The State House of Assembly has passed a resolution urging Governor Willie Obiano to direct the Commissioner for Environment, Beautification and Ecology to take urgent steps in reclaiming the erosion site at Ogwuishan, Ogwuaniocha in Ogbaru Local Government Area.
The resolution was as a result of a motion for urgent public importance sponsored by the Member representing Ogbaru Constituency Two Sir Somtochukwu Udeze during yesterdays plenary in Awka.
Sponsoring the motion, Sir Somtochukwu emphasized that if urgent steps are not taken to check the erosion, it would cut the community from Anambra State and make the area impassable.
On his part, the Member representing Ogbaru Constituency One, Sir Benson Nwawulu who regretted that Ogwuishan which is the only motorable route that gives the people of Ihiala access to the area is on the verge of total collapse urged the appropriate Ministry to come to their rescue.
In his contribution, the Member representing Nnewi South Constituency One, Mr Kingsley Iruba said the Ministry of Environment, Beautification and Ecology should as a matter of urgency intervene to ensure that the area which serves as the food basket of the State was not cut off from the State by erosion.
In a separate speech, the Member representing Onitsha North Constituency One Mr Chugbo Enwezor, spoke in favour of the motion.
The Speaker pro-tempore, Chief Victor Okoye who presided over the plenary read out the resolution of the House.
Supporting the motion for adjournment, the Member representing Njikoka Constituency Two, Dr Pete Ibida felicitated with the All Progressives Grand Alliance on the two council wards won by the party in Kaduna State, attributing the success to the leadership qualities of the party’s National Chairman, Chief Victor Ike-Oye.
Similarly, the Member representing Anambra East Constituency, Chief Obinna Emenaka commended the National Assembly for passing the 2018 Appropriation Bill.
The House adjourned till Tuesday next week.
