Amaeke Abam community in Arochukwu Local Government Area of Abia State has commended the lawmaker representing Abia North Senatorial District, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, for embarking on some developmental projects in their community.
The community in a letter of appreciation to the former Abia State Governor dated 2nd September, 2023 and signed by Pastor Kalu Isong, President General Amaeke Abam Development Union, and Mr. Emeka Emeaba, Secretary General of Amaeke Abam Development Union, expressed their gratitude to Senator Orji Kalu for renovating and refurbishing Central School Amaeke Abam.

Our correspondent reports that the lawmaker has facilitated the reconstruction and furnishing of over 50 schools across the five local government areas of Abia North Senatorial District.
The former Abia State governor last month described the school project as a demonstration of his commitment to the development of education in his constituency, stressing that education remained the bedrock of any development.
Kalu, the Chairman Senate Committee on Privatisation, expressed delight at the school projects, stating that improved livelihood for the people of Abia North remains his priority.
He said it was important to invest in the education of the youths, noting that construction of the classroom blocks is part of his efforts to improve the quality of education in Abia North Senatorial District.
According to a statement by Kalu’s media office, the new classrooms would provide a conducive learning environment for the students and improve the standard of education in their communities.
Senator Kalu promised to continue working tirelessly to ensure the needs of his constituents are met.
“I remain committed to serving my people. I will continue to work for them tirelessly because it is in me to serve the people,” he said.
The senator had earlier this year flagged off another phase of distribution of educational materials to schools across the five local government areas of Abia North..
