Enugu State governor, Peter Mbah has promised to establish a mobile telecommunication base station in Ugbene Ajima community in Uzo-Uwani local government area. The aim is to address the lack of mobile network and the challenge of insecurity in the area.

Governor Mbah made this promise during an interactive session with the state’s people on the social media platform X, marking his one year in office.

During the interaction, a native of Ugbene Ajima community, Ebuka Michael raised concerns about the security of lives and property in rural communities. He emphasised that the state government’s efforts to improve agriculture and security would be ineffective without access to a mobile network for rural communities. He mentioned that Ugbene Ajima community, located near Nimbo, has never had a mobile network since its creation, posing a risk, especially in the wake of recent attacks in neighbouring communities.

Ebuka highlighted that the absence of mobile network makes it challenging to communicate with security agencies and coordinate local security efforts. He also mentioned cases of farmers being killed in their farmlands without any response from security agencies due to the inability to alert them promptly.

In response, the governor assured the community that a base station would be installed to enhance mobile network access. He acknowledged the issue and committed to taking action, stating, “I am going to ensure that action is taken to install a base station around that area so that there will be a network for communities living around that area.”

The chairman of Concerned People of Ugbene Ajima, Tony Eze expressed optimism about the governor’s promise, describing it as a timely intervention that would unlock development opportunities and boost local security efforts for the community.

Ugbene Ajima is a rural community located 15 kilometres from Nsukka township, bordering Eziani, Nkpologu, Abbi, Nrobo and Nimbo communities. The lack of mobile network has hindered the community’s development despite its agricultural potential and strategic location along the Eziani-Ugbene-Ajima-Nimbo Road.
