Gov. Francis Nwifuru of Ebonyi has assured the people of Ishiagu Community in Ivo Local Government Area of Ebonyi that the Ishiagu Water Scheme (IWS) embarked by his predecessor, Chief Dave Umahi would be completed by November, this year.

Ishiagu Water Scheme project located close to Ivo River within the vicinity of the Federal College of Agriculture, Ishiagu (FCAI), was started during the first tenure of former Gov. Dave Umahi.

Arc. Moses Aja, the President-General of Ishiagu Community Development Union (ICDU), Federated, an umbrella body of the Ishiagu community disclosed this in a press briefing on Monday at Ishiagu.

Aja said that the governor has expressed readiness to inaugurate the water project in December immediately after completion.

Aja said that the briefing was to inform the public especially the Ishiagu sons and daughters both at home and in the diaspora of the outcome of the courtesy visit to the governor of the state by the leadership and stakeholders of Ishiagu on Saturday.

He said that the visit was aimed at felicitating the governor on his numerous achievements in both social infrastructure and human capital development in less than one year in office.

The PG noted that the visit was to show the solidarity and support of the community to the governor and also to highlight some of the challenges facing the people of Ishiagu with a request for urgent attention.

He said: “Gentlemen of the press, this press briefing is to inform the public and especially the sons and daughters of Ishiagu living at home and abroad that the leadership and stakeholders of community paid a courtesy/solidarity visit to our dear governor, His Excellency , Gov. Francis Nwifuru.

“The visit afforded the community an opportunity to express her profound gratitude to the governor for the many life-touching projects including human capital development he has carried out in less down one year in office.

“We also thanked His Excellency for appointing nine of our sons into his cabinet and for executing several infrastructural projects in Ishiagu.

“The governor has graciously approved and released a complete fund for the completion of Ivo Water Scheme with completion date fixed for November.

“The governor also approved the issuance of Certificate-of-Occupancy (C-of-O) for the newly acquired site for the Ishiagu Ultra Modern Market.

“It is gratifying to note that all the requests/prayers made to the governor including a request for the return of the Ishiagu Health Centre taken over by the state government to the community were all approved.

“The governor reassured that his administration will continue to develop the state and take it to greater heights.”

Aja said that the Ishiagu community deeply appreciated the efforts of the governor in deepening democracy, infrastructural and human capital developments.

“We have thus adopted the governor as an ‘Ishiagu son’ and have requested His Excellency to choose any date convenient for him for the conferment a chieftaincy title by the community,” Aja said. ENDS//
