Residents commend Obaseki over reconstruction of textile mill road
The residents said that the project, on completion, would further open up the area to more economic activities and make the environment livable.
Speaking to journalists in Benin City, they commended the governor’s efforts at bridging the infrastructure gap in the area and improving the livelihoods of the people.
A transporter, Mr. Philip Asekevwe, however, charged him on the timely completion of other sections of the road.
Asekevwe said, “We appreciate the governor for the reconstruction of the road. While we state unequivocally that the governor has done well, we use this opportunity to urge him to ensure the completion of this small part of Ogida Market Junction.
He said, “The people of this area are elated and impressed with the governor’s performance. This road was inaccessible for several years before the governor awarded its reconstruction and today, everyone can see a great improvement. As motorists, we can now ply the road; the reconstruction work has further helped us to reduce the rate at which we visit the mechanic for repairs of our cars.”
On his part, a landlord in the area, Mr. James Ekuase, lauded the governor for considering the people in his administration’s massive infrastructural development drive.
Also speaking, another resident Mr. Soetan Gabriel observed, “I have plied this road for over seven years now and the situation has not been this good. We thank God for this present administration that has come to help us out.”
