“I have convinced Fashola to order contractors back to site. I have the assurance of the minister that the contractors would move to site within two days. “Even before I became the candidate of the APC, that road had been on my agenda and it was by God’s grace and with the assistance of my colleagues in the House of Representatives, I was able to facilitate its inclusion in the 2017 budget of the Federal Government. “The importance of that road to the socio-economic well-being of the people of the South-East cannot be over-emphasized. It is my hope that once the road is completed, business and other socio-economic affairs that had been affected by its terrible conditions would be boosted.”
—The All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate in Anambra State, Dr. Tony Nwoye, expressing delight over the decision by the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing to move to the site of the abandoned Onitsha-Enugu Expressway.
