He also announced that the government will soon complete the installation of streetlights along the road leading from Igbariam junction to Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University within two months.
The Governor explained that the visit was to see what the contractors have done with the money he gave to them in November last year before he will release another tranche to them. 
He revealed that his government has targeted to complete forty roads which it started late last year before the dry season runs out.
The Commissioner for Road Infrastructure, Furniture and Maintenance, Chief Law Chinwuba said Governor Obiano matches his words with action and will ensure that the project is completed on schedule.

Some of the villagers including Chief Celestine Mozie and Mrs Ngozi Okeke while commending the pace of work on the road, said they can now evacuate their agricultural produce with ease and thanked Governor Obiano for his benevolence towards them.
