Enugu state governor, Hon Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, has assured the enthusiastic people of Enugu that his government was ready for real work and not rhetoric.
He said he would be moving around to see that things are get done rather than recline in office and depend on reports and hearsay.
“We shall not be in the office and hear stories. We have to tell you that we have started to work. We are not here to speak English,” Gov. Ugwuanyi declared yesterday while inspecting a failed portion of Market Road, Ogbete, Enugu.
Ugwuanyi who was accompanied in the inspection visit by his deputy, Mrs Cecilia Ezilo; former Chief of Staff, Victor Atuonwu; the council chairmen of Enugu North, Hon Emeka Ede and Hon Cornelius Nnaji of Enugu East, among other dignitaries, said respective ministries would be visiting the construction work to ensure completion in order to stop the gridlock occasioned by the failed road under construction.
He lamented the slow pace of work at the site and charged the construction firm, Arab Contractors to make haste and complete the road project in record time.
“What we are seeing here, we are not smiling. I promise you that respective ministries will be coming here everyday to monitor the progress of the job.
Earlier, one of the engineers with Arab Contractors assured the governor that within one month, that portion of the road would be completed.
Ugwuanyi therefore called on traders, road users and passersby to give the company one month and told traders who have turned the failed portion of the road into market to remove their make shift sheds and wares from the road to enable work to go on.
