East-West Road Now Free Of Pot Holes, Says Amaechi
The Minister of Transport, Mr Rotimi Amaechi has said has expressed satisfaction on the ongoing dualisation of the East-West road project which connects the Niger Delta region.
The Minister who accompanied his Niger Delta counterpart for the inspection of the section II Subsection II of the East-west road from Warri, Delta State to Port-Harcourt, Rivers state, said contrary to negative reports the road has been reconstructed and not abandoned.
“My initial knowledge on what our opponents are saying, is that we have abandoned the East-West road. We drove all the way from Warri without heating any bad road. So, in some areas, one lane has been completed, in some areas, the two lanes have been completed. So, it means that you can drive all the way from Warri and to Port Harcourt without having to issues.”
“If I didn’t come, i would have been among those that think that nothing is happening in the Niger Delta. That’s why I told all the transportation Correspondents to come and see things as they are. If it is bad, they should report it that it is bad. But, I am sure you will not report that it is bad because we drove all the way from Benin to Port-Harcourt and there was no pot hole,” he said.
