A high powered delegation of stakeholders of Abavo community on Monday, paid a courtesy visit to the Ika South Council Secretariat where they were received by the council Boss, Hon Barr. Victor Okoh.
The delegation comprised executive of Abavo Clan Union, Olotus of various communities in Abavo was led by Mr Jonathan Agbejiagwe, President Abavo Clan Union. During his speech, Mr Agbejiagwe stated that the visit was necessitated by the outstanding performance of the council Chairman, especially in the area of social amenities, citing the completion of the long abandoned Abavo Police Station, ongoing construction of Edike market and the planned reconstruction of CTC market to a modern market.
He noted that these feats have placed Okoh on a pedestal far above his predecessors and stated that the good people of Abavo and indeed the entire Ika South are very pleased with his style of administration.
“We are indeed pleased that you have redefined quality administration at the local government level. Apart from the lofty idea of constructing modern markets for the people, you have also shown that you are aware of the yearnings of your people by the recent donation of a electricity transformer to Ekueze community in Abavo which has been without power for many years. We say we are very proud of you and your achievements and assure you that we are solidly behind you”, Agbejiagwe stated.
On his part, Hon Okoh thanked them for their show of solidarity and reassured them that he remains committed to the development of the local government area.
He subsequently took them on a tour of the ongoing construction of over two thousand open stalls and two hundred and fifty lock up shops at the Edike market, noting that the market will be open to the public within the shortest time possible and will help decongest the already existing markets in the area.
