Why Abia Central Needs Rep. Sam Onuigbo Part 5: Water and Health
According to Loren Eiseley, “If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.” More than that water also plays a part in the health of people. Health as we know, is very critical as it is an essential foundation for any human being to do anything. The absence of good health forecloses any attempt at personal or community development.
Rep. Sam Onuigbo, member representing Ikwuano/Umuahia North/Umuahia South Federal Constituency, and the Abia Central Senatorial candidate of the APC, fully aware of the importance of water and health to the overall development of his people, ensured that part of his representation was dedicated to addressing health and potable water issues for his constituents.
Here are some of the efforts made by Rep. Onuigbo to address health and water issues in Ikwuano/Umuahia North/Umuahia South Federal Constituency:
— Water project in Obunta Oboro, Ikwuano LGA.
—Water project in Inyila Ibere, Ikwuano LGA.

As he stated while discussing his vision for Abia Central, Rep. Onuigbo focuses on addressing different critical sectors whose functionality will ultimately coalesce to engender a functional society for everyone.
Abia Central cannot afford to miss such a visionary.
