Governor fixes ‘jinxed’ road, assures on projects’ completion




GOVERNOR Adamas Oshiomhole of Edo State has undertaken tour of ongoing road projects, including the ‘almighty’ Igbinaduwa, 2nd East Circular Road in Benin City perennially believed to be under a spell with a reassurance to complete the projects in tandem with his campaign promises before he leaves office next year.

He also inspected the eight-kilometre‎ primary drain at Igbinaduwa Street as part of the Benin City Water Storm Master Plan aimed at addressing the challenge of flooding which devastated the area in the past.

A resident, Mrs. Kate Orowho, ‎who told our correspondent that many families were forced to abandon their homes due to the floods few years ago, commended the state government for embarking of the project.

But Oshiomhole said that although the entire country was under the impact of cash crunch occasioned by falling oil prices, he, however, noted that his administration had adopted prudence in the management of resources, through effective cash flow budgeting.

“I am satisfied that at this time, when people are debating whether or not people should pay salaries. We are not only paying salaries, we are working. And I have made the point we will not abandon any project. Our task, as managers, is to find solution to unforeseen challenges and make sure that we keep (the) Edo project going.”
