Chief Eni-Uduma Chima
Chief Eni-Uduma Chima, Executive chairman of Afikpo South local government area of Ebonyi has reiterated commitment toward completion of projects started in his first tenure.
Chima stated this in an interview with our correspondent on Wednesday at Ekoli-Edda in Afikpo South LGA of Ebonyi.
He said that he would use the second term administration to rap-up all existing projects embarked during the first term and do more capital projects.
Chima was sworn-in for a second term in office after winning a reelection at the Ebonyi LGA election held in Aug 29.
He said that leadership was all about ability to promote good governance, trust and accountability.
The LG boss who was a two – time state lawmaker in the Ebonyi State House of Assembly noted that he was committed to the infrastructural development of the grassroots.
He harped on completion of all ongoing capital projects especially the #1billion 5.6 Ekoli/Okagbuo road project initiated in his first term and others yet to be completed before the end of the first term administration.
He said: “We are imitating our leader, the governor of the state, Chief Dave Umahi. You can agree with me that he is doing more projects in his second tenure than in the first tenure.
” In this second tenure, we are going to aim at rapping up all the projects we are having in our hands, especially the capital projects, like the Ekoli/Okagbuo road which is 5.6 kilometres.”
Chima said that the overwhelming turnout of voters in the area during the just concluded election was due to their appreciation of Gov Umahi’s developmental strides in both human and infrastructural development.
“Our people are very appreciative of the governor’s developmental strides in the area especially in road infrastructure.
“Concrete road pavements have been going on from Amangwu; Owutu, Itim, Igbara, Ebouwana communities and up to the hill which is the beginning of Ekoli community.
“The people of Ekoli are already appreciating the governor eventhough the road construction has not passed through the area but they are already snapping and posting it to facebook,” he said.
