Yesterday during a state broadcast, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa stated that urban-rural migration in the state was rapidly improving with his administration‘s deliberate effort at developing key infrastructure in rural and riverside communities.
“Since assumining office in 2015, this administration has embarked on a total of 799 road projects including riverine communities comprising of 1,577.8 kilometres of roads and 908.8 kilometres of drainage channels,” Governor Okowa.
“As a result of the Asaba Storm Water Drainage project, residents of Asaba and the capital territory are enjoying the rainy season as the massive flooding that used to overwhelm the city is now a thing of the past,” Governor Okowa.
“This administration has constructed, renovated and equipped 8,617 classroom blocks and administrative buildings in primary and secondary schools in the state,” Governor Okowa.
“Our massive investment in road and physical infrastructure has created hundreds of thousands of indirect jobs while stimulating and sustaining growth of the informal sector,” Governor Okowa said.
