(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – An implementation committee, known as the Implementation Committee on Abia Civil Service Housing Scheme, has been inaugurated by the Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, to construct a worthy housing estate for civil servants in the state.
The seven-member committee is to be chaired by the State Commissioner for Housing, Hon Theophilus Ugboajah. Other members of the implementation committee include Engr. Alozie Nwankwo (Secretary), Head of Service, Sir Onyii Wamah, State Commissioner for Lands, Hon. Suleiman Ukandu and Mr. Okezie Ugboaja .
At the inauguration which held at Government House, Umuahia, Governor Ikpeazu, who was represented by his deputy, Sir Ude Oko Chukwu, reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to providing a befitting housing estate for Abia civil servants, urging the committee to work assiduously towards making the goal a reality.
The Commissioner for Housing, Ugboajah, who doubles as the chairman of the committee assured that members of the committee will work relentlessly to achieve government’s desire of giving Abia civil servants a befitting housing scheme and stressed the need for communities in the state to donate their land for meaningful development.
Impact: Apart from the fact that the housing estate, when ultimately built, would ease the housing needs of Abia civil servants, it would also be a landmark achievement for the incumbent administration of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, which, unlike its predecessors, would have brought to reality an idea that had been a utopia.
