Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, has directed Transition Council Chairmen not to abandon projects initiated their predecessors in the state.
The Governor gave the directive in a statement signed by Chief John Okiyi Kalu, the state Commissioner for Information and made available to ABN TV on Wednesday.
Governor Ikpeazu said the council chairmen should rather focus on completing all ongoing projects before embarking on new ones.
“The Commissioner for Special Duties, Joint Projects, Chief John Okoro, and his counterpart in Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Sir Gabriel Onyendilefu, are hereby directed to monitor and ensure full compliance with this directive.
“Of particular interest are the ongoing Ozuitem Water Scheme and Amoji Imenyi Bridge in Bende LGA, Akara motor park in Isuikwuato LGA, among others in all the 17 LGAs”, the statement added.
