Abia State Governor, Chief Theodore Orji, has expressed happiness with the quality and progress of work at the International Conference Centre, the Shoprite in Umuahia North Local Government Area and the Old Umuahia erosion site in Umuahia South Local Government Area.

Answering questions from newsmen after visiting the projects to ascertain the progress of work, Governor Orji said that the projects are dear to him.

According to him, the projects when completed will stand the test of time and serve the people of the state, adding that the Shoprite will boost commerce in the state.

Governor Orji said he was happy that the erosion site at Old Umuahia has been brought under check as many surrounding houses would have been eaten up if left unattended to, pointing out that the government is also doing the road.

He stated that some of the legacy projects that are ready will be commissioned before he leaves office while others that have reached advanced stages of completion will be completed and commissioned by the incoming government.

He said that for him the most important thing is starting and completing the projects and not necessarily the commissioning, maintaining that government has signed an MOU with reputable companies that will manage the buildings to ensure that they last.
