It was all joy for the people of Ankpa, Omala and Olamaboro Federal Constituency of Kogi State as the member representing the area in National Assembly, Rep. Abdullahi Ibrahim Ali Halims commissions fifteen solar powered boreholes and a three kilometer earth road in the area.
While flagging off the commissioning, the Executive Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello said that the APC led government of Nigeria and Kogi State is determined to make life meaningful for citizens at all times.
Bello, represented by the Deputy Governor, Chief Edward Onoja, stated this at Angwa-Ogebe while addressing a crowd of constituents and further noted that Rep. Halims is an inestimable asset with no mean repute and has over time proven to be the best man to represent Ankpa federal constituency since its years of existence.
