The over N2billion Adada River Dam embarked upon by the Federal Ministry of Water Resources in the state would be completed and delivered for use in July next year and it would generate and hold some 1.3m cubic metre of water all year round.
Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi who inspected the dam project at the weekend also inaugurated a massive network of rural electrification project started early in June this year a few days after he assumed office and executed by the state’s Rural Electrification Board.
Representative of the water resources ministry, Robert Umezulike, a chief hydrologist who was at the site of the dam at the weekend when Governor Ugwuanyi inspected the mega project and inaugurated a massive rural electrification project assured that when completed, the facility would power the greater Nsukka water scheme which has been in the pipeline in the past decades.
To strengthen the process of enhancing the project and boost economic activities in the vast rural communities that cut across Udi, Uzo- Uwani and Igbo- Etiti local council areas of the state, the governor inaugurated a completed massive rural electrification projected which would help in powering the dam on completion.
Also the completion of the dam in 2016 and the present completion of the rural electrification project which would now ease up pressure from other electricity facilities around the Nsukka zone would further the resolve of the governor to upgrade the status of Nsukka to a befitting university town.
