ACHIEVEMENT OF THE MINISTRY
Although Ebonyi State is cash-strapped but Governor Dave Umahi
has resolved to create a fertile environment for commerce and industry in Ebonyi State. His
intention is to use them as focal points for the state’s economic development.
The Commissioner for Works & Transport, Engineer Fidelis Nweze recounts the master-plan on road
management considering the role of infrastructural in every economy.
The Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr. (Chief) Dave Umahi is desirous to develop the state and one of
the measures is to give the State a face lift. If you go round the state presently, you will discover
that most of the roads within State Capital are in very deplorable condition but within 100 days in
office a lot have been done through Ministry of Works & Transport.
Ogoja road; Nkaliki road; Gunning road; New Market road, these roads are wearing a new look with
concrete pavements and finally asphalted. The roads visited which the government intends to
conclude between now and December includes; Udemezue Street; Udensi Street; Ukpogwu Road;
Ogoja Road; Obiri Street; Nkaliki; Jos Street; Hosanna Street, among others.
This Government is equally developing rural communities. The construction involves flexible and
rigid pavements; the flexible pavement is the asphaltic laying, while the rigid pavement is done
with concrete. The Nkaliki Road is an example of rigid pavement done within 100 days in Office.
