Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, has partially opened the iconic Aroma Flyover in Awka, the state capital, to commuters in order to ease up the heavy traffic congestion usually expected in the area during the Yuletide.

Performing the partial opening on Monday, Governor Obiano announced that the bridge was about 95 percent completed. He explained that he was opening it to ease the flow of traffic in the heart of Awka during the Christmas period and that it would be closed down after the season to ensure a proper completion of work.

Governor Obiano also performed a partial opening of the Amawbia Bridge in the Awka Capital Territory to facilitate the flow of traffic.

The governor used the opportunity to announce to Ndi Anambra that he had engaged the services of a special police helicopter to carry out aerial surveillance of the entire state during the Yuletide to tighten the screws on security in the state.

The helicopter surveillance team, which hovered above the Aroma Bridge while the governor performed the partial opening of the bridge, is expected to feed intelligence gathered from the skies to the Special Police Patrol Cars on the ground in order to ensure a comprehensive coverage of the state.

“We want to give Ndi Anambra a crime-free Christmas. With the Helicopter Squad in the air and the Special Patrol Cars on the ground, Anambra shall continue to maintain its position as the safest state in Nigeria,” Governor Obiano said.

News Express recalls that barely a fortnight ago, Obiano had donated 25 Special American-style Patrol Cars to the State Command of the Nigerian Police to enable it sustain the crackdown on criminals in the state.

The police was also equipped with Speed Guns to track down over-speeding vehicles and Alcohol Testing Devices to checkmate drunk driving.
