President Muhammadu Buhari has today, 13th September, 2022 inaugurated for use, the 37km Owerri to Orlu dual carriage way in Imo State amidst tight security.
The Owerri-Orlu road was in terrible shape before Hope Uzodinma was sworn in as Governor of Imo State on January 14, 2020. He awarded the contract for the reconstruction and dualization of the road to Craneburg – a world class construction company that has today, delivered a solid road project and the first of its kind in Imo since 1999.
Owerri-Orlu road is a very important economic road that cuts across 6 Local Government Areas of the State and the resolve of the Uzodimma-led administration to give it a lasting facelift alongside Owerri-Okigwe road, is a very strategic one, given that it connects two major economic towns of the State aimed to foster trade and movement of agricultural produce from the hinterlands to urban centers.
The joy of Imo people knows no bounds as to the current state of the road, its drains, markings and lightening, as they illuminate hope for better economic fortunes and prosperity.
Mr. President once again poured econmuims on the type of leadership Gov. Uzodimma has provided for Imo people and his gallantry strides in the area of infrastructural development, where he shares similar vision with Gov. Uzodimma.
