THE Transition Committee Chairman, Ekwusigo Local Government Area, Anambra State, has said that the entire council area is currently undergoing a transition from what it used to be prior to his emergence to another level of development in all the sectors.
Obi, who stated this during an exclusive interview in his office at Ozubulu, the local council area headquarters, said indeed, the Solution Team has mounted its searchlight on Ekwusigo and that the local government authority has embarked on sector-by-sector approach to revamp and rejig local economy for the betterment of grassroots dwell
He said the cooperation and support of ward councilors in the area have indeed been of immense benefit to him as they helped to identify pressing needs in their various wards, noting that school and health facilities in Ekwusigo were receiving priority attention.
In the health sector, he said that prior to his advent as the council chairman, there was a wide dichotomy between health facilities and that people preferred private hospitals rather than seek medical care at the health centres.
Obi however, noted that with the current re-orientation as well as renovations going on at the health centres, the attitudes of the locals towards government health facilities would improve because he believes that health workers in government facilities were more experienced.
He said they were following Governor Chukwuma Soludo’s footsteps in the education sector and that the council authority is currently rehabilitating and renovating leaking classroom infrastructures.
The TC chairman however, applauded Governor Soludo’s decision to recruit about 5000 teachers, adding that the governor took ample time to screen and scrutinise the teachers to ensure they were the best hands amongst the crowd of applicants.
