Anambra State Governor Willie Obiano has said that low cost of governance and improved Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) have helped in running the state. The state is one of the few where workers are paid promptly despite the economic crunch. Also, three flyovers being built in Awka, the state capital, will be completed in May.
The governor said this while inspecting some projects, including the flyovers and the longest bridge in the Southeast under construction at Otuocha in Anambra East council.
He maintained that the flyovers would be built according to design, complete with flowerbeds, suspenders and other enhancements.
The site manger of the construction firm (ADC), Mr. Joseph Yusuf, commended the Governor for showing great commitment to the projects.
While assuring that the bridges would be completed on scheduled, adding that the Kwata flyover would be the biggest of the three.
Yusuf also, assured that the company would do everything within its powers to ensure that it did not over shoot the deadline.
At Aguleri-Otu where the longest bridge is being constructed, Obiano said that the 47km Odene-Eziagulu-Aguleri-Otu-Orient Petroleum Road project that hosts the bridge would take two years to complete.
This according to him was because of the treacherous nature of the terrain, adding that on completion, the road would transform the fortunes of the community and its neighbours. (The Nation)
