Umahi kicks off N1.2bn water, rural electrification projects
Speaking at the ceremony in Amagu Ishiagu, Ivo Local Government Area, the governor disclosed that the project, conceived when he was a deputy governor, was a Federal Government-assisted project.
Umahi, who commended Senator Anyim Pius Anyim for his contributions towards the realisation of the water project, said:
“We requested for assistance from the Federal Government for this Ivo Water Project. It was supposed to be for Ishiagu alone, but we decided to expand it to reach Akaeze community and also get to our model rice mill in Oso Edda.”
He said that 70 per cent of the money needed to complete the project was ready, stressing that the counterpart funding from the Federal Government was also available with the state government.
Umahi, who used the occasion to thank the people for their support during the last governorship election, assured them of the provision of roads and electricity.
