The Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has inaugurated the Idumogo-Uzebu-Iduomon link road and Ekekhen township road in Igueben Local Government Area of the state.
The Governor commissioned the projects as part of his ward-to-ward reelection campaign activities in Igueben LGA.
Senator Clifford Ordia, while commissioning the roads on behalf of the governor, remarked that the projects would open up the rural areas to more development.
“The governor has done well for the people of the state in terms of infrastructural development across the 18 Local Government Areas,” he said.
The President, Ekekhen Community Development Association, Mr Timothy Uwagboe, expressed appreciation to the Governor for the commissioning of the road.
He said, “This is the first time a governor will be visiting this area.
“We appeal to you to extend the same gesture to Ukpo quarters and Okumagba Road, popularly known as the Town Planning roads.”
The Deputy Governor, Mr Philip Shaibu, thanked the people for appreciating the governor for his developmental strides, adding that the Obaseki-led government would not relent in pursuing infrastructural projects to open up rural communities.
