Written by on February 25, 2022
The people of Amankalu-Alayi community in Bende Local Government Area of Abia State has commended Senate Chief Whip, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, for the reconstruction of their road.
The lawmaker representing Abia North had, last year, attracted the reconstruction of the two-kilometre Amankalu-Alayi-Akoli-Imenyi Road.
Expressing the community’s delight, President General of Amankalu-Alayi, Iheanyi Okoronkwo, said it was the first time his people were benefitting from any government largesse.
Okoronkwo recalled how during the electioneering, Kalu promised he would cause the road to be reconstructed if he was elected, but the people thought it would go the way of other promises.
The president general said his people were surprised when the project was flagged off and completed within the stipulated time.
A community leader, Eme Mba, said his people would remain eternally grateful to Kalu for attracting the reconstruction of the road.
