By Alphonsus Nweze, Onitsha

Amidst accusation of high handedness by Anambra people, the residents of Onitsha especially Fegge went into jubilation as Governor Charles Soludo commissioned two critical roads in the area.

Commissioning the Niger Street leading from Bridgehead to Main Market and Porthacourt Road, the Governor vowed that his government would not rest until the commercial town of Onitsha regains its lost glory in infrastructural facilities and safety of lives and property.

The Governor said that in his last two years he had held sway as the Governor of Anambra State, his Government has completed 247 km of roads in the entire State.

He noted that the two roads commissioned on Wednesday are very critical to the economic viability of the commercial town, stating that Niger Street leads to Main Market, while no one can talk of Fegge without Port-Harcourt Road.

Soludo said that was the more reason, he was deliberate in his bid to bring back life and increased economic activities in Onitsha, expressing pleasure that traders are now coming back to shop in Onitsha.

” If Onitsha doesn’t work, Anambra State would not work, and South East would also not work,” said Soludo while stressing the importance of Onitsha.

Emphasizing the need for the people to preserve the road, Prof Soludo said in the next few weeks more roads would be commissioned such as Zik Avenue-Ochanja Round About,, Moore Street- Upper Iweka, Miss Elems and others.

The chairman of Onitsha South Local Government Area, Chief Emeka Orji expressed his elation over the completion and commissioning of the roads in his domain.

He said Governor Soludo’s effort to give the State facelift on roads affects every nook and crannies of the State but the emphasis seemed to to be higher on Onitsha due to its economic importance.

He noted that anything that happened in Onitsha affects the entire state because it is the cash cow of the state.
