The continued Abia Online media tour on ABIA CSDP projects has consistently brought to fore lots of goodies the agency have provided to Abians which were never in the public domain. Most of such projects are targeted at reducing rural-urban drift, hence the continued planting of such lofty projects in the hinterlands.
Note that availability of the funds used for these social/community development projects was released by the World Bank after Governor Okezie Victor Ikpeazu had paid the 50 million Naira counterpart fund.
The Abia Online media crew left the station and had a brief stop at Umuankwo – Umumkpor Ikem Nvosi where the Abia State Agency for Community and Social Projects (Abia CSDP) built two projects for the people; a civic hall and market stall.
According to a passer-by, the old civic hall was a half walled mud house with thatch while the surrounding became extremely bushy which has been transformed
The CDMC chairman made us to understand that the site where the market is built was a mere ‘ihu nmuo'(shrine) which was more or less a forest, housing many species of reptiles.
We also visited Apu Ukwu classroom renovation, Kputuke electricity installation, Amairi Ovorji health center.
Other projects visited was the Isiala Umueze Health center and their civic center.
According to one of the members of the community, before the hall was built, the people in the village were making use of a hall in a nearby village for their meetings. They thanked God for giving them a government that has remembered them.
