million from Anambra State Government.’’
According to Ezechukwu, It is part of the funds that Achina used to complete the Town Hall, which was hitherto stalled.
“We used the remaining amount to build a Shopping Mall at Oye Achina Motor Park. The second tranche of N20million was also used in sitting a gigantic 32-shop building at Oye Achina. The project is there for all to see.’’
“Nkpologwu community used their first N20 million to build standard Health Centre with private wards, while the second phase was used to build an International Market on the Ekwulobia-Uga Express Road.
“Ekwulobia on the other hand built a gigantic Skills Acquisition Centre at the Ekwulobia Stadium.
“Ezinifite built a market with funds, while Aguluezechukwu built a market with the first phase and Town Hall with the second and Ora-eri used theirs for a Town Hall. This is how it has been replicated in all communities within Aguata.
“There is a road under construction at Ora-eri now, it spans Akwaeze-Igboukwu and through the Post Office; it has been asphalted up to St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Ora-eri.
“There is also a road being constructed at Ekwulobia. It runs from Isuofia through General Hospital and to terminate at Eke Ekwulobia.’’
Ezechukwu noted that apart from those recent roads under construction, there were other roads that the government had completed in the past. “So, the government has done very well.’’
He said that currently Ekwulobia and Uga now have street lighting. “they are for security purposes. Street lights help to ward off robbers at nights. This has brought night life to the areas.’’
He urged incoming legislators to strive to embrace government programmes, “if a government has laudable programmes, it is expected that the legislators will support with appropriate laws that will help government to work to the benefit of the masses.
“The lawmakers should eschew bitterness and rancour and be selfless in their services to the people by cooperating with the government that wishes to work.’’
On what more the people expect from the administration over the next three years?
“It is expected that the government will embark on massive projects by building in all communities,’’ Ezechukwu said.
“This is because so many parties want to take over in Anambra State but what has waded them off is remarkable projects accomplished under the APGA government of Gov. Obiano.
“Government must not relent in delivering services to Ndi Anambra; massive road projects should resume since they were temporarily stopped because of rains. Work should commence on every project that was put on hold.
“It is expected that jobs to be done, should surpass those previously accomplished to make it possible for another APGA government to succeed the current administration when the time comes.’’
He added: “APGA is a Mass Movement of people hinged on Igbo ideology. It is more than a political party. Ndi Igbo are very industrious people and APGA is working hard to ensure that Ndi Igbo will get their fair share.’’
He urged the people of Anambra to maintain their faith in APGA.
