The President General of the Amansea Development Union, in Awka North Local Government Area, Anambra State, Chief Chris Ughanze, has pledged his community’s gratitude to the governor of the state, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, for embarking on the reconstruction of the very strategic 29 km Amansea-Oba-Ofemili Road, after a long period of neglect by successive administrations in the state.
The president general, who stated this while speaking with newsmen recently in Amansea, expressed satisfaction on the progress of work on the 29 km road flagged off earlier this year. He commended Prof Soludo for doing what other governors before him neglected.
The Amansea President General said, ‘I haven’t seen a governor like Prof Soludo. I’m always in the morning, afternoon, evening and night, ever grateful to him for he is indeed a solution of our time, because the state of that particular strategic road in Amansea was nothing to write home about – neither humans nor vehicles passed on it.
‘Within few months after taking the mantle of leadership, Governor Soludo flagged off the reconstruction of the 29 km road.
‘The quality and progress of work there now are impressively overwhelming. I went there on my own – I even met the engineer.
‘They had made a remarkable progress. They are now on stone-base casting and the thickness is very overwhelming.
‘I spoke with Engr Fadi; he said, very soon they will start asphalting,’ Chief Ughanze said.
He appealed to Governor Soludo for more consideration on Amansea Community in the road construction plans of his administration.
‘When he (governor) came to our town for the flag-off of the 29 km road, I told him that he had done well, but Amansea still needs some more.
‘Another strategic access road to Amansea begging for urgent attention is the one from Unizik to Ezi Ogbo Primary School, Amansea.
‘Let it not be said that we are like Oliver Twist, so I beg Mr Governor to consider it for us,’ the Amansea Community leader appealed.
