Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has disclosed plans to commence the execution of one project in every political ward of the state as part of his ‘one ward, one project initiative’.
Ikpeazu gave the hint during a meeting with the executive chairmen of the 17 local government areas of the state and councillors at the Michael Okpara Auditorium Umuahia.
He directed councillors of each ward to articulate and submit, through their respective Leaders of Council, one project that is dear to the hearts of the people of his ward.
This was announced in a release issued to newsmen by Onyebuchi Ememanka, the Chief Press Secretary to the Abia Governor in Umuahia, on Thursday.
According to the Governor, the council leaders are to liaise with the executive chairmen to reach his office with the list not later than two weeks for immediate action.
Ikpeazu charged the chairmen to work in synergy with their deputies and councillors for greater development in their areas.
The State Chief Executive further enjoined them to take the issue of security seriously by holding monthly security meetings that will involve traditional rulers, heads of security agencies in their domains and selected stakeholders.
Governor Ikpeazu also implored them to sensitize and mobilize them to participate actively in the ongoing continuous voters registration exercise.
