He said the commissioning of roads will continue until his last day in office, saying that he is in government to affect lives positively, and thanked the State House of Assembly for the solid support given to him to perform.

Solomon Akpulonu thanked the Governor for remembering his people as the road will add economic and social values to the State and urged the people to continue to support the Governor while describing the road as strategic as it leads to Onicha Ngwa General Hospital and other link roads. They assured that the House will continue to support the Governor

Contributing, the Commissioner for Works, Elder Bob Ogu described the road as a very important road disclosing that the first 5 kilometers done already are proof of the Governor’s commitment to the people. He informed that the road will last for a minimum of 25 years and urged the beneficiaries to protect the roads, which he said is a link road.
