Erosion: FG Confirms Intervention In Abia As Sen. Kalu's Effort Pays Off by BleedingPen: 9:03pm On Aug 12
By Ogochukwu Isioma

ABUJA — The efforts by Senate Chief Whip, Senator Orji Kalu to see an end to erosion problems in Abia State, has finally paid off following intervention moves by the Federal Government, Igbere TV reports.

Kalu representing Abia North Senatorial District, had sought FG’s intervention in the state following the level of damages done by erosion in some parts of his Constituency.

In a letter exclusively obtained by Igbere TV, entitled: “Request For Urgent Intervention in the Erosion Prone Areas of my Senatorial District”, the former governor had written specifically to Mr. Boss Mustapha, Secretary to Government of the Federation, SGF.

A response letter from the Federal Government through the Ecological Fund Management Committee, showed that the government had graciously approved the request.

“I am directed to acknowledge the receipt of your letter dated 10th July 2019, on the above subject matter and to inform you that your request has been captured in Ecological Fund Office data bank for further necessary action”, the acknowledgement letter partly read.

The letter dated July 18, was signed by Engr. F. O. Okeke, the Director, Soil Erosion and Flood Control Department, on behalf of the Permanent Secretary of the Ecological Fund Office.

A follow-up letter by the Abia North Senator, dated July 18 and addressed to the SGF, further revealed that the Federal Government had captured the affected areas in its projects.

“You may wish to recall following my request on the above subject matter in your organisation which has duly been captured in the Ecological Fund Office data bank...”, the letter read in part.

While thanking the SGF for his support, the two-time Governor of Abia further requested for approval of more erosion prone areas in future projects.

“I write to request for your urgent intervention, as erosion has continuously ravaged and devastated the entire Senatorial district with total near collapse on the affected areas which are:
(a) Abiriba and Ohafia Highway in Ohafia LGA;
(b) Elu/Amaekpu/Ugwueobenzu Hospital Road Ohafia LGA;
(c) Nkporo Ubibia Itumbuzo Ring Road;
(d) Bende Town, Bende LGA.

“I further solicit for your kind intervention to save the sinking communities by approving the reconstruction of these gully affected areas in the next intervention budget”, Senator Kalu wrote.

“I look forward to meeting you in person to explain in details the deteriorating state of my Senatorial district.

“Please find attached photocopy of the intervention request letter from the Ecological Fund Office”, the Senate Chief Whip concluded.

“Thank you and please accept my warm regards from me and my family.”

Great one from a great guy. Many of his mates don't even know a thing about their constituency, let alone plead the course of the masses that placed them there.

Kalu is trying so hard to be in the news. Mere acknowledgement for receipt of his requests and he is already rushing to the media, what will then happen when he gets the approval for erosion control projects, or cash backing is granted for the projects. It even hurts to know that some of these erosion sites have been there pre- 1999 when he was governor and chose to do nothing about them. Kalu will sure end the way of Rochas Okorocha, if his quest to be in the news is not curbed. I leave Kalu with this proverb "shame awaits the man who beats his own gong, while the flute is being crafted"

Mature way of playing politics. Everyone goes home happy. For every reasonable and matured politician? Instinct should tell u that after elections, it is all about the masses. Some useless senators will still be shouting apga pdp apc while a wise one is using his brain to get things done from the fed govt. Kudos to a wise man although his supporters and most people from his domain would have played the hatred known politics.

That's his job... It is only when politicians are doing their jobs that we start hailing them like it's for free. This is one out of many and it doesn't change the fact that he still has more to do because he's expected to do more.
Kudos to him sha.

Good move, but we must not forget that he did little or nothing as Governor of the same state. He even had cases with the EFCC until he joined APC and his ‘sins were forgiven’. It is obvious that his personal interests still take prevalence over the wellbeing of the state. Nigerian politicians are terrible, really terrible.

Orji Uzor Kalu doing all he can to force this failure of a president Buhari down his people's throat grin grin grin grin grin

That was how he said had made a place for RUGA in Abia State long before it was even mention grin grin grin grin grin

Ass licker! Rochas failed, you will also fail!!!

Shame on him, power to the people!!!

By the way what happened to Kenneth OKONKWO Is he now in the use and dump department


Parada:
That’s a lot beta than the foolish Ihedioha chasing after Okorocha niece n nephews don’t u think ?!

Ihedioha is doing the bidding of his people!!! He has the support of his people!

He has not done enough!!! None of the Okorocha family is jailed yet!!! Or how does it stands as a deterrent for those who would meant to take the people for granted


Parada:
To think Buhari had same right as Ihedioha, doing what their people want & no sorrowful wail from any Jew can stop him. Buhari is a failure but we can attest to the success the shithole Igboland land as been condemned to with over 20 years Of PDP, to the extent every living thing can’t wait to be evacuated from the hellhole.


You are very wrong my friend!!!

1. I am not going to bore you with the story of how the same elements in PDP made up APC undecided I mean what has really changed if Buha incorporated the same corrupt people grin grin grin

2. Jonathan handed over to Buhari, Rochas Okorocha refuses to do the official handing over to Ihedioha!!!

3. We all saw how Rochas looted Imo State and how Ihedioha is systematically re-covering all! I mean these are hard core evidences

4. Buhari saw Ganduje receive bribe shocked shocked shocked shocked Tinubu had bullion vans deliver money at his residence yet he is chasing shadows

5. He is fighting his enemies with our resources and you call that corruption fight

Common!!!
