Jubilation in Anambra/Kogi Bordering Communities as Work Begins on Abandoned Otuocha-Ibaji-Kogi Road Facilitated by Sen. Tony Nwoye (VIDEO)

Tears of joy and jubilation rent the air as NigerCat begins work on the 30 kilometres abandoned Otuocha-Anam-Nzam-Innoma-Iheaka-Ibaji Federal Road linking many rural Communities in Anambra North with Ibaji Local Government Area of Kogi State.

This is coming after years of abandonment, which has virtually cut off many Communities in Anambra East and West from interacting with their fellow Anambraians over the years.

Some of the communities have to go through Illah in Delta State in order to have access to their homes and farmlands.

The people of the Area trooped out in their numbers to Welcome The Senator Representing Anambra North Senatorial District, Dr. Tony Nwoye and the House of Representatives Member representing Anambra East and West Federal Constituency, Hon. Peter Anaekwe (Macpee) who were at Newly set up NigerCat Construction Yard Site at Umueri to see things for themselves and to know how far and how ready the Company is to deliver the project in record time.

Senator Tony explained that while he was in the 8th House of Representatives, he had pursued vigorously for the Construction of the road.

Now in the 10th Senate, he said he continued with the first zeal to ensure the Road gets adequate attention and funding from the Federal Government, describing the achievement as a dream come true as it will improve the socio-economic life of the people of the Communities.

“Today, the efforts have paid off as President Bola Tinubu and Minister of Works, Senator Dave Umahi, have come to the rescue of the people of Anambra North by re-awarding the road for the sum of over N34 billion naira. I also appreciate the Senator Akpabio-led 10th Senate for making the road a priority

“The Contractor is now on site. They have shown their readiness to deliver the needed results”, he stressed.

He promised to help the Contractor to get the New design of the road, stressing that upon completion of the road, journey from Anambra to kogi and Abuja would be reduced by at least two to three hours, just as many communities along the road would be opened up.

Senator Tony said the Road is being financed through Road Tax Credit facility from NNPC, providing a major part of the funding.

He assured that proper evaluation, monitoring and oversight will be carried out as the work goes on to ensure that quality work is done.

Hon Peter Anaekwe (Macpee) on his part, stressed that the road is key to the good people of Anambra East and West and Nigerians in general, appreciating Senator Dr Tony Nwoye for his efforts at ensuring the project sees the light of the day.
