Senate Chief Whip, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu has vowed to include electricity and water in the projects being executed for his Abia North senatorial constituency. Senator Kalu while inaugurating the action committee for Ohafia water and electricity projects at his country home, Igbere, Bende Local Government Area of Abia State, expressed dissatisfaction with the dilapidated state of electricity infrastructure in some communities in Abia North.
He also said the water challenges of some communities in the constituency would soon be a thing of the past as he assured that he would do all within his power to tackle the crisis and ensure that the affected communities are reconnected. Senator Kalu charged members of the committee headed by Chief Eme Uche Onu to be committed and report their findings in two weeks.
