The Project Director of Ughelli-Asaba Dualisation Road Project in Delta State, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has described the state as the fastest infrastructural developing state in Nigeria.
Onuesoke, who made the observation while inspecting the work done in the on-going Ughelli-Asaba dualisation road project, said Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan’s administration has vigorously pursued its infrastructural development programme such that the whole of Delta has become one huge construction site, adding that key projects like the Asaba International airport had been completed and Asaba- Ughelli road dualisation projects is on going..
He maintained that roads, bridges, sports facilities, beautification and erosion control measures, among others, are visible across the nooks and crannies of Delta. He pointed out that the Ughelli-Asaba dualisation project is a major infrastructural project embarked upon by the state government, adding that, when completed, it will jump-start economic activities in Delta as it will open up the state and serve as a gateway to the East while facilitating optimal usage of the proposed Asaba Business District.
“It will facilitate optimal usage of Asaba International Airport and the proposed Asaba Business District. It will encourage agricultural development and ease transporation of agricultural products from the rural areas to the urban areas. There will be free movement of goods and services all over the state and other parts of the country,” Onusesoke noted.
He appealed to the communities in the area to cooperate with workers of Consolidated Construction Company (CCC) because they would be the first to benefit from the project.
