World Bank Pump N6.9bn To Tackle Nnewi Erosion

The World Bank has approved the sum of N6.9 billion to curb erosion sites at Nnewi Ichi, Nnewi Local Government Area of Anambra State.

The World Bank intervention would be in partnership with Anambra Government to ensure speedy and effective delivery in line with specification.

Gov. Willie Obiano who said this at Anaedo Square, Nnewi noted that it was regrettable that erosion had become a threat to lives of the people, as many had relocated from their ancestral homes.
“My administration paid N1 billion as counterpart contribution to avoid delay. I am currently working on 37 roads in the LGAs, some of which have been completed.
“The communities in Nnewi North and South will from this weekend enjoy 16 hours power supply daily because of the expansion of the Obosi injection power substation embarked on by my administration.
“This is in addition to commencement of work at erosion sites immediately after the rain, to give the people reasons to live,” Obiano said.
He however called on the people to continue supporting his second term bid to enable him to consolidate on the existing works he had started.
