He noted that when added to the thirty –six communities in Orumba North and South which his government has given light through a dedicated feeder from Oji River Power substation, the project will significantly contribute towards his government's efforts at addressing the electricity challenges in the state.

Governor Obiano also announced that his government will in its second term commence the Dualization of major roads in Nnewi, Awka and Onitsha to make for free flow of traffic in the cities, while eight more bridges will be constructed in the three senatorial districts of the state.

According to him, all these have been factored into the state 2018 budget and the implementation will start immediately the budget is passed by the State House of Assembly.
