This is even as the former Abia State governor promised that he would attract more dividends of democracy even beyond his immediate constituency of Abia North.
Immediately the Senate President’s aircraft touched down at the Akanu Ibiam International airport in Enugu, yesterday, he in company with his host, Kalu, moved straight to Abia North for the commissioning of the projects as natives of the communities where the projects were sited sang and danced in appreciation.
Some of the projects commissioned include the 2km Umumara-Uturu Road, the 2km Obi Chima Road in Isiukwuato LGA, the 2km Umu Imenyi, 2km Amankalu Alayi, 2km Igbere and the 4km Ukwu Rubber-Amaokwe Item Roads, all in Bende Local Government Area.
Other projects commissioned by the Senate President were three boreholes in Agbaja, Amuri and Enugwu all in Nkporo, Ohafia LGA and the 7.5km road in Agbaja Nkporo.
Commissioning the projects, the Senate President commended Kalu for being one of the senators who have represented their people very well at the Senate by attracting massive developmental projects to the their constituents even when they were not in the executive arm of government.
Pouring encomiums on the Senate Chief Whip for his political dexterity, Lawan said: “Kalu is one politician who doesn’t believe in theory, but practical achievement, and I believe that has informed why we are gathered here.
“Abia North Senatorial District is special in the sense that apart from having Kalu who has made indelible marks in his three years of being in the Senate, the zone also has representatives who are in charge in the National Assembly.”

Kalu had earlier told his people that the projects commissioned were the promises he made during the electioneering in 2019, noting that upon their completion, he decided to bring the Senate President to witness their commissioning.
The former governor promised to attract more projects even beyond his immediate constituency of Abia North.
He said plans were on to construct two new roads in shoe line of the Ariaria International Market in Aba before the end of the year, adding that this would be in fulfilment of his earlier promise to the traders when he visited the market.
