Enugu State Governor,  Dr. Peter Mbah has  approved the construction of 22 kilometre roads in Isiuzo Local Government Area in the first phase of road construction in that area  In line with his  commitment to infrastructural development.

Correspondent Jude Ezike reports that the State Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Engr Gerald Otiji, disclosed this while briefing newsmen on the outcome of the State Executive Council meeting presided over by Governor Mbah.

According to the commissioner, the first phase of the road construction is aimed at reducing insecurity and improving agricultural activities in the area.

The commissioner who said the roads construction would start from Agumgbuji – Ogbete – Agamede – Odenigbo to other parts of the council, noted that it was imperative as many of the communities in the LGA were displaced some time last year following herdsmen attack.

Engr Otiji, who announced that adequate security had been provided in the area stated that the road if constructed would give access and quick response for any distress call by the residents.

In a comment,  the state commissioner for environment, Prof Sam Ugwu who applauded governor Mbah for the massive work especially the ongoing road construction at Idaw River, said to have lacked government presence for over 48 years, remarked that the people of the area always feel elated on sighting any government official.

Contributing, the commissioner for Information, Mr Aka Eze Aka, said during the meeting, Governor Mbah waded into the delay in the issuance of the National Identity Number, NIN, going on at the state secretariat.

The commissioner noted that the move was to enable the governor to achieve his aim of purchasing JAMB registration forms for indigent students in the state which must be done with NIN.
