Ebonyi State Commissioner for Works and Transport, Engr. Nweze Fidelis Kings has commended the contractor handling the 31-kilometre Ishieke Odomoke Road for quality job being executed.
The Commissioner who was on a routine inspection visit to the project noted that the concrete pavement, earthwork, drainage and culverts had reached between 75 and 95 completion.
Engr. Fidelis Kings said that the first phase of 15 kilometres of the 31 kilometre-road was awarded to CBC Global Nigeria Limited while the remaining 16 kilometres would be awarded as soon as the first phase was completed.
The Commissioner explained that the intention of Ebonyi State Government under the leadership of Engr. Dr. David Nweze Umahi, was to link Odomoke to the Ring Road as well as Efium to quicken their access to the state capital.
Engr. Nweze described Nwiboko Obodo Road as Promise Kept by Governor David Nweze Umahi, who during the 2015 campaign promised to construct the road, adding that the same pace of work was being achieved in urban as well as rural roads in all the 13 Local Government Areas of the state stretching 15km each.
Engr. Kings Nweze expressed joy that the people of the area had promised to vote massively for Governor Umahi in the 2019 election to reciprocate his kind gesture.
