Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has said road construction remains his priority and will continue to award road construction to connect communities until his last day in office.

Okowa, who spoke through his Information Commissioner, Mr Charles Aniagwu, said so on Tuesday shortly after the Executive Council meeting, where he approved a 30km road project.

He said: “The meeting of the Executive Council of the State presided over by Governor Okowa, with the aim of completing the solid and approved construction of many roads.

“Some of the road projects include 2.05 km Kokodiagbene to Warri road in the southwest; 10.85 km Ute-Okpu/Ute-Enugu Road at Ika North-East and 1.5 km Ovie Palace Road at Mosogar, Ethiope West.

“Others are 2.05 km from Kokodiagbene Road in Warri South West; 10.85 km Ute-Okpu/Ute-Enugu Road at Ika North-East and 1.5 km Ovie Palace Road at Mosogar, Ethiope West.

“These roads must connect communities, which means they will facilitate the movement of agricultural products from one community to another. We continue to approve projects, not only to allow us to finish strong, but also to reach several rural communities and urbanize them.

“Governor Okowa was committed to building roads until the last minutes of administration.”

Aniagwu also revealed that the Executive Council had approved the upgrading of sports facilities in the state, including the construction of hockey fields, hostels and others.

“You know that Delta State is hosting the National Sports Festival in the last quarter of this year so all facilities in the state need to be upgraded,” he added.
