By Jeffery Opone,

The Chairman of Ukwani Local Government Council, CSP Ajede Possible has assured the people of the local government of more life-changing projects.

The chairman stated this in an interactive session/stakeholders briefing with the representatives of the people of Ukwuani, to intimate them of the achievements of his administration since inception.

Bar. Ajede stressed that his administration has been keeping to its mandate to the people by strategically initiating and executing programmes and projects that impact the people, adding that as a council boss, he has been carrying everyone along.

He said the interactive session became necessary to enlighten the people face to face on their achievements so far, pointing that his administration was not the type that announces most of its achievements.

“This government is a grassroot government and having understood the position I am occupying, I can boldly say that it’s a government of the people and when you want to interact with the people, it’s the grassroot you go to and interact with the people, as my aim is to intimate them of what my administration has done, ask them questions to know their challenges and how we can position ourselves to ensure that our people gets the dividends of democracy which we have promised our them,” CSP Ajede.

He listed out all the projects embarked upon by his administration within a period of 8 months in office and the efforts put in place to ensure that the projects were completed and commissioned as a way of marking his 100 days in office as the Council Chairman.
