The inspection train also got to Amagba Community, where the governor assured of the re-construction of the road, noting, “We don’t talk too much but we assure you that the construction of Amagba Road will commence soon.”
He added, “In road construction, there are procurement processes and procedures that are involved and must be followed. By the time these processes and procedures are completely addressed, the construction of other roads will commence as contractors will be mobilised to site.”
Obaseki explained that the focus on constructing rural roads was to open new areas for enhanced economic activity and improved livelihoods for the people, especially agrarian communities, from whence people need to move agro-produce to cities. “The road construction will reduce the level of poverty in rural areas as the construction of roads will open the areas for economic activities. The roads to be constructed will open up communities outside the state capital to development,” he said.
