Governor Willie Obiano has directed the contractor handling the construction of Eke-Agbaagba Uli road to immediately commence asphalting on a one point five kilometer stretch on the road where drainage and earthwork have been achieved.

Governor Obiano gave the directive yesterday when he inspected construction work on the five point one kilometer road. 
The road project was reportedly progressing smoothly until a major gully started and stalled progress of work threatening to cut the road in two.
It was observed during the inspection that the thirty-two meter deep gully had been fully filled and a major drainage being constructed to channel water to a nearby Enyija stream.
Governor Obiano, who spoke after inspecting the road, said the directive to commence asphalting was to ensure that the drains and earthwork achieved will not be washed away when the rains fully set in.
He explained that the visit was to see what has been done with the funds he has released for work on the road and expressed satisfaction with what was on ground.
The Governor said the road is important as it leads to major agrarian communities of Ihiala Council Area as well as another campus of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University.
The Member representing Ihiala Constituency One, in the state Assembly, Mr. Chidi Udemmadu recalled that the road was impassable as at last year due to the gully challenge, but noted that with the Governor's intervention, people of communities in the area can now heave a sigh of relief, describing him as God sent.
For the Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr. Cee-Don Adinuba, who is from the area, aside the infrastructural development projects of the present administration which are visible in the council area, Governor Obiano has through his well thought -out economic policies, given better meaning to the lives of the people.
On his part, the President General of Uli Community, Ogbuehi Dan Imochukwu thanked Governor Obiano for keeping to his promise to construct the road and assured that they will give the contractor every support required to deliver the Project on schedule.
Governor Obiano was during the visit received by the traditional ruler of Uli, Igwe Damian Onyekaonwu and other stakeholders in the area who expressed happiness over what the Governor is doing for them.
