By Sunny A. David, Nnewi
Governor Willie Obiano has called on communities across the state to always support contractors handling various developmental projects and take full ownership for posterity.
Governor Obiano made the call while inspecting Isingwu-Oraifite-Akwa-Ozubulu road project to ascertain the level and quality of work done so far.
Governor Obiano, who expressed satisfaction with the quality of work done at the site, announced that street lights and other road furniture will be installed on completion of the project.
He however urged Ndi Anambra to give APGA candidates their maximum support in the forthcoming general elections for more dividends of good governance.
The Commissioner for Works, Engineer Marcel Ifejiofor said that the Ministry is monitoring the project to ensure strict compliance.
Also speaking, the contractor handling the project, Prince Chuks Okolo testified that Governor Obiano has fully mobilized them to site and appealed to the people of Oraifite to be patient and work with them, assuring of one kilometer asphalting by the end of January next year.
Some stakeholders in the area including Chief Jude Emecheta and Rommy Ezeonwuka applauded the Governor for fulfilling his campaign promises. It should be recalled that the five- point- six- kilometer road awarded in March two thousand and eighteen has a spur to Ose Umuodum and St Mary Catholic Church Isingwu.
