FIRST YEAR ANNIVERSARY: Okpanam-Ibusa, Isheagu-Ewulu roads ready for inauguration – Aniagwu

As part of the preparations to mark the one-year anniversary of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori’s administration in Delta State, the Commissioner for Works, Rural and Riverine Roads, Mr. Charles Aniagwu, embarked on inspection of the Okpanam/Ibusa and Isheagu/Ewulu Roads scheduled for inauguration.

The roads, which spanned 5.3 kilometers and 9.1 kilometers respectively, and approximately 90% completed, connects major towns and would boost the socio-economic lives of the people in the area.

Speaking to journalists after inspecting the roads on Tuesday, Aniagwu expressed satisfaction with the speed of the projects and directed the contractors to expedite completion and prioritize the installation of road markings and other essentials in readiness for inauguration.

He reiterated the governor’s commitment to delivering quality projects to Deltans in line with his MORE Agenda.

The Works Commissioner, flanked by the functional Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Works (Highways and Urban Roads) Engr. Juliet Aboloje and the contractor said, “Governor Oborevwori has outlined numerous projects and programmes to mark his one year in office.

“Apart from roads, there are other projects and programs, including empowerment initiatives anchored by the Ministry of Humanitarian and Girl Child, as well as other ministries.

“The governor has instructed us to ensure that all roads are top-notch before he proceeds to commission them. Even if contractors claim that roads have been completed, he wants us to verify if they have been built to specifications.

“We hope that in the next few days, they will complete the project and exit the site to enable us carry out the final inspection.

“That’s the same approach the governor wants us to take with every project. He doesn’t just want to commission projects; he wants to ensure that any road being commissioned has been done according to specifications and provides value to the people of Delta by ensuring that the money paid equals the work done.”
