The Chairman of Peace Mass Transit (PMT), and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Enugu State, Mr. Maduka Onyishi has handed over a newly constructed N400 million 1.6Km road to the state government.
Â The road, Amaukwa in Nsukka was constructed by the Peace Mass owner, who also hails from the area.
Speaking at the flag-off of the road, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi described the gesture as a welcome compliment to his administration’s commitment to improve on road infrastructure in the state.
He said it was his governmentâ€™s agenda to ensure that every village in the state had access roads all-year-round.
â€œI am happy with Onyishi for keying into my administrationâ€™s initiative to ensure that every community in the state has access roads both during rainy and dry seasons.
â€œThis 1.6-kms road that started in Amaukwa and terminated at the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) Odim gate, will strengthen the cordial relationship between Amaukwa and the university community.Â
â€œMy administration will continue to put premium on the development of the state as well as ensure adequate security of lives and property in the state.
Earlier in his remarks, Onyishi said he constructed the road to ensure that the people of the area as well as the university staff and students, had access road to his village as well as a smooth road into the university from Odim gate.
â€œI love my people and I will continue to do anything within my capacity to make them happy.Â
â€œI am also happy with the administration of Gov. Ugwuanyi for his commitment in moving the state to the next level,â€™â€™ he said.
