The people of Nekede-Ihiagwa communities can now heave a sigh of relief as the shared prosperity government of Gov. Hope Uzodimma has commence the construction of Nekede-Ihiagwa road.
It is on record that the previous administration in the state only performed the flag off of the road with so much media hype and left no contractor on site. This singular act further launched the road into a deplorable state and became a nightmare for both motorists and commuters as well as business owners around the area.
It is applaudable and worth commending that this is one of the roads that the Gov. Hope Uzodimma administration decided to continue with by bringing a contractor to site and today construction has began in earnest.
This alone has further dwarfed the intentions of the naysayers and pitched them against their own words as neither the governor himself nor his administration is nonchalant or feigning ignorance of the deplorable state of Nekede-Ihiagwa road, instead the shared prosperity government of Gov. Hope Uzodimma was merely taking a comprehensive assessment of how to go about the construction and the choice of a contractor that can do a better job that Imolites will appreciate, in the long run.
It is no gainsaying that it is appropriate to thank Gov. Hope Uzodimma for the high spirit of continuity and his firm resolve to see to the construction of the Nekede-Ihiagwa road as indeed normalcy will gradually return, the hike in transport fare will reduce, businesses will begin to make turnovers and unwholesome activities on that road will come to an abrupt end.
We can therefore rest assured that other roads like this in the rural areas will not remain unnoticed as the present administration in the state is very much passionate about the state of our roads and will leave no stone unturned until they all wear a new look.
