N20m: Anambra warms up to dole out phase 3

The Anambra State Government has revealed plans to commenced the third phase of its N20 million community infrastructure project under the leadership of Governor Willie Obiano, reports ITRealms.

The government has also warned the Presidents-General of towns yet to complete the first and second phases to ensure they meet up with end of February 2018 deadline.

As said by the Hon. Commissioner Information and Communication Strategy, Ogbuefi Tony Nnachetta, the Executive Council of Anambra State Government has observed that a number of Communities have not completed their very first tranche due to environmental and other circumstances.

“Council frowned at this delay and have directed the Presidents General, Traditional institutions and Town organisations to take immediate actions to galvanise the completion of these projects before the end of February 2018,” he warned.

Nnechetta said that some 19 communities across the three senatorial zones of the state are currently on the default list and may not benefit from the third phase of the N20 community infrastructure project grant, with Anambra North Senatorial zone topping defaulters with nine non-compliance communities, whereas others have five each.

He listed the defaulting communities in Anambra South Senatorial Zone to include Ezira (Orumba South LGA), Ihite (Orumba South), Oraifite (Ekwusigo), Awgbu (Orumba North), Nnewi (Nnewi North).

For the Anambra Central Senatorial Zone, Nnachetta said that Awka  in (Awka South) , Oba (Idemili South), Ugbenu (Awka North), Isiagu (Awka South)  and Ebenebe (Awka North) are yet to comply with conditions set out in phase 1 and phase 2.

On Anambra North Senatorial Zone, he said, Obeagwe  in  (Ogbaru), Ifite-Anam  (Anambra West), Ukwalla (Anambra West) , Ogbunike (Oyi), Umueze Anam (Anambra West), Ifite Anam (Anambra West), Ogidi (Ogbaru), Aguleri (Anambra East), and Igbakwu (Ogbaru).
According to him, the Council also noted that  a certain number of communities have not processed the second tranche of the N2Om Community Infrastructure Project.

“These communities are asked to hasten up and conclude this process. Government is set to activate the third tranche shortly by March 2018 and completions of one and second tranches are clear prerequisites for communities to qualify,” he said.
