He said that the strengthening of the unit would lead to seamless execution of projects as well as ensure that government has value for every money spent in line with specifications.

Prince Kanu said as a responsible and responsive government, the Governor Alex Otti led administration would continue to put up measures to ensure that all funds at its disposal are utilized judiciously for the benefit of Abians and other residents.

“As a responsible and responsive government, that is the way to go to ensure that all government initiatives and projects are executed in a manner that would ensure that resources of the State are optimally deployed to achieve the best outcomes that would ensure dividends of democracy for all Abians and residents in line with all government programs and policies”

On the forthcoming free medical mission to be conducted by the Association of Nigerian Physicians in America (ANPA) next month, Prince Kanu noted that over 2,500 patients have so far registered, adding that over 5000 patients are expected to benefit from the medical mission.

“The registration of patients for the ANPA medical mission is ongoing. It will come up in April , but about a month to that date , over half the number of the patients expected to benefit from the medical mission has registered. So , what that indicates is that by the time the medical mission takes off, we would have crossed the 5,000 mark”.
