The Senator representing Abia North Senatorial District, Orji Uzor Kalu has sunk boreholes in Ohafia Local Government Area to alleviate the plight of residents who travel far distance in search of potable water.
Our correspondent reports that the boreholes are located at Federal Government College Ebem and Market Square, Amaoba section of Amaekpu Ohafia.
A community leader from Ohafia, Chief James Ndukwe said that the water project would minimise the level at which residents contract water-related diseases.
He explained that the boreholes would be a source of potable water, not only for the immediate communities, but other adjoining communities too.
Ndukwe acknowledged Kalu as an irrepressible democrat who has continued to demonstrate uncommon vision and rare courage in working for the people of Abia North senatorial district and Nigeria at large.
He noted that Senator Kalu has done so much for the people of Ohafia since the return of democracy in 1999 more than any other political leader.
