Ralph Nwosu maintained that the administration of His Excellency Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma has reinvigorated governance and administration in Imo State through his 3R mantra especially as its concerns roads construction.

The Commissioner In his words “As you can see, His Excellency has approved we give this road a facelift, i first did this road in 2009 and i am here again after 13years, the contractor has assured us he will showcase his expertise and we have confidence in him to deliver the road within the shortest possible time to enable road users access the road, I am particularly grateful to the Governor for his kind approval on this particular road and am certain that the road upon completion will meet the expectations of our people”.

The Project Manager of Shanid construction has therefore pledged the company’s unalloyed commitments to delivering quality and durable construction as contained in the terms and specifications of the project contract while seeking for supports from road users as construction commences.

The Commissioner has used the opportunity to charge motorists to possibly maintain alternative routes pending the completion of the project. He also urged Ndi-Imo to remain steadfast and positive as the reconstruction rehabilitation and recovery drive of the Shared Prosperity Government will cut across the nooks and crannies of the state in due time.

Yar’Adua Drive was constructed by the Ohakim administration, but the Okorocha administration failed to maintain the road, leading to the dilapidation of some sections of the road.
