Addressing the mammoth crowd that trooped out to welcome the people’s governor at Orie Ogbunka market square, the governor announced that at least, a distance of 3km of the road would be asphalted on the above mentioned road in the Orumba council area of the state before this year’s rainy season sets in.
The 21.21 km road network with four bridges was awarded late last year and the contractor was consequently mobilized by the administration. The working governor explained.
The governor observed during the visit that earthwork has been achieved on a 5km stretch and work is still progressing further.
Gov Obiano noted that the road will be executed in line with the design specifications, quality and standards that meet the International best practices of civil engineering technology, and affirmed that the completion of the road will unlock the agricultural and solid mineral potentials of the communities, which will invariably key into the agricultural revolution policy of the state with the associated economic boost, as it cuts across five major food basket communities of the Orumba area and Anambra south senatorial zone. He further explained that the visit was to assess the level of work the contractor has achieved with the money he released for them last year and that the visit was a surprised one. He cheerfully expressed satisfaction with the pace and quality of work already executed on the road.
He commended people of the community for their cooperation with the contractor and urged them to sustain the support to enable the contractor deliver the Project on schedule.
He also expressed his appreciation for the excellent performance of the Communities along the road alignment in the just concluded poll. It’s pertinent to note that Ogbunka ward 2 (Hon Commissioner Frank Offor’s ward) top the chart in Orumba South, during the last gubernatorial election.
This road when completed will be a major by-pass to the ever busy Nkwo Umunze round about especially during the festive periods. And more also to the motorists traveling to the neighboring states of Abia, Imo, Enugu and Rivers states.
The road will also assist the farmers in the adjoining communities to evacuate their farm produce and make it readily available in the urban cities. Willie is working and the people of Orumba North and South are happy. Let us all support him…
