Uzodinma Moves To Fulfill Promise To Owerri West, Others
… Flags Off-road Construction Today
… House Member Hails Govt
Imo State Governor, senator Hope Uzodinma has moved to fulfill the promise he made to the people of Nekede, Ihiagwa, and Owerri West people in general by not only reassigning the much talked about abandoned Road which Ihedioha led administration gave out its contract to a construction company.
Information to Lead Newspaper revealed that today Monday 16, said Road would be flagged off for construction.
Thru is even as the House member representing Owerri west in Imo House of Assembly, Hon Kanayo Onyemaechi has hailed Governor over what he described as a promise fulfilled.
Nekede Ihiagwa Road which has been in a very state was abandoned by a contractor assigned to it by Ihedioha led administration upon declaration of Uzodinma as the winner of march 19 Governorship election in Imo.
This abandonment by the contractors was greeted by various reactions by the people of Owerri west and Imo people in general.
While some accused Uzodinma of intentionally stopping the ongoing Road as away to discredit the immediate former Governor Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha, others were of the view that Ihedioha may have collided with the contractors to leave the site for a reason best known to them.
In addition to these allegations, the House members representing the people of Owerri West in Imo House of Assembly Hon Kanayo Onyemachi as well as the House of Representative members were accused of abandoning the said Road.
In reaction to these allegations, the member representing Owerri west in the state Assembly, Onyemaechi, in a press release assured the people of Owerri west that both Uzodinma’s administration and he as a House member never had a hand in the abandonment of the said contract rather enjoined them to exercise patience as Government of Uzodinma would in no distant time, take over the said road.
On the part of the Government, Uzodinma had a few weeks ago, demanded the mobilization fee, given to the company while assuring Imo people that the said contract would be re assigned to another and more serious Contractor as soon the rains were over.
Probably in fulfillment of the said promise, hence the expected flag off today.
Our Roving Reporter revealed that some of the machines were already on site but could not ascertain whether the Government is using another contractor as promised or still using the former one at the time of filing this report.
