Anambra Community Commences 1 Million Naira Secondary School Project
Enugwu-Ukwu, a town in Njikoka Local Government of Anambra State, has commenced a one hundred million Naira project for Okutalukwe Secondary School, Enugwu-Ukwu.
The project was kicked off, Thursday, after the traditional ruler of the town, Igwe Sir Ralph Obumnemeh Ekpeh, Eze Enugwu-Ukwu na Igwe Umunri, blessed the site of the project.
The project which covers a state-of-the-art computer laboratory and fencing are to be solely financed through fund generated by free-will donations by the indigenes of the town and expected to be completed in the space of one year.
Orient Daily gathered that the town had in the past embarked on similar projects. It built the General Hospital Enugwu Ukwu in 1962 and donated it to then Dr. M. I. Okpara’s government. In 1982, it built the gigantic Civic Center Complex and handed it over to Governor Francis Abulu to be used as the state’s House of Assembly Complex when Enugu State was created.
The principal of the School, Mrs. Grace Chukwukelo, could not hold her excitement as she believed that the project when completed will put the school in limelight.
In a vote of thanks, the PG of the town Comrade Bonny Ozo Nkwuaku thanked all that corrected to the project.
“We use this medium to thank all those who have so far contributed to this project. May God replenish their pockets. We also call on others who have not done something to kindly do so.”
With this blessing, work commenced immediately at the site. Layout, excavation, supply of water, cement, blocks, rod, sand, chippings, etc, all commenced immediately.
Other dignitaries that attended the event include, Lady Dorah Ekpeh, Chief Dennis Anekwe, Chief Sir Clem Nwafor, Mr. Okey Nwanizoba, Hon. Nze Christian Ezenwaka, Chief Sylvester Onwudinjo(project supervisor).
