Anambra state governor, Willie Obiano informed President Muhammadu Buhari that construction work at the Onitsha-Enugu federal road has slowed down to almost zero level.

Governor Obiano appealed to Buhari to intervene in ensuring speedy delivery of equipment for the construction of Second Niger Bridge which have been purchased but are being delayed Germany.

Obiano who spoke after meeting the president behind closed-door said he sought the assistance of the federal government for the settlement of about 5,000 displaced by flood in his state.

Speaking on the reason for his visit, Obiano said, “Four of my local governments, that is four out of 21 are under water now as we speak because of this flood and it affected a lot of things, properties which include farm produce and what have you.

“I called on Mr. President to assist us at this very crucial time being a COVID-19 time and now, the flood we are experiencing this time around is like the one of 2012 which is terrible. So, he promised to do something immediately.

“I did also told him about the progress so far made on the 2nd Niger Bridge. If you watch from their side, you will see that almost half of that bridge has been done. But because the water level is very high, the contractor working in that bridge requires some equipment which they’ve already purchased long ago sitting in Germany and requires some support from Central Bank to be able to be brought in. I did 21mention that to him and the President noted that and said he will do something about that.

“The other point was on citing the Federal University of Education in Aguleri. Anambra North Senatorial District which does not have any federal institution at all. Other two senatorial districts have two or three federal institutions.”
