Governor Ugwuanyi stated this while addressing a delegation from Mburubu community in Nkanu East local government area of the state at the Government House.

He further stated that the decision to concentrate development in the rural areas became imperative because of the urgent need to uplift the level of development at the grassroots.
He urged them to continue to offer special prayers for improvement of revenue of the state so that government will be able to attend to their needs, adding that it was as a result of lack of link road network from Amechi Idodo to Amagunze, the headquarter of Nkanu East local government area that his administration decided to reconstruct the all important Inyaba bridge.
