Umahi inspects federal road projects in Enugu, insists Tinubu means well


Minister of Works, Engr David Umahi on Sunday, inspected some Federal Government’s projects in Enugu and other states.

Upon arriving in Enugu State, the Minister visited the ongoing reconstruction of the collapsed New Artisan Bridge at Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway.

The minister also moved to inspect the ongoing construction of a 23-span mega twin flyover bridge at Emene in Enugu State.

Umahi described the flyover as the best thing that never happened to the people of Enugu and neighbouring states.

This was contained in a statement signed by the minister’s Special Adviser on Media, Mr Uchenna Orji and made available to DAILY POST on Sunday.

The road, which links many suburbs within the state and the neighbouring states, has for many years been a nightmare for vehicles, some of which ply the route through Benue State to far parts of Northern Nigeria and some others to parts of South South through Cross River State.

The statement reads in parts, “The administration of Mr President thought it expedient, in keeping with his agenda of robust economic revolution for a sustainable future of our country, to construct for Enugu State a mega twin flyover that will beat the elegance and utility of all flyovers ever built in the South East.

“This flyover, when completed, will change the face of Enugu State, attract trade and investment to the State, reduce accident and insecurity, improve safety and increase patronage to the economic facilities, including Airports in Enugu and Ebonyi States and that of other neighbouring states.

“Mr President means well for Nigeria and is determined to revolutionize the economy through road infrastructure development.

“The Honourable Minister has this as a task that must be accomplished. He knows the job. His passion to deliver is unequaled.”
