The new Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Willie Obiano, on Thursday called on the Federal Government to support his administration to construct roads and bridges in the state.
Obiano made the request at the headquarters of the Federal Ministry of Works in Abuja when he paid a visit to the Minister of Works, Mr. Mike Onolememen.
He said, “Roads are very important, both on land and water; so we are going to get aggressive in building bridges to link communities.
“We want to thank the minister for the good works he is doing in Anambra State and the support he gave my predecessor and also solicit the same kind of cooperation to be extended to me.
“I also mentioned some of the roads that are of crucial importance to us and I will be summarising and bringing details so that he can galvanise activities in those areas.”
Responding to the governor’s request, Onolememen assured Obiano that the high level of collaboration between the Federal Government and the past governor of Anambra would be sustained.
He said, “It is our hope that we will even raise the stakes during your tenure because we have quite a number of ongoing projects in Anambra State.
“There is no better way to guarantee the completion of those projects than a very good collaboration between the state and Federal Government through the Federal Ministry of Works.”
