Delta State Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan has said his administration is determined to make Asaba a befitting state capital worthy of attracting investors and tourists.
Uduaghan said the quest to attract investors informed the mega projects including the new Government House, Asaba International Airport, Asaba General Hospital, beautification and reconstruction of roads in the town.
According to a statement, Uduaghan made the promise in Asaba on Wednesday when he visited the Asagba of Asaba, Prof. Chike Edozien.
He said, “Having good roads across the state is part of my administration’s goals. That is why a massive reconstruction and completion of roads is ongoing and it is my belief that with good road network, the movement of goods and services will be easier and safer.”
The governor said due to last year’s unexpected flood that destroyed properties of residents of the state, his administration had embarked on measures to protect the environment and make it safer for the people.
“The disaster was a natural occurrence and there was nothing we could have done to stop it from happening, but I assure you that measures are being put in place to ensure that such a disaster would not cause us to lose lives or properties again,” he stated.
Edozien, according to the statement, commended the governor for the impressive ongoing road project in the state as well as the mega projects in Asaba and assured him of his (Asagba) support.
