Governor of Anambra State, Professor Chukwuma Charles Soludo has flagged-off the construction of a flyover bridge in Ekwulọbịa.
Also flagged-off for construction in the location are adjoining roads, a modern bus terminal, a fuel station, a security building, a fire station, among others.
Governor Soludo noted that the Contractor had publicly acknowledged receiving a 30% upfront mobilization for the project.
He reiterated that Ekwulobia is the capital of the Old Aguata Union and for that reason development will start in the city, as well as other towns that include Oko, Umunze, Nawfija, Ufuma, Ezira, Enugu Umuonya, etc.
He also explained that the proposed flyover will ease traffic for people driving from Awka to Uga, Achina, or Imo State.
The Governor re-emphasised again that Anambra is an “A” State, and all the road projects being undertaken by the government are of the highest caliber, with a minimum 20-year warranty.
“Repairs of vehicles will decrease if standard roads are constructed throughout the state”, the Governor added.
The Governor used the occasion to remind the public to cast as many votes for APGA on Saturday, announcing that the project would be completed in 18 months time.
He called on the people of Anambra State at home and in the diaspora to participate in the upcoming national census in May this year.
