Expansion of Onitsha-Enugu expressway excites OCCIMA

By The Citizen

The Onitsha Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (OCCIMA) on Friday commended the Federal Government for embarking on the re-construction and expansion of the Onitsha-Enugu expressway.

The President of the chamber, Dr Tim Anosike, told newsmen in Onitsha, Anambra that the reconstruction would facilitate commercial activities in the state. He, however, called for proper monitoring of the project for quality delivery. Anosike also lauded the synergy between the Anambra and federal governments on the project, describing it as politics of development. “Recently, the federal government gave its approval to the Anambra State Government to re-build this segment of the expressway. “The chamber sees this development as a good opportunity to arrest the ugly nature of this road, which has almost gone beyond repairs, with so many souls perishing on it on continuous basis. “We commend the initiative of Gov. Peter Obi on the matter,” he said.
