In my particular style of seeing things for myself, I embarked on another round of spontaneous inspection of projects around the State, this time, I saw the level of work ongoing on the MCC Road with robust drainages and the Chukwuma Nwoha Sewage Tunnel by Egbu Road.
The flooding and decay of public infrastructures around Owerri, for instance, was screaming when we came into office in January. We have since swung into action and the evidence is everywhere. By the grace of God, we have commissioned a couple of infrastructures, while others are nearing completion and commissioning in no distant time.
The idea is not just to place asphalt on roads and have it washed away by rains in no time. We understand the need for proper earthworks and in most cases, deep excavation of problematic and waterlogged areas.
