2016 CONSTITUENCY PROJECTS

Through a transparent mapping process, a total of 580 women, youths and physically challenged persons were selected from various wards within the Anachocha/Dunukofia/Njikoka federal constituency as beneficiaries to receive a range of tools and equipment to either apply to already existing vocations or use to chart entirely new business paths. The beneficiaries received: cars, tricycles (Keke-Napep), motorcycles, sewing machines, hair dryers, grinding machines and wheel chairs. The empowerment exercise provided the beneficiaries with viable sources of income which will help them strive to improve their quality of lives.

on a 1.5 km stretch of road in Enugu-ukwu, Njikoka LGA. The street lights are of direct benefit to five communities: Umuatulu, Umuatuora, Umuogu, Enuagu and Akiyi. Asides from improving the general aesthetics of the locale, the lights also allow for safer passage of indigenes travelling at night by effectively making the environment uncomfortable for criminals to lurk.

In order to promote good hygiene and sanitation, and avert the spread of preventable diseases, motorized bore-holes with over-head tanks and generators (to ensure twenty-four hours water supply) were installed at Oye market in Nimo, Njikoka LGA; Enuagu village in Enugu-ukwu, Njikoka LGA; Umunnachi, Dunukofia LGA; and Agulu, Anaocha LGA. Prior to the intervention, market users and villagers in these locations had to source for water from distant places and at exorbitant costs. The poor access to water encouraged questionable hygiene practices which meant that people were more susceptible to diseases. Currently, with the Oye market water supply catering to at least 6000 people; the Enuagu, Umunnachi and Agulu water supplies catering to 2000- 5000 people respectively, the general health and well-being of the people are safeguarded.

The quarters, which comprise of a three-bedroom bungalow, a two-bedroom bungalow, a generator shed and a gate house in a fenced compound within the Primary Healthcare premises, provides doctors attached to the health facility with respectable and free residence. The end-goal here is two-pronged: first, by providing free accommodations to doctors, the monetary and psychological stress of finding adequate housing is eliminated thereby boosting their morale to focus better on delivering excellent care to patients. Second, in situations of emergency, the doctors will always be on hand to attend to the patients’ needs.
