Guard government projects jealously, lawmaker charges constituents Ogbonnaya Ikokwu, Umuahia


A lawmaker, Chief Sam Onuigbo, has charged  communities in his constituency to protect Federal Government’s projects cited in their areas.

Onuigbo, member representing Ikwuano/Umuahia North/South Federal Constituency made this charge while commissioning some projects he facilitated in his constituency.

He also advised his constituents to go beyond political party sentiment and choose a leader that would give them quality representation.

He charged Nigerians to elect their leaders based on track records and performance rather than political party affliation.

Onuigbo, said the projects he attracted cut across party divide, adding that he derived personal satisfaction from doing what is best for his people.

He said it was important for the beneficiaries of such projects to have a change of attitude and maintain them because the projects belong to them.

He added that the projects being commissioned were outcome of his campaign promises to his people.

He said, “What I can assure our people is that between now and 2023, we will witness an unprecedented level of human and infrastructure development".

Onuigbo said that he was not a man to make promises, but was all about leaving an indelible mark on the people in the end.

The lawmaker commissioned five projects in three local government areas in his constituency.

The projects include 300KVA transformer and solar-powered street lights at Ndoro and a block of three classrooms at Umuajata Primary School, Olokoro in Ikwuano and Umuahia South Local Government Areas respectively.

Others are a block of three classrooms at Nsirimo Central School, Ubakala and 300KVA transformer at Umuagungloori, Afugiri in Umuahia South and Umuahia North council areas, respectively.

Prominent indigenes of the communities who were present to witness the commissioning, thanked the lawmaker for facilitating the projects to their areas.

Chief Michael Iroh, a community leader at Nsirimo who expressed gratitude to Onuigbo prayed God to  guard and guide him.

According to Iroh, when he started this project, we were not in the same party, but today we are. 

Mrs Gold Iheonunaka, Women Leader of Umuagungolori, Afugiri thanked him for restoring light in their community, after about five months power outage due to a faulty transformer.
