Minister of Works, Housing and Power, Babatunde Fashola (SAN)
Disillusioned by what he saw on ground, Minister of Works, Housing and Power, Babatunde Fashola (SAN), has censured the rate at which temporary workers taking care of central government streets in the Southeast surrender employments granted to them.
The Imo State government, then, has marked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the host groups of Ulakwo, Agbala and Ermii in Owerri North Council, where tipper, trailer and engine merchants and assistant shops would be situated in the state.
Fashola, who communicated unnerve amid his visit to some elected streets in the state yesterday told the Governor Rochas Okorocha, spoke to by his Deputy, Eze Madumere, at the Government House to advise the proper quarters of such deferrals.
The priest focused on the requirement for both the state and governments to work in collaboration towards streets recovery and development.
Okorocha depicted the volume of streets deserted in the state as unfathomable, taking note of that elected streets requiring consideration transverse the three zones of Orlu, Owerri and Okigwe and encouraged the government to expand its beat in the state.
He uncovered that the state government chose to restore a portion of the elected streets because of their financial significance, focusing on that the Urban Renewal program of the state including both governments’ streets has paid well.
Okorocha asked the Federal Controller of Works in the state to work in organization with the state government.
The priest, in organization of the expanded State Executive Council, went to government streets in the three zones.
Marking the MoU within the sight of the three rulers of the groups, Secretary to the Government (SSG), George Eche, complimented the partners for their support to the state government.
