Awka-GOVERNOR Peter Obi yesterday urged stakeholders in the state to put the collective interest of the state above other considerations, advising that on no account should the future of the state be compromised.
Addressing Presidents’ General and Secretaries of the various town unions in the state at the Governor’s Lodge, Obi said his administration has not only provided physical infrastructure, but has equally rebuilt human resources and restored core value principles.
He promised that construction of more road projects would soon commence in parts of the state, noting that strategic reconstruction of roads in the past eight years had opened up the entire state.
He also expressed satisfaction that the state was enjoying peace and harmonious co-existence and commended the town union leaders for their contributions in repositioning the state.
The special adviser to the governor on town union matters, Chief Godfrey Moutolu, and some of the presidents general said Governor Obi’s administration had accelerated the tempo of work on various developmental projects across the state even as his tenure was coming to an end.
They observed that he was the first governor in the state to bring the welfare of town unions to the front burner by empowering them as government at the grassroots without interfering in their activities.
