Thank you Mr President.
I can confirm that work has started on Enugu/Onitsha express way as directed by President Buhari on his Independent day speech. The RCC Construction firm moved to the site and has made one lane of the dual carriage way motorkable.
The last time I went to Enugu from Awka, I spent 4 hours. But yesterday when I left Awka to Enugu, it was a journey of about 50 minutes. I sincerely thank president Buhari for hearing our cry.
Meanwhile, the Enugu state governor also heard our cry and has moved to reconstruct the old Enugu/Onitsha road which became a death trap.
We shall keep doing our best to help our leaders to be responsive to the yearnings of our people. However, Obiano has chosen to govern by propaganda. About a month ago, gov Obiano took some caterpillars to Umunya end of Enugu/Onitsha express way, the governor called his SA media (social), Ifeanyi Aniagoh who went to the site with press men, took the pictures of the caterpillars on the road, and published same on the social media.
They hailed the governor of being proactive, and as usual shouted Willie is working. But unfortunately, these caterpillars disappeared two days later, and the road has gone too bad that commuters now take Nteje from Umunya Odumodu junction to connect Awkuzu through a narrow bridge where a the youths collect 50 naira per vehicle.
The same thing the gov did at Ifite road Awka by Unizik where they took caterpillars to, snapped the road, shouted Willie is working and the caterpillars disappeared while the road remained as it were.
Like I said before, Enugu/Onitsha express way and that of Portharcourt/Enugu express road were last constructed under Abacha regime and all successive govts neglected them. But if President Buhari whom we did not vote for, will keep his promise and reconstruct these roads and give attention to other neglected federal infrastructures in south east, we shall not only support his govt to succeed, we shall turn south east to APC zone.
Anambra 2017 is a taste case.
