Prof Chukwuma Charles Soludo, Governor of Anambra State, has stated that his administration has a deadline.
He went on to say that he dislikes excuses because there are always a dozen of them in every failure.
He said this while inspecting the 26-kilometer Ufuma-Awa-Okpeze-Ndiukwenu-Amansea Road, which is being overseen by Engr. Driekus Saayman of Stefanutti Stocks Hapel Ltd.
Soludo stated that he drove from Amansea to Ufuma to inspect the road, saying that it was supposed to be completed by December of last year according to the contract timeline.
The Governor also emphasized that he has announced the work timeline to the people and does not like making excuses when a deadline is missed.
“While the people are pleased with the pace of the work which is already at 60% completion, I’m not happy that the work hasn’t been completed up till this time.
“If a job is completed, we know that it is executed and we focus on a new project. “This is the direction our administration is taking,” Soludo stated.
According to the Governor, before any Contractor is considered for a new job, they must have completed up to 90% of their initial job.
The Governor charged them to vote for all APGA candidates in the upcoming election and to be ready for the upcoming National Census Exercise, which will begin after the elections.
Earlier, Hon. Ogochukwu Ekwueme, TC Chairman Orumba North, welcomed the Governor and recalled how Soludo visited Orumba on September 17, 2022, promising to fix the road, and today marks exactly five months. He said that the road construction is 60% complete, and that driving to Awka now takes him 30 minutes rather than the long hours it used to.
Mr. Ernest Ezeajughi, Governor Soludo’s Chief of Staff, emphasized that the only way the Orumba people can repay the Governor for the great work he has done is to vote for all APGA candidates from the Senate to the State House of Assembly.
Lady Ify Obinabo, the Commissioner for Women Affairs, stated that the Governor says and does what he says. She thanked the Governor for his efforts on behalf of the people of Orumba North and South.
