Soludo Flags Off 16.4KM Ajali – Akpu – Nawfija – Ufuma – Ogbunka Road

Governor of Anambra State Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo launched off the Nawjija to Ogbunka road, which would run to Akpu, Ufuma, Ajali all the way down to Ogbunka, spanning three rivers, in fulfillment of his campaign pledge to the people of Orumba.

During the occasion, Governor Soludo recounted how the Parish Priest requested him to remember them in his kingdom when he becomes governor—to restore the Nawfija road—while he was at a church service in Nawfija.

The Governor said the request by the Parish Priest sunk into his memory because he knew deep down, that the road will be easy access from Nawfija to Ogbunka.

He stressed that sadly, Anambra has a road crisis.

“Roads at Okpoko, Mmiata, Amansea through ebenebe, Awba-Ofemili shall be constructed and a bridge from Awba-Ofemili to Anyamelum shall be built.

“Also, roads from Ufuma to Awa, through Ndiukwuenu to Amansea will be fixed”.

Professor Soludo maintained that when the road is completed, from Ufuma, in 15 minutes someone can drive to Awka promising that before his one year in office, the road will be ready.

The Governor also promised to build roads from Nanka, Igboukwu to Ikenga, Obosi, Abagana, Nimo and Awka, in order of priority. According to him, Ndi Anambra are in major need of roads.

“I inspect every roads that shall be constructed before embarking on the construction”.

“I was at Nnewi to take a look at the state of the roads”.

The Governor went on to declare that Nnewi is the largest urban city in the Anambra South Senatorial zone and must therefore rise again, stressing that he is vigorously working with the solution team for Anambra to be better.

“We will fix roads in Ezira to Achina. This project is our own! The quality of roads we are building has never been done in the state, they are guaranteed to last for 20 years.

“But we have all our personal responsibility and it should never be taken for granted.

“APGA Government is imbibing it’s slogan Onye aghana Nwanne ya

“For these roads to continue, Orumba North and South should understand this is an APGA project.”

Soludo urged the people to vote for APGA and its candidates (Senate, House of Rep and House of Assembly).

He said that their victory will aid his government to continue developing Orumba by attracting resources from Abuja to State level.

The TC Chairman of Orumba South, Prince Neville Uchendu appreciated the Governor for running his administration with transparency, dedication and accountability.

The Commissioner for Works, Engr Ifeanyi Okoma said the road was awarded in 2018 by the previous administration.

He said Mr Governor decided to fix the road when he came onboard.
