ACCOLADES, EMOTIONS AS EVANG. (HON) DAVID OGEWU COMPLETES WATER PROJECT IN OBORU – Onwu Samson Onwu reports
It was a moment of unreserved emotional flow yesterday in Oho-Oboru, Oju LGA as Evang (Hon) David A. Ogewu completes a water project to the amazement of the rural dwellers. The water project is the first of its kind to be carried out directly within the environment of the popular Ihigile market which is the economic hub of the region. An MDGs 2009 motorized borehole project which stands across the road and was to serve a similar purpose had long been vandalized and become moribund for years without any other effort to attend to the water needs of the market and its environ.
The people described the gesture of Evang. Ogewu as a sheer act of magnanimity and unusual compassion as Oboru/Oye council ward could not record any vote in the 2019 presidential and National Assembly elections due to internal crisis. The rural dwellers who took turns to celebrate and pray for Evang. Ogewu for his unyielding passion for Igede nation literally rained curses on political naysayers who misguided them in the last election leading to the lingering crisis in the land.
The water project is expected to serve the locals as well as visitors to the popular Ihigile market.
