A delegation of Uturu Development Union led by the executive Chairman of Isiukwuato LGA, Hon. Nnamdi Udueze, paid a courtesy call on the Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu.
Speaking on behalf of the Union, Hon. Emma Uche Akaeme, the President of the Development Union, commended the State Governor for his Developmental strides and also for appointing sons and daughters from the community as members of his cabinet.
He expressed delight in Gov. Ikpeazu’s political sagacity which led to the successful conduct of local Government election that resulted to an unprecedented emergence of an illustrious Uturu son as council Chairman. He assured the Governor of maximum support.
He however, appealed to the Governor to intervene in the Electricity challenge faced by the community. He disclosed that Uturu community has not had power supply for several years.
Additionally, Hon. Akaeme also commended the wife of the Governor, Mrs Nkechi Ikpeazu, who through her Vicar Hope Foundation, built a bungalow for a widow, Mrs. Celestina Obieze in the community.
In his reaction, the Governor who was shocked on hearing the electrical challenge in the community, promise to donate transformers to the community and promised to connect them to the national grid when all necessary enquiries are made.
Speaking further, he advised the delegation to encourage their sons and daughters who are up to voting age, to register and obtain their voters card to avoid being disenfranchised.
The meeting also had in attendance, traditional rulers from Uturu Community.
