Residents of American Quarters Community Onitsha North Local Government Area of Anambra State had cause to smile recently when the senator representing Anambra North Senatorial Zone, Senator Stella Oduah donated a good number of solar street lights to illuminate the streets and other dark spots in the area.
It was a promise fulfilled as the contractors swung into action and commenced installation of the concrete base for the light poles. The senator also made a cash donation of N100,000 for a minor maintenance work to assist the community. Receiving both the contractors and the money,the Chairman of American Quarters Community, Mr Obinna Areh, commended the senator for quick redemption of her pledge.
