Anambra State Governor, Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo, has, in keeping of his promise, to rehabilitate and resuscitate the Obizi Water Scheme Uga, handed the facility to the firm that will handle it.

Recall that Anambra State Government had, in September 2023, embarked on inspection of some water projects in the state, with a view to revamping the moribund and non functional ones and ensuring regular availability of and access to potable water in the State.

Obizi Water Scheme Uga, located in Aguata Local Government Area of the state, is one of the water schemes the Governor recently approved their resuscitation and tasked the contractor to maintain contractual specifications and deliver on agreed period.
