The Country Director of AFD, Pascal Grangereau has noted that RAMP project failed under the Past Administration of Owelle Rochas Okorocha due to dubious demands by the then Governor and officials of the Government.

Mr Grangereau while speaking at the flag off of the Construction of rural roads in the State, thanked the Governor, Emeka Ihedioha, for making possible in just two months, what they could not achieve in the entire 8 years of the past administration.

In his words, “When we came here some months back, we were told that for us to carry out our project, we will settle the entire community, settle the Traditional Rulers, Youths and other bodies itemized by the officials of the Former Governor”.

Speaking further, “we were asked to buy a property for the former Governor or money in like sum. We were also asked to increase the counterpart fund so that when the Development agencies take theirs, the Government officials will have what to work with. These situations become unbearable for us and we had to leave.”

“Coming back here months later to see that a Governor can agree to pay His own share of counterpart fund without making any demand from us gives us joy,” He noted.

Mr Grangereau assured that the projects will be delivered in due time and of great quality. He commended the Governor for His “Development minded” nature and assured him of the commitment of Development Agencies in his Rebuild Imo Agenda.
