The philanthropist however appealed to the state government to remember his community in the scheme of things, especially on the infrastructural developments in construction of Oko-Ndiowu- Ufuma-Akpu-Ajalli road, which he described as one of the key roads that would change the fortunes of the town.

“The road was first awarded under the late Governor Chinwoke Mbadinuju administration and was abandoned, re-awarded again under the immediate past administration in the state, and was able to do some parts of the drainage works.

“Unfortunately, the drainage work is now under the threat of erosion across the entire length of the road. But the road, if completed by the Governor, will explode the economic fortunes of the agrarian communities in Agbata – Ndiowu, Aboh Ihuana among others as demand will meet supply, there by generating economic prosperity,” he added.
