Orji flags off N250m rural road at Ikwuano, promises health centre

www.odogwublog.com reports that Senator Theodore Orji representing Abia Central district Thursday, flagged off about five kilometer Umuariaga Oboro ring road in Ikwuano Local Government Area.

The rural road when completed will also serve as a link between Ikwuano, Ibeku and Bende communities.

The ring road according to the Senator is estimated at N250 million  adding that it will be asphalted with drainage.
  
Speaking during the event, Orji said he decided to fix the road  because of its economic importance to the communities in the area, saying it will not only make for easy accessibility but also boost farming and economic activities in the affected rural communities.

He commended the people of Umuariaga community for their continued support to him and promised to build a health centre for them to facilitate easy access to  health care services.

The former Governor also promised to sink five new water bore holes in Ikwuano before the end of 2018 to ameliorate the water needs of the people,   while enjoining community leaders in the area to agree on central locations for the projects.

He also said he was making more efforts in synergy with the House of Representative member from the constituency,  Hon. Sam Onuigbo to ensure  more roads in  the district were captured in the federal budget to lessen the burden on the state.

Senator Orji urged the people to remain committed in their support for the Peoples Democratic Party, saying it is the only party where the future of Nigerians and Ndigbo in particular are guaranteed.

He further said Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu's many developmental strides had vindicated him ( Orji) for his support for power shift to Abia South in 2015 in the spirit of equity and fair distribution of political offices in the state. 

Earlier in his remarks, the President General of the community, Pastor Chukwuma Alamba, thanked Senator Orji for attracting the road project, saying that bad road has been a major challenge of the university community.

He had also pleaded with the senator to help the community with a healthcare centre considering its high population density due to the continued influx of students of Michael Okpara University of Agriculture domiciled in the area.
