It was all encomiums recently when Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State, commissioned some major roads in Uyo, the AkwaIbom State capital.
The roads include the Youth Avenue at MbiabongEtoi, the 1.4 kilometer Concrete Hotel Road and the 1.2 kilometer Radio Nigeria, Atlantic FM access roads at NsukaraOffot.
Udom Emmanuel, his Wife, Martha Udom Emmanuel, the Deputy Governor, Mr. Moses Ekpo and some executive council members went round the projects location with the Commissioner of Works Mr. Ephraim Inyang.
The Governor while performing the commissioning said his government was relentless in ensuring the infrastructural expansion of the state.
At Youth Avenue,the Governor who was welcomed by a large crowd of supporters said he was moved by the poor state of the road in October during his visit to a thanksgiving church service and had promised to deliver the road in record time for the people.
He said the road which was of the highest quality, is a fulfillment of his promise to open up communities in the state for development.
The governor stated that his administration had executed more than 30 roads in Uyo local government an but that since it would not be possible go round to commission all the roads, the few roads he could commission would represent the entire network of roads executed so far by his government.
He also thanked the contractors for maintaining the highest standards as directed and assured that it would take more than 10 -15years before any maintenance can be required of the projects.
