Delta State Executive Governor Dr.Ifeanyi Okowa said his administration will celebrate the Ughelli -Asaba dual carriageway to accommodate the expected heavy traffic from Warri port.
The governor made the statement during quarterly interactive session with the Press.
My administration is working to accelerate the completion of the Ughelli-Asaba dual carriageway to accommodate expected heavy traffic from Warri Port.
When I came into office in 2015, one of my priorities was to complete the Ughelli-Asaba road. Now, my administration is working round the clock to complete Section C of the road, the area from Ossissa to Asaba between November 2019 and April 2020.
It is my hope that when the Federal Government, through the Nigerian Ports Authority, dredges the second part of the Escravos Bar, we will have more ships coming into Delta State, and the roads to convey the people, goods and services to and from the port the statement concluded.
