Obiano flags off N5bn flyovers to ease traffic in Awka
Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State Monday flagged off the construction of three flyovers in Awka, to ensure hitch-free traffic in the capital city.

The flyovers, which are to be constructed at Aroma, Kwata and Amawbia junctions along the Enugu-Onitsha Expressway in the city, with a tunnel to ensure free flow of traffic, will cost the state N5 billion.

Performing the ceremony at Aroma Junction, Obiano said the contract had been awarded to IDC Construction Company, which is reconstructing the expressway from Amansea to Amawbia junction.

The bridges, the governor said, were also part of his administration’s effort to transform Awka to a modern city.

He said the state capital would also witness the construction of the Three Arms Zone, a five-star hotel, a 5, 000 sitting-capacity conference centre and a shopping mall that would commence soon.

Governor Obiano, who assured that all the roads that his administration would construct in the area would be complemented with street light to change the skyline of the state capital said: “During our campaigns, one of the promises we made was to transform Awka and we will not relent in achieving this. What we require is the cooperation of the people as we will not hesitate to deal with anybody who foments trouble in the state.”

some of these governors believe that living luxuriously is the first line of business when they enter office instead of investing in things that generate economic growth for the state.

I would think considering the fact that Anambra in its current incarnation has been around since '91 (I believe) would have a governor's mansion and the associated buildings?

Does this mean Obiano will abandon the home Obi built (and it will just sit there) or will it be converted to something else?

Good question! I guess he was living in some boys quarters somewhere... :bash:

I don't know about all these new buildings that have absolutely NO local architectural context.... nah wah

Also I hope this is just typical Naija reporting madness...
