It was celebration galore in Awka, Okpuno and Amawbia communities of Anambra State yesterday as Governor Peter Obi flagged off work on four major roads in the communities.

During the flag-off of Central-Bank Okpuno and Kenneth Dike roads all in Awka, the state capital, the traditional ruler of the town, Igwe Dr.  Gibson Nwosu, described what is happening in Anambra in terms of road construction and the provision of other infrastructure as a revolution being witnessing for the first time under Obi. He assured the governor of the support and cooperation of Awka people for the development of the town.

Speaking in the same vein, a community leader in Okpuno, Prince James Obidinma, said that with the many roads Governor Obi is constructing in Okpuno town, they now have a sense of belonging. He described what is happening in their town as the redressing of the many injustices perpetrated against the town until Obi came to wipe away their tears.

At the flag-off of Amawbia By-pass, Chief Joseph Ofodile said that Anambra had never had it so good. He said that the consensus among the people of the state was that since it is not possible for Obi to go for a third term due to constitutional constraints, the least he could do is to anoint a successor that would be like him. Ofodile warned that anything to the contrary could see the emergence of someone who would come and destroy all that Obi had built.

Speaking during the flag-off, the Commissioner for Works, Arc. Callistus Ilozumba, assured the people of the communities of quality and durable work. He said that Anambra was a peculiar State, where politicians paid jobless people to ascribe the projects of Governor Obi to other people, simply because he did not make noise about them.

“Look at this Central Bank Road about to be flagged off; they have paid their people to say that it is being done by the Central Bank. In the past we have even witnessed those that inspected the projects the governor was doing and claimed some of theirs,” the commissioner said.

Speaking during the ceremonies, Gov. Obi said that his commitment to the people of Anambra State is total. He assured that he would continue to do only things that would benefit the state.

The governor revealed that with the understanding with the Federal Government, Anambra would soon start the reconstruction of the dual carriage road from Amansea into the heart of the capital.
