Anambra inaugurates N300m motor park

By  Enyim Enyim

Onitsha—The Anambra  State Government has inaugurated a N300 million motor park on the outskirts of Onitsha, to decongest the Onitsha-Owerri Road.

Governor Peter Obi said  in Onitsha while inaugurating the park, that it was the biggest park in the South-East geo-political zone of the country.
Obi said that the project was embarked upon by the government to alleviate  the  hardships faced by travellers, due to incessant traffic hold-up at the beginning of the Onitsha-Owerri Road in Onitsha.

“Buses travelling to Owerri and other parts of Imo State, Aba,Umuahia and Port Harcourt will begin to load and terminate here.

“This will help decongest Onitsha-Owerri Road. It will also create employment opportunities as well as bring sanity in the mode buses load and terminate within this road.”

“The park gulped over N300 million, which included the cost of land, construction of the park itself and auxiliary support facilities for the park, such as public conveniences and eateries,” he said.

Igwe, Josiah Nwakobi, the Traditional Ruler of Obosi, thanked the government for locating the project in the community.
