“We are very glad that the road which has been impassable for 20 years is receiving attention courtesy of Ekwunife’s legislative prowess, let her not be deterred because we will ensure she returns to the Senate”, he assured.

In his speech, Dr Oliver Onwuahuru described the A-grade lawmaker as a representative Ndi Anambra are proud of, stressing that the commencement of the road project is an evolving development. He noted that Ekwunife has been very articulate and positive in her legislative engagements.

Appreciating, the Chairman of the PDP Dunukofia LGA, Mr. Chigbo Dibiezue thanked Ekwunife for her initiative in attracting the project, adding that the PDP family in the LGA are proud of her.
