“As you can see, most of the earth work is done, what remains is to do the stone base from Nkwo to the express road, which is virtually completed. The gullies and vallies need to be protected to avoid any issue of erosion taking place” Okeke said.

The deputy governor having commended the contractor for his speed, urged him to continue on the same pace so that before the rain starts, the road would have been asphalted, for people to use during the rainy season.

“Abagana bye-pass is already having a lot of issues. This would create assess roads to Nri, Amawbia, Nawfia, Awka, and  take care of traffic” Okeke said.
