Onuigbo Lauds Otti, Tinubu on Federal Secretariat
… Reassures host community of govt’s readiness to follow principles
Former Member of the House of Representatives and Board Member representing the South East on the Governing Board of the North East Development Commission, Rep. Sam Onuigbo has praised the Abia State Governor, Dr Alex Otti, for placing the development of the State above party politics.
Onuigbo made this known in Umuahia on Wednesday, August 23, 2023, following the award of the contract for the construction of Federal Secretariat, Umuahia.
The former Federal Lawmaker who attracted the project since October 2019, said the takeoff of construction was delayed due to the politics of placing party above the people exhibited by the immediate past Abia State government. He therefore expressed his gratitude to Governor Otti whom he said has shown early that his focus is on the development of Abia not minding the political party of the person attracting the developmental project.
Onuigbo who thanked the Traditional Ruler of Ekeoba Kingdom, Ohuhu, Umuahia North LGA., HRH Eze Iheanyichukwu Nwokenna, (Oba the Great of Ekeoba Kingdom) commended him for his tenacity and cooperation in ensuring that the project materialised for the betterment of not only Ekeoba people, but also for the entire Abia State.
The former lawmaker assured Eze Nwokenna that Governor Otti is fully committed to the process and has restated his unreserved commitment towards actualising the compensation due to the host community.
He, therefore, implored the Traditional Ruler to reassure his community of the commitment of the State Government to paying the necessary compensation, and, while also appealing to the former to support the contractors in carrying out the developmental project.
In the same vein, he commended the President, His Excellency Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR, for his commitment to equity and all round development of the country and assured that now that the bottleneck of self-sabotage has been removed by Governor Otti, Abia State will in no time have its long overdue Federal Secretariat including the benefits derivable therefrom.
