The state House of Assembly has received the preliminary report of the House Joint committee on Industry, Trade, commerce, and health on a bill for a law to ensure the safety and well- being of factory workers and all persons present at factories from the chairman of the committee, Dr Pete Ibida.

The House received the report during yesterday’s plenary in Awka.
While presenting the report to the House , Dr Ibida revealed that the bill when passed into law will guarantee the safety of factory workers in the state.

On his part, the member representing Aguata Two constituency, Hon. Ikem Uzoezie commended the Anambra State Road Maintenance Agency for fixing the bad portions of the bye pass Nkwo -Igboukwu road.

Also at plenary, the Deputy Speaker, Sir Harford Oseke who presided over the plenary, urged the Anambra State Road Maintenance Agency to do palliative work on the erosion site opposite St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Umuawulu, as directed by the state Governor adding that the erosion is threatening to cut the road in two and make the area inaccessible.

Also speaking, their Awka South One Constituency Counterpart, Dr. Nnamdi Okafor urged the Executive Arm of Government to arrest the inconveniences caused by flood menace at Ogbunagu, Amaikwo, Umulogbu and the Zik Avenue roads whenever there is torrential rainfall.
According to Dr. Okafor most houses in the areas are usually submerged by flood whenever it rains heavily, thereby make it difficult for the occupants of such buildings to go about their legitimate businesses.
