Give us access roads, we shall key into your mechanised farming---UFUMA Tells Gov.Obiano



Ufuma community in Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra state has stressed its readiness to key into Governor Willie Obiano’s four pillar enablers such as mechanised agriculture, industrialisation, oil and gas, and others.

These, the community observed would catapult the state to ‘African Dubai’ as envisaged by the governor, however, they regretted that none is achievable without rural social-infrastructural

UFUMA PG-Elect, Sir Basil
Speaking to after been elected to pilot the affairs of Ufuma Development Union (UDU) as President-General, Sir Basil Onwunze explained that good road networks [post_ad] and electrification at grassroots would create enabling environment for both medium and small scale industry to thrive.

“Our people are proud farmers. We are ready to key into mechanised farming and other Governor Obiano’s enablers. But we don’t have roads to transport our agricultural products to the wider world. About three of our villages have been totally cut-off from their neighbours while others pass through hell. Although we have electricity, since inception of EEDC we have been paying our light bills without experiencing power for once.

“Recall that social infrastructure engenders meaningful development in the societies. It creates enabling environment for both the small scale and medium scale industries to thrive. I am pleading on government to do more on rural development because it will encourage people to site industries and factories, and thereon engage the unemployed, wealth creation, reduce rural to urban migration to barest minimum because what you’re looking for Jericho lies in Jalingo, as well as contribute immensely towards curbing restiveness and insecurity.”

However, while praising the state government for building health center in the town, the outgoing President General of UDU, Chief Joseph Moudebe enjoined Obiano through the state ministry of health, to come to their rescue because neither qualified medical experts nor drugs were in the place.

Chief Moudebe, who equally enjoined Anambra State government to rehabilitate their primary and secondary schools, bemoaned that the respective structures were in shambles, even as qualified teachers were lacking intoto, and further encouraged the 11 men executive recently elected to pilot affairs of UDU to work in peace and unity for the betterment of the populace.
