The annual development grant to Anambra communities has been increased to N4 billion, the State Governor, Willie Obiano, announced yesterday. Last year, N20m development grant was given to each of the 188 communities in the state under the choose-your-project community initiative.

Obiano announced the increment at Eziowelle community in Idemili North Local Council during a special reception put in place to confer him with the title of “Omelu K’Okwulu” by the community.

Obiano used the occasion to commission an ultra-modern 3,000-capacity civic centre structured to accommodate a magistrate’s court, electronic library, an auditorium and other conveniences. He said that the mass-return recorded in Eziowelle community was as a result of the peace and security which has come to stay in the state.

He commended them for the self-help efforts, especially the construction of the edifice which, he noted, would encourage social activities and promote effective learning.

President General of Eziowelle, Mr. Titus Akpudo, commended the governor for his developmental blueprint and pleaded for the construction of roads linking Umunnachi and Nimo and other neighboring towns to alleviate the suffering of the people and boost social and economic activities in the affected areas.

On his part, the chairman of the occasion, Chief Raz Okafor, said the community had set aside the day to celebrate their unity and progress, adding that this year’s event was remarkable due to tremendous return of their people.
