“Yesterday, I joined the Honourable Minister of Water Resources, Eng. Suleiman Adamu, to commission the Federal Government’s initiated Water Scheme located at Ezeala Akpaka, Umueze 1 in Ehime-Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State.

“I expressed our profound gratitude to President Muhammadu Buhari for graciously approving the State as a beneficiary of the World Bank Sustainable Water Scheme, even as we anticipate the improvement of the facility to serve the approved 200,000 households.

“Though the scheme is designed and installed to serve the good people of Okigwe Senatorial District, I charged members of the host community to take ownership of the project and ensure its protection from vandalization and misuse,” he said.
