So you voted GEJ into power to come and do cosmetic works in Alaigbo? Rather than upgrade the University both infrastructurally and Academically he's busy planting flowers that'll wither away even before he steps down! Just the same way he patched Enugu-Onitsha xpressway rather than reconstruct the road.

eaglechild: ESWAMA!!
ESWAMA!!
ESWAMA!!
I have never seen it this bad before.
Who is in charge of ESWAMA. The person should be fired ASAP!
He has completely neglected everything.
Waste has accumulated in ALL the major streets of Enugu.
The waste from the road block that was done on 21st dec is still littered all over Okpara square.
Old park, presidential road etc are eyesores!
Pls does anyone know how to contact ESWAMA!
Why dont they work on weekends?
This is very disturbing.
Didnt you guys read/hear about Mrs Jane Ugwu? She died early this month. She is the madam of environmental. Her absence maybe difficult for her team to adjust properly

Her death is sad, but keeping Coal City clean must continue without further delay. Enugu state government must also dialogue with investors toward establishment of a recycling company in the state. Enugu must not be an environmental disaster like Onitsha Ado! Whoever took over from Mrs. Ugwu must act now.
Re: Enugu, The Pride Of The East. by Nightshift(m): 8:01pm On Dec 30, 2012
I often wonder if Enugu state government has any plans of cleaning, developing or reshaping some of the numerous slums scattered around Coal City. Any person who have lived in Enugu must have heard about such areas like Ugwu Aron, Ugwu Alfred, Iva-Valley, backsides of Obiagu Road, half a dozen ones at Abakpa, Ngene Evu etc. Early this year, i had the opportunity of going to Iva-Valley for the first time. I marvelled at the natural beauty of that part of Enugu. For the first time also, a new asphalt road connecting the area with new market was constructed by Gov. Chime. I inspected a bridge under construction, which will connect Iva-Valley with a bigger slum( i think Pottery is it's name) up Milken Hill. That new road opened some commercial activities in an area that was hitherto difficult to reach. Iva-Valley was a well laid out area with bungalows and lush trees(especially mango), by the British administrators of Coal Corporation during the colonial period. According to a resident, the estate was left to decay by some of the owners of the houses who started building shacks to accommodate more tenants. I was surprised when i noticed that the water taps there are seldom dry. All the houses there still belong to former coal miners or their families. With new roads, such an area could become a tourist hotspot. The Valley is like an egg which contains the history of Enugu. The struggle for independence, better pays, and the fight for freedom from colonial coal mines began in such a place like Iva-Valley.

You guys have come again..when the e-war starts you will be among the ones to seek for peace talk. Why can't you talk about your timid enugu without mentioning Onitsha the economic capital of Eastern Nigeria?

A times I wonder what is in enugu state that people are talking about. The last time a friend visited your enugu, garbage dumps has taken over all the streets and roads, all the ongoing work are presently abandoned, the gov has gone AWOL, govt officials in the state are grabbing the much they can while it last and yet some people will come here and keep deluding themselves.

Enugu state is this and that, yet you guys will not stopping running to Lagos, Onitsha, PH etc for economic survival. Why not you guys stay put in your place and keep watching 'pictures'.

You guys should be more concerned about the missing gov, that alone should take the center stage in all una discussions instead of pretending that all is well, when the whole state has gone up in flames..

I feel you. Those places you mentioned are far from Enugu center development but the people there are not complaining too much. Their supply of PHCN light and pipe borne water is the highest in the state. Gov Sullivan Chime gave Iva valley a new road, but what of the masses of these locations;
Ugbo Odogwu
Ugbo Albert
Ugbo Aaron
Agu Aboh
Obed Camp
Ngene Evu
Ikirike (Idaw River)

These places have some similarities, hilly and secluded environment that only the poor live. (Forgive my use of the term poor) but that is the reality on the ground. Bus drivers, Okada and Keke drivers, barrow pushers and hawkers of all kinds of wares dominate those areas listed. If I were to be governor, I will really see how to help these people if I want to take care of the poor in Enugu.
Re: Enugu, The Pride Of The East. by Nightshift(m): 10:14pm On Dec 30, 2012
@Spydder880, you know those areas as well. Opening those slums with good asphalt roads will boost economic activities there . Mini shops and the like will spring up, thereby keeping the dwellers busy in their domain. Enugu state government must not abandon them. When our economy develops, such places will become estate investment attractions for Nigerian or multinational companies. Examples like that are abound in many developing cities around the world.
