He said other areas where water does not reticulate, is as a result of water pipes that were damaged during the Urban Renewal Pprogramme of the past administration. He revealed that the State government has taken measures to replace such damaged water pipes, in order for every street within the municipality to get regular portable water.

Confirming the statement of the ISWC, the Director, Water Services in the Ministry of Water Resources and Power, Engr. Victor Agunobi admitted that water has been restored at the State Secretariat, located along Owerri- Port Harcourt Road, since Governor Uzodimma rehabilitated the water scheme.

“The importance of the water scheme at the Secretariat cannot be overemphasized as workers seem to be happy that water and power have returned at the Secretariat” he said

In his contributions, the Director, Electrical Services, Ministry of Power and Water Resources, Engr. Basil Okolie said “ Governor Uzodimma came and rehabilitated the dilapidated generator that powers the water scheme.

“The Generator also generates power at 6 blocks of the Secretariat. In the past, the Secretariat has no power nor water. Uzodimma has done well in 2 years of governance and he merits my support”. he said.
