The Enugu State Governor, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, has charged contractors handling various road construction and rehabilitation

projects in the state to ensure the standard of implementation is of

high quality to justify the money his administration had spent on such

projects.
Represented by his deputy, Mrs. Cecilia Ezeilo, the governor made the

comment during the inspection of work done by one of the indegeneous

contractors, Anbeez Services Limited, along Enugu - Oji-River -

Ugwuoba - Onitsha Old Road axis.
The governor explained that his administration decided to rehabilitate

failed sections of federal government-owned roads to curb the adverse

effects on the state’s socio-economic fortune and give travellers a

stress-free experience.
Governor Ugwuanyi noted that the road which he described as “an

important gateway into the South-East” would be delivered on schedule

despite the grim economic situation in the country.

The state’s Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Patrick

Ikpenwa, urged the people to cultivate the habit of monitoring

contractors handling road projects in their areas and inform the

government of any shortcomings observed.
In his response, the Managing Director of the firm, Engr. Anayo

Onwuegbu, commended the governor’s enthusiasm to transform the state,

adding that his firm had been fully mobilized for the job and would

ensure completion on schedule.
