We have been mobilizing them; we are here to make sure everything is done according to specification and on time.
If you look at the quality of the drainage and the rest you will see the contractor is doing a good work. I am satisfied but, I want them to increase on the pace of work”, said Obiano.
He further revealed that the road was just one of the seven road undergoing construction within the Nnewi Metropolis.
“This road here is one out of the 7 roads within the four communities that make up Nnewi which is undergoing construction in my administration, totaling them to 21km.This is apart from the street light we are putting for Nnewi people and the 20 million community development project that you are also handling” , Obiano revealed.

“I am waiting for the Ndi Nnewi to come and collect another 20million naira community development fund if you finish your first project. I am also waiting for the markets to come and collect the 10million naira for market project development if you have chosen your project. So the markets should meet the criteria so that we can quickly give them their project fund,” said Obiano.

We have asphalted 50 percent of the 4.2km of this road drainage to drainage”, Obiano said.
