Governor Okezie Ikpeazu commended the Men’s Assemblies of God Ministries Church, Umungasi Aba, off Aba Owerri Road for replicating the cement pavement technology introduced by his government in the construction of the road leading to their church
Governor Ikpeazu was speaking earlier in the day during the commissioning of the road as part of ceremonies to celebrate the church’s 2022 Men’s Day. He said he would make up the unpaid balance of the cost of constructing the hard carriageway and assured that he would asphalt the road and provide the entrance gate requested by the church. The Governor challenged other churches and organizations to emulate what this church has done.
He described the theme of their program “Stand In The Gap” as fitting, saying that the government needs more people and groups who would stand aside to help the development of the state. According to him, many of the roads he repaired are federal government roads, but he repaired them in order to improve people’s lives. He said the hands of God are upon his administration so under him Abia witnessed peace and security and asked for continued prayers from the church and expressed his confidence that tomorrow of Abia will be better than today.
Also speaking, Commissioner of Works, Barr. Bob Ogu commended the church for constructing the road with rigid pavement technology and informed that Governor Ikpeazu has repaired 80% of the roads in Aba. He assured that Governor Ikpeazu would not stop delivering projects until May 29, 2023.
Previously, the General Secretary of Men’s Ministries of the Church, Bro. Chimaobi Umechuruba thanked Governor Ikpeazu for coming to commission their route. He informed that the National Men’s Day celebration offered them the opportunity to work for God and said they had the challenge of a modern front door in their church.
