May 12 (Newshour.com.nv) – Amb. Ikenna Offo, United Nation Peace Ambassador, has raised alarm on the deplorable condition of Umueri Airport Road.
According to the global diplomat, driving straight to the newly built Anambra State cargo/passenger airport through Umeri route which happens to be the shortest route to the only functional airport in Anambra State was quite a disappointing experience.
He expressed concern over the deplorable State of the Umeri airport road on his way back to UK enroute the newly built Anambra State airport and called on the authorities concerned not to abandon that important route to the airport.
Amb. Offor disclosed that at the time he travelled through the seemingly abandoned road was the shortest route to the only Anambra State passenger/cargo airport, there was no sign of road work or earth moving
equipments at that road, yet we’re almost in full rainy season.
The global diplomat revealed the social economic relevance of thar road, and challenged the gentlemen of the press to investigate as watch dog of the society and report accordingly for general good.
He lamented that relevant authorities are probably not quite aware of the deplorable state of that road given the current Anambra state administration positive drive in infrastructural development aimed at attracting both internal and external investors to the state tagged “the light of the nation”.
As first point of contact for all(investors/potential investors and others) coming to Anambra by air, this Umueri airport road presumably under construction shouldn’t be delayed anymore in order not to be completely washed away this rainy season.
When completed, this quite important Umueri airport road will obviously assist in addressing a number of socio-economic and security challenges in Anambra state, adding that this in turn would help in driving current administration endeavour in all fronts aimed at ensuring a sustainable peace and development in the State and the nation at large.
