The Ebonyi State Government is to spend over a billion naira in the provision of street light in the state capital, Abakaliki.

Disclosing this on Wednesday while commissioning the first phase of the street lighting project, the state Governor, Chief David Umahi, said he was excited seeing come on the sections of the Abakaliki – Enugu Highway (between the Peoples Democratic Party State Secretariat and Onuebonyi) in the state capital.

Umahi explained that the procurement of five generators for the first phase of the project, “was to ensure that every night we have light along this section of the town.”

The governor re-stated his determination to reconstruct over 200 kilometers of urban roads, provide water and sanitation facilities in the state capital.”

The governor, who observed that the state government was re-verifying some of the contracts he inherited from the past administration due to its very high cost, hinted that his administration had terminated most of the traffic light contracts as a result of their high cost.

He however explained that street light projects “whose contractors were not willing to cooperate with the government will be terminated.”

Umahi stated that supervisors would be appointed to handle the fueling and maintenance of the lighting facilities, and armed security men deployed to protect them against vandalism.

Earlier, the state Commissioner for Power, Chief Emmanuel Uguru, stated that “the street lighting of the state capital would enhance the social status, economic status and the security of the city.”

He assured that work on other street light projects in all the dualised roads within the state capital would soon be completed.
