Kogi community spends N12.8m on projects

Ogidi Community in Ijumu Local Government of Kogi State has expended the sum of N12.8m on some  projects that will  enhance socio-economic status of the people of the area.

The President of Ogidi Development Association (ODA), Mr Femi  Oloruntoba who stated this at the Annual General Meeting of the association, said the projects were executed in the last two years.

According to him, the  projects include, purchase of a transformer, renovation of Ogidi Community Secondary School, grading of Ogidi-Kabba road as well as  the renovation and furnishing of the community police station, including purchase of two motorcycles for police in the community.

He added that the plea of ODA to the federal government over the deplorable condition of Ogidi-Iyara road  has yielded result, as it is currently undergoing rehabilitation by FERMA.

The president, therefore, urged the indigenes both at home and abroad to show more interest in the development of the community so as to attract investors.

He also called on the state and federal government to assist the town by implementing projects that will uplift the standard of living of the residents.
