Provision of 28 sienna buses and 40 motorcycles for Neighbourhood Watch security and Vigilante group in various communities of Abakaliki L.G.A so as to ensure adequate security, peace and orderliness in all parts of the Council area, commitment of pragmatic efforts and resources that brought lasting peace to the communities and villages that were in serious conflicts and loggerheads, including Enyigba community, Agalegu Amachi village, Ndigboke village, Agbaja Unuphu village, Okpuitumo Ndunkwegu village, Inyimegu village, Motor Spare Parts Abakaliki, and Ekeru Inyimegu village, and also undertook the sponsorship of peace sensitization exercise within the border areas of Abakaliki L.G.A.

Regular payment of both the workers and retirees, and as also encouragement of hardworking among the civil servants through reward system, as demonstrated in the case of one popular Onye Fee Eze who served the council and retired without blemish and was blessed with a brand new motorcycle and undisclosed amount of money, and also appointed him as the sergeant at arm of the legislative council.

With these and many more, I think the people's Chairman does not only deserve accolades but also need the people's mandate to do more works because the reward for good work is the opportunity to do more.
