Ebonyi State Government has revealed that it will establish a technology village in Uburu, Ohaozara Local Government Area of the state.
New Telegraph reports that Governor David Umahi announced this during the Umunaga-Ikenegwu Union Day held at his compound in Uburu.
Umahi, who thanked the people for their strong support to his administration, said that the technology village would provide Ebonyi youths who were technically gifted to hone their skills, adding that it would give fillip to his administration’s desire to develop the state in all sectors through technology.
He noted that with the technology village, the state would become one of the major hubs for inventive activities in the country.
The governor assured the people that the on-going reconstruction of the Amasiri-Okposi-Uburu road would be completed this year, while the construction of most of the internal roads in Uburu and adjoining communities would commence soon.
Umahi also announced that the construction of water project to serve the entire Uburu and beyond had already started. He affirmed that his administration was poised to establish rice mill and other industries on the piece of land already acquired by the Ikenegwu union.
The governor called on the people of Uburu to embark on large scale farming, which, he said, had become the policy thrust of his administration, adding that mechanised farming would be in vogue in the state.
