Honourable Henry Nwawuba, representing Mbaitolu/Ikeduru federal constituency of Imo State at the Green chamber has proven that his ingenuity and political sagacity is just for swindling of funds and personal enrichment as opposed to serving his people by providing the infrastructural and basic amenities needed for his constituency.
Information on our News desk sourced from a community of active citizens tracking the implementation of government projects popularly known as Tracka has it that the Honorable Member during the 8th assembly, in 2018 nominated the sum of N10Million for the Construction of a VIP Toilet with Borehole in Orie Mbieri. The project which was awarded to Jeflon Engineering Company Limited; a company with no details on the Corporate Affairs Commission’s website presumably as it was used as a duct to siphon funds with the Imo River Basin Development Agency, Anambra, assigned as the supervising agency was surprisingly marked as completed.
However, sources who visited the supposed completed project squealed to SecretReporters that there was no trace of a toilet let alone of a VIP toilet in the area except for a shabbily constructed solar-powered borehole done with what can only be described as sub-standard materials.
A knowledgable sources in the building and sales of toilet and borehole facilities also revealed that the estimated cost of installing a tank, solar panel and fittings, metal scaffold, tap heads, toilet pipe, and tiles finish purchases cannot be more than about N3,000,000 (Three Million Naira) while the drilling cost for a heavy duty borehole was estimated to be between N120,000 to N650,000 in the area.
Residents in the community in expressing their disappointment at the daylight robbery carried out by Henry Nwawuba stated that despite the fact that the lawmaker boasts of numerous achievements in years of representing his constituents, most towns in the area still suffer greatly from lack of potable water, poor road networks which can undoubtedly be described as the worst in the country especially since the rains started.
With the recent appointment of the Honourable Member as the Deputy Chairman on Niger Delta Affairs in the 9th assembly, critics believe that there will be no significant development in the area as the lawmaker is a misfit having no business in governance.
