Rev. David Okechukwu Chikezie Onuoha, lauded the rescue mission administration in the state for initiating monumental projects across the nooks and crannies of the state.

According to the cleric, the number of verifiable projects scattered across the state by the present administration is an indication that the current government in the state is people oriented.

He further stated that the state government was fully committed to turning around the fortunes of Zone through the provision of massive infrastructural and human capital developments across the state, adding that the 2014 budget estimate of the state would make funds available for the smooth take- off of the State College of Education, Ihitte –Uboma, stressing that such feat would shore-up rapid development of Okigwe zone.
