He stated Okowa award of the Section C1 of the dualisation project is testimony of a leader who made promises and fulfill it.

Thanking Okowa for his benevolence,  love and magnanimity for the people, Onuesoke  who expressed satisfaction at the fast-rate at which work is ongoing at the other sections of the road project explained that one of the highpoints of Okowa’s administration is his manifest quest to address nagging developments, adding that his action is noticeable in the infrastructural renewal agenda of his administration.

He said Okowa has, indeed, shown his love for the people of the state, following his passion and commitment to social infrastructures and linking of communities in the state with roads and bridges.

According to him, “In the past four years, Okowa  had constructed  hundreds  of kilometres of roads  either  open up hinter land to inaccessible areas or upgraded to remedy the attendant dilapidation of yesteryears.

“A case in point is the Cable Point Road in Asaba that Governor Okowa transformed from its previous single lane, littered with craters to a smooth dual carriage way, with solar powered street lights boosting its scenic beauty at night.”

Onuesoke reiterated that Asaba-Ughelli dualisation  project when completed  would be a major incentive and bait for investors who want to come and take advantage of business potentials in communities linking the expressway.

He explained that  the value of every other initiative in the administration’s development agenda would be more meaningful and valued when such can be accessed easily by the people.

Hear him, “Investors would be encouraged to build warehouse for storage of agricultural raw materials for production or storage of finished products to be transported outside the state.

“Some investors might decide to establish industry here, hence, the road is motorable for transportation of goods in and out. Such investment will lead to provision of employment.”

He reiterated that the dualisation will bring about rapid transformation on the entire areas as well as reduce travel time for travelers and farmers taking their agricultural produce to the markets in the urban centres.
