OWERRI – Chief Cypril Nnodim Metu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo State, and human rights activist, has backed Governor Rochas Okorocha’s policy, which requires Government Liaison Officers (GLOs) to use their buildings as collateral to access the N10 million loan for industrial development of the 305 electoral wards in the state.

Metu, who is the GLO for Irette/Orogwe in the Owerri West Council Area, who spoke during a chat with newsmen, argued that such measure would ensure efficiency and prudence in the management of the loan.

According to him, it would equally make the GLOs to sit up and be on their toes to monitor and supervise the day-to-day running of the business.

Metu said that the executives of the government community council in the affected communities had discussed what to use the loan for and had proposed fishery, piggery and poultry farming for which they had already carried out feasibility studies and are convinced beyond all reasonable doubts that the business would flourish in the area. He expressed delight at the success so far made by the community government council in the state, which has now disillusioned critics of the administrative innovation.

The GLO, who gave kudos to Governor Okorocha for the rehabilitation of the Irete-Ndegwu Road pleaded that the gesture be extend to Orogwe –Ndegwu Road to ease the transportation difficulties of the people.

He also pleaded with the governor to provide good access roads at the new Industrial Layout in Irete, near Owerri, in view of the heavy presence of government establishments and corporate organisations in the area.

He similarly pleaded with the governor to order the contractor handling the Model Storey School Building at the Community School Irete, back to site and to complete the abandoned project, regretting that windstorm had on two separate occasions blown off the roof of the school building.
