OWERRI—The contractor handling the Okigwe-Arondizuogu-Nnewi-Oba federal road project has been charged to expedite action on the job now that the dry season has gradually set in.

The traditional ruler of Iheme-Izuogu, Ideato North Local Government Area of Imo State, Eze K. Kanu, gave the charge while commenting on the level of work so far executed on the road project.

He commended the efforts of the member representing Ideato North and South constituency in the National Assembly, Dr. Rufus Omeire, for his role in attracting the project.

The royal father, who said that the reconstruction of the dilapidated road would usher in a new lease of life for the citizens of the area, also promised that his community would ensure the safety of personnel and equipment of the contraction company.

In a related development, the traditional ruler of Umuakam in Ideato South Local Government Area, Eze P.E. Ewuzie, has appealed to Dr. Omeire to include the primary school in his community, in the lawmaker’s schools rehabilitation programme.
