imo Govt donates vehicle for rural dev projects

Imo State government has indicated its preparedness to consolidate its efforts in rural development through the Rural Access and Mobility Project (RAMP).
The state’s Deputy Governor, Prince Eze Madumere, stated this, recently, when he handed over a utility vehicle to the state coordinator of RAMP in Imo, Engr. John Uzor, for use by the project’s implementation unit.
Prince Madumere emphasized that the state government’s effort towards industrialization, especially in agriculture, would be boosted by RAMP, adding that the project would help create a conducive environment agricultural for investment in the state.
He said that the project was important to the present administration which has a policy to make communities the hub of investment and business activities, and that the project will facilitate agricultural activities in the rural areas.
While thanking Imo State government first’s efforts in ensuring that it meets the requirement for RAMP, the coordinator promised to ensure the vehicle is used for its intended purposes.
RAMP is jointly financed by the World Bank and a French development agency which focuses on rural development, especially roads, chiefly to ensure easy transportation of farm produce and development of agro-based industries in the rural areas which ultimately reduces rural-urban migration.
