I ‘ve commissioned over 20 projects since I left senate – Ohuabunwa
By Steve Oko
The immediate -past senator representing Abia North senatorial district, Senator Mao Ohuabunwa, has said he had commissioned over 20 projects in different communities across the zone since March despite losing his re-election bid.
Ohuabunwa who disclosed this while commissioning a water borehole project at Ukwuakpu Ututu autonomous community Arochukwu Local Government Area said the projects were all people oriented.
He said he decided to ensure the projects which he attracted while in the senate were completed in fulfilment of his campaign promises.
Ohuabunwa said he also wanted to prove that he was not a commercial politician but passionate about the development of the zone.
The former Speaker ECOWAS Parliament said he resolved to personally commission the projects to avoid his political opponents taking credit for what they did not do.
Ohuabunwa said his aim was to ensure every community in the zone had a federal project sited in it to give the locals a sense of belonging.
He advised benefiting communities to guard the projects jealously against vandals.
The projects include solar powered water boreholes and primary health care centres.
Meanwhile the senator was treated to a very warm reception in each of the communities he went for the commissioning.
Speaking on behalf of his subjects, the Traditional Prime Minister of Ania Akanu Ohafia, Ezeogo Emma Uduka, said Ohuabunwa had set a new record by commissioning project even after leaving office.
The senator had commissioned a water borehole project located in the premises of the community’s primary health care centre.
Similarly, former Commissioner for Finance, Dr. Philip Nto who spoke on behalf of Ututu said Ohuabunwa had within his short stay at the senate attracted more projects than his predecessors put together.
He expressed faith that the senator who is still challenging the victory of his successor, Orji Uzor Kalu, would recover his “stolen mandate” at the tribunal.
