In order to canvass votes from the Ogbaru Constituency, Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo joined thousands of APGA supporters earlier today.
Additionally, Governor Soludo took advantage of the occasion to officially launch the construction of the 11.37-kilometer Atani to Ozubulu road, which includes a pedestrian bridge.
The road will be finished in 18 months.
“What we have come for is to fulfill the promise we made throughout the campaigns,” the governor remarked when speaking at the event.
He continued by saying: “We started our first project at Ogbaru.
“But I must stress that you citizens should band together to save local government infrastructure.
The contractor mobilized to the location of one of the roads we granted, but was agitated and chased away by youngsters. The Governor reiterated that even then, it will be completed.
We are already on this route because, as you all informed me, it is strategically important for Atani. Because Ogbaru deserves nothing less than the best, we want to finish the road once and for all.
“We promise to finish building this road.
The Governor pledged, “We will still get down there for Ogwuikpele, Osamalla, and the rest from where food is being evacuated.
He thanked the locals for their support and urged them to vote for all APGA candidates in order to show their continued support for him.
According to the Commissioner for Works, Engr. Ifeanyi Okoma, the Governor had always considered connecting Atani and Ozubulu.
“The height of the road is high since flooding is a common problem here.”
Engineer Okoma made note of the road’s stone foundation, cement stabilization, 20-year warranty, and 18-month completion schedule.
Governor Soludo is an action man, according to the chairman of the transition committee for the Ogbaru Council Area, Hon. Paschal Anigbunam, who also praised the governor for having a stake in the community since at least 2010.
The Governor visited Okpoko a day after being sworn in, and he also started nine roads in the hamlet of Okpoko.
“The Governor has the support of the Ogbaru people. With our votes, we should back the current administration.” He went on to say
