Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State, has commissioned a civic centre, Ovu Umule built and handed over to the people of Umule Community in Osisioma LGA of Abia State by their son and Chief Press Secretary to Abia State governor, Sir. Onyebuchi Ememanka.
In his speech while commissioning the civic centre, Ikpeazu congratulated his Chief Press Secretary for achieving the feat and building the project for his people which, he explained, would serve both as a community hall and health centre.
The governor who commended Sir Ememanka for his resilience and capacity, asserted that the edifice will stand as a monument to remind Ndi Umule of “their period” in government.
The governor assured that the Abia State government would equip the health centre with medical facilities while some indigenes of the community who read health related courses are employed to work in the health centre.
Earlier, the donor and Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Ememanka, thanked Governor Ikpeazu for assisting him in ensuring that his dream of building a befitting civic centre for his community was realized.
He explained that the centre which is a storey building, would serve two purposes, explaining that while the downstairs will serve as community hall and community health centre, the upstairs will be an auditorium to be named Godwin and Susan Ememanka Memorial Auditorium in honour of his late parents, who did not only give birth to them, their children, but trained them to be useful in the society.
