With the award of over four hundred kilometres of road constructions across the three senatorial districts of the Anambra State, Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo has no doubt gone down in history as a record breaker.
This is moreso because the Governor achieved this feat in less than two years life span of his government. Out of the total number of strategic roads, many have been completed, many are under various stages of completion, while contracts for many more were recently awarded.
Little wonder the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) described the road projects embarked upon by the Anambra State Governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, as superb.
According to the FRSC Sector Commander, Anambra, Mr Adeoye Irelewuyi, the road projects would aid road safety and reduce mishaps to its barest minimum in Anambra State.
Mr Irelewuyi was speaking at the flag-off of the 2023 Ember Months Safety Campaign held in Onitsha with the theme – ‘Speed Thrills But Kills, Drive Responsibly and Avoid Overloading’.
The Sector Commander revealed that one of the things that make people go above the speed limit is when they are delayed due to bad roads, saying that when the roads are bad, motorists encounter delay in travel time.
“If the roads are good, people can plan their travel and there will be no need to over speed”.
He commended Governor Soludo who he stressed had diligently embarked on fixing the roads across the state.
“I believe that the road construction and rehabilitation are efforts and support for road safety because they will help to curb speed violation and crashes on our roads,”he added.
Speaking, the Commissioner for Transportation, Barr. Patricia Igwebuike, said Governor Soludo maintained that road safety is a collective effort involving the government and road users.
