Chime appeals to FG to rehabilitate Federal roads in Enugu.

Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu State has appealed to the National Assembly to facilitate the construction of federal roads in the state.
He made the appeal at Amagunze, Nkanu East Local Government Area when the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) launched its campaign for the Nov. 2 local government elections.
Chime, who was reacting to the delay in the construction of the Agbani-Akpugo-Ozalla-Amagunze-Ezza federal road, promised that the state government would assist in its construction to ease transportation of farm produce.
“It is unfortunate that this federal road leading to various communities in our state is yet to be constructed.
“The federal government has awarded the contract for the construction of the road but it has not been executed.
“The state government has given a face-lift to state roads; I appeal to members of the National Assembly from the state to ensure that Agbani-Akpugo-Ozalla-Amagunze-Ezza federal road is constructed.
“But on our own as a government, we will see how we can assist in the construction of the road to ensure access to our communities,’’ Chime said.
Responding to the appeal, Sen. Gilbert Nnaji, representing Enugu East, said the members of the National Assembly from the state would facilitate the speedy completion of federal projects in the state.
“I want to commend the governor for the giant strides he has recorded in the state. We at the National Assembly can only order for the construction of the road but we cannot execute the project.
“We will do our best to facilitate the execution of the project as well as other projects in the state,’’ he said.
Some residents of the community who spoke during the rally expressed concern with the state of the road, saying it had led to increase in transport fares.
One of the residents, Mr Joseph Ani, said that whenever there was heavy downpour the road became impassable.
“We are lucky today because there is no rain. If it rains or when the dust is too much, nobody will be able to pass here. I beg the government to come to our aid,’’ he said.
Some PDP chairmanship candidates, who spoke during the rally, pledged their commitment to improve the welfare of doctors in rural areas to ensure effective healthcare delivery.
The party’s chairmanship candidate for Nkanu West LGA, Mr Afam Okereke, promised that if voted into power on Nov. 2, he would upgrade health facilities in the area to international standard.
