Said Obiano" I want to call on our community leaders, Igwes President Generals and leaders of thought to put heads together and agree on any project worth N20million to be constructed in their towns and bring it to the attention of the governor as what was agreed by consensus for the benefit of the town. I assure you that we are ready and the money is already earmarked for the project. As soon as you get back to us, we will do the necessary things and mobilize to site."
