His Excellency, Governor Emeka Ihedioha today, Tuesday, July 2, 2019 arrived Ishieke in Ideato South LGA for an assessment tour of the power sub-station located in the area.
The Governor who was accompanied by his Deputy, Hon. Gerald Irona amongst other key government officials saw the contractor of the project which has earlier been abandoned return to site.
The Governor noted that the visit was born out of the State Government’s desire and seriousness to get the substation functional as soon as possible. He also charged the Local Government Interim Committee Chairman to ensure that the road leading to the site is given a facelift within the next one week.
Following the Governor’s intervention the expected time of the project completion is slated for December 2019. This will change the over 20 years story of a people living without public power supply.
