Earlier today, as part of efforts to fulfilling his campaign promises to the good people of Bomadi Local Government Area, its Executive Chairman, Hon. William Angadi visited the leadership of Bomadi Federated Community to brainstorm on ways to improve the power situation in the council area.
Emokpo Eniye – Special Adviser On Media & Publicity to Hon. William Angadi, Chairman Bomadi LGA reported that the meeting was borne out of the council boss’ desire to improve the electricity situation of Bomadi LGA and since Bomadi serves as the headquarters, he deemed it fit to call for an expanded town hall meeting.
“Basically, what we want and why we are here is for you all present to agree with us and our policies so that we can help you enjoy power.
“I understand that most of you don’t want to pay the bills associated with giving you light, how then can we improve this situation? You have to pay to get that wish you seek, therefore I urge us all to have a rethink and be ready to pay for the power we all yearn for.
“I am truly ready to work for you, serve you to the best of my ability and I expect that you as a people should be ready to give for you to receive.”
Those who spoke at the meeting gave their various ideas on how the electricity situation will improve and many of the speakers gave beautiful suggestions and ideas. The ideas and suggestions were duly noted by the council boss.
Security was another topical issue discussed at the expanded townhall leadership meeting. Insecurity has become a big challenge in Nigeria but if only community leaders are ready to curb this menace, our society will be peaceful. Going by recent happenings, Bomadi town is not exceptional in this light. After extensive discourse on the security problems facing the community, better formed resolutions were adopted by all stakeholders in the meeting.
Furthermore, Angadi mentioned the forthcoming flood. He urged the people of Bomadi Community to prepare with the best options to curb this environmental plight. He stated that with the projections by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), this year’s flood will be more serious than previous floods.
“We are envisaging a more serious flooding season and you must stop blocking all waterways, open up channels in your areas and stop throwing dirts everywhere so that there will be free flow of water while the flood season lasts”, Angadi said.
The stakeholders meeting which was held at the Bomadi Community Town Hall, had in attendance leaders from the Community Wing, Youth Wing, and Women wing. Spiritual fathers also attended, with His Lordship, Most Rev. Dr. Hyacinth Oroko Egbebo MSP Bishop of Bomadi Diocese heading the team of spiritual fathers.
