I-WITNESS on Remodeling of Prof. Dora Akunyili Women Development Centre.
Remodeling the Prof. Dora Akunyili Women Development Centre was one project long over due to undertake. Thank goodness that Gov. Willie Obiano is doing it now.
The I-WITNESS CREW Chat unearthed startling revelations about this centre when it engaged Engr. Emeka Ezenwanne, Commissioner for Housing in a Chat recently.
The Commissioner informed the CREW that the ministry re-designed the architectural designs of the structures within the centre including the addition of a Two Storey Office Complex under construction at the Centre.
Said ‘ this stage was formerly wooden, we dismantled it, installed re-inforced concrete slab to finish with granite marble tiles. You can see it’s shining now, no more carpet rugs!.’
‘ There was no Executive car pot nor flower pots before. The new design conveyed it with parapet and common demarcation belts for the roofing which has given it new millennial looks.
‘ The main auditorium seats about 1000 persons. We changed all the auditorium doors; the Air Conditioners and most importantly we pulled down the old suspended ceiling structure and replaced it with plaster of Paris (POP) with LED lightening fittings. Infact, it was a total makeover’
‘ In the coming months, we shall take delivery of two storey Office Complex which shall house the Ministry of Women, Children and Social Welfare and the Office of the First Lady. When this is done, we shall pull down the old bungalows around here and landscape the entire centre’ Engr. Ezenwanne concluded.
Ndi b’anyi, the I-WITNESS CREW can confirm that all the Commissioner said about the Centre are true.
The chat was revealing and educating.
