Women of Ezema Mgbagbu-owa community in Ezeagu Local Government of Enugu State have promised to complete the community’s town hall project abandoned 40 years ago.

The women yesterday launched N20 million funds to complete the hall project in the community.

The hall, when completed, is expected to serve as human capital development centre for women and youths of the area, according to the leader of Ezema Women, Mrs. Gloria Elobuike.

She said the hall project had been on for over 40 years, due to paucity of fund.

Elobuike said the hall, which was initiated by the women, was the first ever in the whole of Mgbagbu-owa, adding that most of the women that initiated the project had died, while those alive yearned to see the hall completed in their life.

Worried by the development, she said the women executive members were working hard to ensure that the hall was not only completed in the shortest period, but put to use for the development of the people.

“It is against this odd that we invited distinguished sons, daughters and friends of the community to launch the N20 million for the completion of the hall.

“Today marks another milestone in the annals of our history towards the development of our community and with the determination of our people.

“It will bring an end to the over 40 years journey of Ezema women towards the possession of a functional town hall.

“The hall when completed will serve as a pride of place for our people in terms of vocational, social and cultural integration of our population.

“It will open a new chapter in our community development and place us on equal footing with our neighbouring communities that are already enjoying the benefits of similar facilities,” Elobuike said.

The Event Coordinator, Mrs. Rose Ukamaka Ohaeche, said the fundraising became necessary as the women were exhausted financially and needed assistance from their husbands, sons, daughters and friends.

“This project started when our chairperson was still a young girl, but didn’t know she will grow up and still be the chairperson to continue building this project.

“Though, we are launching N20 million, looking at the cost of things, the amount cannot really do what we wanted, hence hoping that our guests will donate more for us,” she said.
