PROBLEMS OF ELECTRICITY, INSECURITY AT OHAJI/ EGBEMA WILL SOON BE OVER, SAYS EZERUO
Ezeruo Damian, who is the Interim Management Committee Chairman of Ohaji/Egbema local government area of Imo State, says the problems of electricity and insecurity which bedevil the people of the oil bearing locality will soon be over.
He said the Local Government Area Council with the help of the Deputy Governor, ISOPADEC and Oil Companies operating therein is gearing to install electricity at the region so that business and development will thrive for poverty and violence to stop.
Ezeruo, who had audience with the members of Niger Delta Media Forum at the NUJ Secretariat, Along PortHarcourt Road, Owerri, last Thursday, reiterated that the Deputy Governor, Ironna Gerald, has been holding talks with the Oil Multinational Firms on positive ways to install electricity at the Niger Delta Region.
Ezeruo affirmed that “between now and December 2019, every community within Ohaji/ Egbema will have light to encourage productivity, economic viability in order to boost development, saying
the State Government led by Governor Emeka Ihedioha has the priority to Rebuild the State, of which infrastructure as electricity, road, healthcare, water are keys.
On Security, Ezeruo stressed that measures are being put in place to maintain peace and orderliness at the locality so that investment and productivity be strengthened and prioritized.
Ezeruo buttressed that 2 Makeshift Police Stations have been concluded at Awarra and Assa Communities to complement and enhance effective community policing to curtail insecurity at Awarra Court Area and their environs, advising the people to help government secure their area while being conscious of security, even as he told them not to give hoodlums any breathing space to penetrate any longer as they have been weakened.
While condemning the recent attack on Jasper Ndubuaku, who chairs Committee on Recovering of Imo Property from the past regime, Ezeruo regretted that some miscreants from Ohaji, Egbema were involved in the attack.
Ezeruo recounted that he never generalized the thuggery by the miscreants even though a certain politician has been using them abysmally to cause breach of peace in the State, warning parents
and guardians against allowing their children or wards to be used as willing tools to instigate evil.
He thanked the Niger Delta Media Forum for being pragmatic and patriotic, but charged the Forum on continued advocacy and honesty.
