Stressing that his administration was determined to take development to all parts of the state despite the economic recession, Okowa said: “Many roads and other projects are either on-going or ready for commissioning in April.

“We have about 398km roads all through the state and so many projects are ready for commissioning now. Between April and May, we will be commissioning several road and school projects.”

At the Okpanam road project, where drainage construction work is ongoing, Okowa said that “The drainage work will be connected and completed before the end of February. The drainage project is very important to the de-flooding of Asaba Capital Territory, it will remove storm water from Asaba.”
