Urgent appeal to Imo Government


rochas-okorocha--SIR: I wish to draw the attention of Governor, Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha to the collapsed road network in Mgbuisii autonomous community in Ohaji/Egbema Local Council.

Suffice it to say that work commenced four years ago on the Nkaraha-Umuagwu- Oburugo road, that is from Owerri-Port Harcout federal road to Obinze- Umuapu state axis.

Regrettably, this road of about six kilometres appears abandoned. During the rainy season, the laterite poured makes the road slippery and impassable for vehicular movement and any other use. The people then resort regrettably to farm roads which had not been in use for decades. It is imperative that the state should deploy contractors to site to complete the job. Government should not increase the suffering of the people by its insensitivity. Mgbuisii community has supported previous governments, especially the current administration, with no infrastructure to show for it.

We are not asking for too much from the government. Rather than abandoned the road network in the community, they can be graded for now to mitigate the suffering of the people. This is crucial so that their economic activities will not completely crumble.

After several years of neglect and abandonment by previous administrations, the community deserves a lift on infrastructure.

We need urgent assistance as further delay will definitely compound this present pitiable state.

The community welcomed the start of the construction of Mgbuisii Secondary School at Umuagwu. But the school project seems stalled for reasons unknown to the community. It must be noted that the project has reached advanced level which makes one wonder why work should be stopped after all.

Furthermore, for more than four years now, the community has been without power supply, occasioned by a lack of step-down transformer at Umuagwu- Mgbuisii. To ameliorate the power supply problem, we appeal to the state government to provide us with one 300/5 or 500/5 amperage for the construction of a sub – station in the area.
