Posted on by admin

ugwuanyiGovernor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has called on residents of
the state not to erect structures on waterways to avoid the incidence
of flood or erosion caused by blockage of the drainage system.
Governor Ugwuanyi made the call while inspecting the erosion site
along Okigwe old federal road by Ugwuleshi Community in Awgu Local
Government Area of the state, which washed out the road culvert
because of blockage of the drainage caused by illegal erection of
fences down the stream.
The governor who frowned at the cause of the erosion and the threat it
has posed to the people of the community and its environs, promised
that his administration would in spite of the present economic
challenges, reconstruct the culvert not minding that it is a federal
government project.
He told the people of the area to continue to support and offer
special prayers for the progress of the state and the country in
general, assuring them that he was committed to his campaign promises
to advance good governance in the state.
In his response, the Transition Chairman of Awgu Local Government
Area, Hon. Stanley Okeke, on behalf of the people of the council
thanked the governor for his prompt visit and his promise to intervene
on the challenges being faced by the people of the area as a result of
the erosion.
He said that the governor had always come to their rescue whenever
they were in difficulties, assuring him of their prayers and support
at all times.
Other dignitaries at the site include, the member representing Awgu
South in the State House of Assembly, Hon. Nelson Uduji, Commissioner
for Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Patrick Ikpenwa, Commissioner for
Information, Mr. Godwin Udughele, among others.
