Commissioning the quarters recently, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Project Monitoring, Prince MacDonald Akanno, thanked the legislator for building the quarters.
He promised to provide water borehole in the quarters as part of his own contribution to the development of the area.
Speaking at the occasion, the caretaker committee chairman of Nwangele, Barr. Celestine Etumkemka, emphasized the need for collaboration between the council and the state government in the provision of the people’s needs.

He hoped that the gesture would go a long way to facilitate the effort of the state government in ensuring effective healthcare delivery.
