Below is a photographic depiction of the capital of Anambra State.

It shows the main nerve center of the Anambra State capital – Aroma Junction, Awka.

The Peter Obi administration had gotten financial approval from the Federal Government to reconstruct the federal expressway over a year ago.

The current administration has asked for another 4 years of continuity. But others say a change is needed.

You be the judge.

Reconstruction of Onitsha-Enugu expressway: FG gives approval to Anambra

By VINCENT UJUMADU [on July 11, 2012]

AWKA — THE Federal Government yesterday granted approval to Anambra State government to reconstruct the controversial Anambra end of the Onitsha-Enugu expressway.

Anambra State would receive reimbursement from the Federal Government later.

The approval was seen as a great relief to Governor Peter Obi, who had been pleading with the Federal Government to allow the state government reconstruct the road and get the money later in the interest of the users.

Minister of Works, Mr. Mike Onolememen, who announced the approval during a visit to Governor Obi in Awka, said President Goodluck Jonathan’s approval was due to the governor’s consistent pleading and several representations to the Federal Government on the need for speedy completion of the project.

According to the minister, the Bridgehead to Zik’s round about axis of the dual carriageway was awarded to the Nigercat Construction Company, while Zik’s roundabout to Amansea in Awka was awarded to the Consolidated Construction Company – CCC, and explained that the partitioning of the road to the two contractors was to ensure early completion of the project and save the people of the South-East from untold hardship.

He said: “The president has approved that Anambra State government should finance the job which the new contractor -Nigercat- will do, while the federal ministry of works will reimburse the state at the end of the project.

    Blackmail and blasphemy in action here. Gov. Obi has done greatly well in Anambra State. Kudos to him and APGA.

    Funny people. This is a Federal road. Is that the only road in Anambra? Why did you focus on just one roundabout, why didn’t you picture the other parts of the same road in front of UNIZIK permanent site? Your silly pictures does not sway anyone that know the Peter Obi government achieved so so much on roads and other infrastructure.

    Not very fiar reporting, given that this is a federal road that passed through Awka downwards.

    Having said that, Obi and many other SE governors had the opportunity to reconstruct these roads and be reimbursed by the feds, they refused to do so. Being that this is the road from where you see all the fine building making up the Anambra state capital, Obi should have paid more attention to it. Tinubu, Fashola, and Duke did it, why can’t our SE governors?
