The people of Mmaku in Awgu Local government Area of Enugu state have commended Senator Ike Ekwerenmadu and Hon Tobi Okechukwu on the provision of infrastructure in the town especially the recently finished Ugbo – Ajaba Mmaku road project.
In two separate letters of commendation presented to Senator Ekwerenmadu and Hon Okechukwu recently in Abuja, the people of Mmaku under the aegis of Mmaku NewAges noted that “you have demonstrated exemplary leadership and foresight in mobilizing resources for the completion of this road project in the last few years”
In the letters signed by President Mmaku NewAges Air Commodore Nick Orjiude (rtd) the community reports that “today, our people enjoy comfortable and safer vehicular movement on the road. It has increased the economic and social interaction amongst our genealogically and socially interwoven peoples of Mmaku, Ogugu, Ugbo and their kits and kin in other communities around that axis”
Most gratifying to the people of Mmaku is the fact that the two legislators “pioneered and completed this road project within a timeframe that has rekindled confidence in the ability of government to live out the dreams of a people on a project”
Mmaku NewAges equally noted the positive developments on the Oji – Awgu road rehabilitation and reconstruction “We are assured that the construction company – SETRACO, undertaking the project will return to the project when the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic abates, to finalize the remaining portions of the road” the non – political organization added.
In their responses the two lawmakers expressed joy on the commendation and promised to use their presence at the National Assembly to ensure that all the projects within Enugu West senatorial zone are completed before the expiration of their tenures.
According to Senator Ekerenmadu “I am really thrilled to receive this commendation from my own people, it goes to show that people are watching” adding “I am happy to have fulfilled my promise to our people on the Oji – Awgu road reconstruction”
On his own, Hon Okechukwu thanked Mmaku NewAges for thinking it wise to move to commend their efforts on the road projects and other interventions initiated for the good of the people of the zone under the leadership of Senator Ekwerenmadu.
“This action of yours will strengthen our efforts to continue to improve our representation of the interest of our people at the National Assembly” he added.
