This is just as the governor promised that his adminis-tration would not consider geographical divisions in addressing the developmental needs of the state.

The governor, who stated this while performing the flag-off of the projects yesterday, said part of his administration’s cardinal agenda is to run a one-stop state, where democracy dividends will be evenly distributed across the 27 local government areas of the state.

The 16 roads earmarked for construction under the project include Nkume/Umuowa/Owerri Ebiri/Umuna/Orlu; Imo State University Teaching Hospital, Umuna; Mgbidi/Oguta; Douglas/Emmanuel College/Naze and Naze/Poly/Iheagwa/Obinze.
