After Embarrassment By Rain During 2019 Election Campaign, Abia Lawmaker Rebuilds 72-yr-Old School

The member representing Ikwuano/Umuahia federal constituency at the House of Representatives, Hon. Sam Onuigbo, has built a four-classroom block for a 72-year-old Ekebedi Community School, Ala-ala Oboro, Ikwuano Local Government Area of Abia State.

Inaugurating the project yesterday, the lawmaker disclosed that he decided to embark on the project after his election campaign at the school in 2019 was disrupted by rain.

He said that while they were forced to go inside the classrooms by rain, the amount of rain that drenched his entourage inside the classrooms following leaky roofs was much higher.

Rep Onuigbo explained that a six-classroom block was captured in the budget for the school as part of his constituency project but regretted that the contractor who was awarded the project by the federal government wanted to shortchange the school by building a two-classroom block.

He said that when he got to know about it he quickly intervened insisting it must be a six-classroom block as captured in the budget, but regretted that the contractor only managed to increase it to four-classroom.

The lawmaker further lamented that the contractor later abandons the project, hence, his (Onuigbo’s) decision to complete the project with his personal resources.
