The Interim Management Committee (IMC) chairman of Mbaitoli local government area, Hon Canice Mba, has expressed optimism that the three sons of the local government area occupying different political positions in the country will remember their fellow constituents and extend the dividends of democracy to them.
He made his feelings known when members of the Association of Mbaitoli Journalists (AMJ) called on him at the Council headquarters, Nworieubi.
Mba made it clear that with the Vice Chairmanship position of Hon. Henry Nwawuba representing Mbaitoli/Ikeduru Federal constituency at the House of Representatives on the Niger Delta Development Commission(NDDC) House Committee, such dividends of democracy like good roads, bridges and other important infrastructure would be extended to the local government area. He said that Hon Nwawuba was passionate about the people of the area and would do anything to ensure the development of the area and her people.
The IMC Chairman also lauded the Deputy Speaker, Imo State House of Assembly, Hon Okey Onyekanma who is also the lawmaker representing Mbaitoli state constituency on his contributions so far, especially in seeing that sons and daughters of the local government area are adequately represented in all departments of government. He also gave him kudos on his efforts in seeing that state government’s amenities, especially the Rural Access Mobility Project(RAMP) which was flagged off a few days ago captured about six rural roads in Mbaitoli LGA.
Mba is also hopeful that the Special Adviser to the governor on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Hon Aselem Okorie would extend the state government’s development goals to the local government area.
He hoped that with the concerted efforts of the gentlemen mentioned above, Mbaitoli was on the verge of unprecedented sustainable development.
Earlier, journalists had lauded the IMC chairman on his vision to construct a mini stadium, a new council secretariat and start projects in all the 12 wards in the area.
