Enugu – Governor Peter Mbah if Enugu State says the government has ensured the production of over 25 million litres of water daily at Ninth Mile.
Speaking on a radio broadcast to mark his 100 days as governor, Mbah noted that the volume is the most Enugu achieved in the last 20 years.
He noted that his government is poised to have up to 70 million liters daily by the end of next month.
“At this rate, we are ahead of the curve in our race to deliver water to Ndi Enugu by the end of November which will mark 180 days since our inauguration, in line with our promise.
“In the area of pension and gratuity payments, we have been able to reconfirm all pending pension and gratuity payments, and payments of arrears have since been started. In addition, we have commenced the clean-up and overhaul of all outstanding pensions and gratuities to local government workers and primary school teachers.
“We have also commenced the review of the Enugu Pension Law with a view to adopting the Contributory Pension Scheme in Enugu State so as to ensure that we move away from the challenges encountered with the current problematic defined benefits schemes in operation in the State.
“During these 100 days most importantly, we have done a lot of thoughtful planning to lay the groundwork for some of the rapid progress which Ndi Enugu can look forward to in the near future.”
