Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has said that the completed 28.2 kilometer Nkpor-Amawbia road has been set as a standard of quality of roads to be done in Anambra State.

The governor made the declaration whilst commissioning the completed road at the Nkpor Round-About end.

Also, Obiano has commissioned the 1.2 kilometer PHCN Road at Awada Layout, Obosi. The commissioning took place in idemmili North Local Government Area.

At the Nkpor Roundabout, Obiano stated that the Nkpor-Amawbia Road was a quality construction work undertaken in line with the best standards in road construction around the world; hence it is now the reference point for all road projects in the state.

According to Obiano, “I have to make it clear that this road was started by my predecessor in 2008 and was done up to 18 kilometers. My administration has completed 28 kilometeres of the road with end-to-end drainage and clear road signs and markings as well as the street-lighting which will soon be completed.”

He called on the Nkpor community and residents to ensure that the road is preserved. He also assured them that government operatives were working hard to fish-out criminals who disturb the peace of the community, and assured that the security of lives and property remain a cardinal programme of his government.

Obiano commended the quality of work on the PHCN road. Said Obiano: “My administration started and completed this road which provides access to an important facility; I want to assure Ndi Anambra that despite paucity of funds, we have not abandoned any road awarded by my predecessor.

“This is in line with my promise of “3 Cs”: to complete, to commission, and commence new projects.”
