By Steve Oko
The joy of the locals of Obilohia Umuobiala Autonomous community in Isuikwuato Local Government Area of Abia State knew no bounds Wednesday as the immediate-past senator representing Abia North, Senator Mao Ohuabunwa, commissioned a water borehole project he attracted to them.
Conveying the gratitude of the people to the senator during the ceremony, the Transition Committee Chairman of Isuikwuato LGA, Hon. Chima Agbeze, thanked the senator for alleviating the plights of the people over water shortage.
He noted that water had been among the top priority needs of the people and thanked the senator for coming to their rescue.
The Council boss described Ohuabunwa as a politician with uncommon qualities , saying it is rare to see a public officer holder still pursuing the welfare of the people even out of office.
He assured him of the continued support of Isuikwuato people even in his ongoing political battle with his successor at the election petitions tribunal.
Responding, Ohuabunwa said the project which was executed by the Federal Ministry of Water Resources was in fulfilment of his campaign promises.
He said he decided to ensure the completion and inauguration of the project to prove that he was not a commercial politician who only show up during electioneering period and disappears soon afterwards.
Ohuabunwa who is still challenging the election of Senator Orji Uzor Kalu at the tribunal also donated a generating set for powering the water project.
He tasked the people to jealously guard the facility against vandals
The senator later commissioned the renovated Angele Ukwu Primarily Health Care Centre, Ovim where he, after listening to a passionate appeal by the women of the community, also promised to deliver a generating set to them in a week time.
The leader of the women, Mrs. Elizabeth Ikedi, had commended the senator for giving the health center a facelift, and appealed to him to also help solve their water need by sinking a borehole at the centre.
Responding, Ohuabunwa said he would study the bill of quality contained in the project to know its scope.
He assured that more attention would be given to the health center if he recovered his “stolen mandate “.
Wawa News Global reports that the centre had been repainted, re-roofed and the floors tiled.
