World Bank spends N450m on 71 Imo communities

| January 29, 2013 | 0 Comments

THE World Bank, through the Imo State Agency for Community Development Project (ISA-CSDP), has disbursed about N450 million for rural development projects to about 71 communities in Imo State in the last four years, General Manager of the agency, Mr. Augustine Amah, has disclosed.

Briefing journalists on Monday evening in Owerri, Amah disclosed that the agency, which kicked off among the 26 participating states in the country in November 2009, is expected to wind up in December this year.

According to him, the World Bank contributed $5 million to Imo State (N750 million) while the state government was expected to provide counterpart fund of N100 million annually. He regretted that only N100 million was contributed by the Imo State government in 2009, leaving a backlog of about N400 million, a situation, he lamented, has marred adding life values to expected development in terms of “felt needs” projects of the communities in the state.








He listed projects executed as building and renovation of primary and secondary schools, health centres, rural electricity projects, markets, skills acquisition centres, civic and town halls, access roads drainage/erosion control, toilets, water boreholes, culverts and construction of lock-up shops, among others.
