Earlier today, a delegation of Uturu Development Union led by the executive Chairman of Isiukwuato LGA, Nnamdi Udoeze, paid a courtesy call on the Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu.
Speaking on behalf of the Union, Hon. Emma Uche Akaeme, the President of the Development Union, commended the State Government for his Developmental strides and also for appointing sons and daughters from the community as members of his cabinet.
He expressed delight in Gov. Ikpeazu’s political sagacity which led to the successful conduct of local Government election that resulted to an unprecedented emergence of an illustrious Uturu son as council Chairman. He assured the Governor of maximum support.
He however, appealed to the Governor to intervene in the Electricity challenge faced by the community. He disclosed that Uturu community has not had power supply for several years. Additionally, Hon.Akaeme also commended the wife of the Governor, Mrs Nkechi Ikpeazu, who through her Vicar Hope Foundation, built a bungalow for a widow called Mrs Celestina Obieze.
In his reaction, the Governor who was seemingly shocked on hearing the Electical challenge in the community, promise to donate KVA transformers to the community. He also promised to connect them to the national grid when all necessary enquiries are made.
Speaking further, he advised the delegation to encourage their sons and daughters who are up to voting age, to register and obtain their voters card to avoid being disenfranchised.
Traditional rulers from Uturu community were also present at the meeting.
