…harps on Unity of purpose as a panacea for development
The Deputy Speaker of Imo State House of Assembly and member representing Nwangele State constituency, Rt. Hon. Ugonna Ozurigbo is currently in the United States of America to attend the annual Isu Na Eliligborogu convention which he never fails to attend yearly.
It is an annual gathering of all Isu people of Nwangele where issues concerning the development of Nwangele are prioritized and possible solutions are provided.
Addressing the gathering, over the weekend, Rt. Hon. Ugonna Ozurigbo, Enyioha Umuozu expressed gratitude to the organizers while urging them to keep up the team spirit.
According to Hon. Ozurigbo, unity is the sure fire way to achieving rapid development for Nwangele and any efforts to enhance peaceful coexistence will be supported. He urged those who are yearning for more autonomous communities to be created in Nwangele Local Government Area to banish such thoughts from their minds as there are more pressing issues in Nwangele now than fragmentation. He advised that rather than fight for more autonomous communities, efforts should be made to attract more political wards to Nwangele, as development now tends to be ward based.
He thanked those who have supported the effort to provide basic infrastructures in Nwangele through self help, insisting that Government alone cannot do it all.
The event was well attended by not just Nwangele people but also notable Imo sons and daughters in and around America.
