Acting President Osinbajo, moves to secure federal government abandoned projects in Imo State

Nigeria acting president Prof. Yemi Osinbajo visited Ohaji-Egbema, Imo State, to secure federal government abandoned project yesterday. The movement by the Federal government to secure these projects especially that of  the oil producing communities came because of the new plans of the Nigerian government for the Niger Deltans.

The acting president who has been to other state of the Niger Delta, places like Delta state, River State, Bayelsa State, decided to face Imo State on his tour to secure these abandoned projects.

According to ifeanyicy, those areas he visited were the Skills Acquisition Centre in Abaezi Egbema abandoned by NDDC and the Egbema power plant abandoned by the Federal Government. 

The Acting president after the tour assured the people that all the contractors who abandoned their projects would be mandated to return to site and also promised to look into the request made by the people to convert the abandoned Skills Acquisition Centre into the proposed Niger Delta University of Science and Technology.

IYB gathered that Rochas Okorocha the Imo State governor, and the community leaders whom the vice president met at a town hall meeting gave him a warm welcome to the state. They applauded him for having them in mind and they are full of hope that the acting Presidents visit to their community has resurrected hope of the development they have always wanted.
