Anambra State Governor, Professor Chukwuma Soludo, has flagged-off the construction of 3.2 kilometers Okpunoeze-Nnewi Hotel Road.
Also flagged-off was the 2.2 kilometer Isaho Umuezeogu-NAUTH (Teaching Hospital Permanent site) Road.
Ikengaonline gathered that Benejaf International Limited is the Contractor in charge of the road projects, while Maintech Engineering Consult is the consultant.
Performing the flag-offs, Governor Soludo promised to intervene in Nnewi major markets to transform them into modern markets fit for the twenty-first century.
The Governor described Nnewi as the commercial capital of Anambra South and thus requires a lot of work, acknowledging the difficulties which people face on a daily basis as a result of the poor condition of the road.
“Ndị Anambra employed me to work and that is exactly what I am doing. We pay contractors 30-50% as mobilisation. As agreed, the road will be completed on December 5, 2023,” Governor Soludo stressed.
The Governor who noted that the late Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu was APGA’s first National leader, recalled that APGA Government is responsible for the road projects in Nnewi.
He however wondered why some people are planning to demolish the house they had built over the years, urging the people to deliver APGA candidates in the upcoming House of Assembly elections.
The Commissioner for Industry, Dr. Obinna Ngonadi recalled that Governor Soludo has demonstrated love for the people of the Community, adding that the road Flag-off represents only less than five percent of what the Governor intends to do for the people.
