South East Roads Need Urgent Attention, Vice President Osinbanjo.
During an interview at the cathedral church of Good Shepherd in Enugu, the Vice President of Nigeria has insisted that the most overt problem ravaging the south east is the nature of their roads and so requires immediate attention from the Federal Government.
The vice president who attended a wedding at the cathedral in Enugu told the journalists that he has discussed the issue with Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu state citing that the federal government is aware of the problem.
He though said it wont be an easy task knowing fully the financial constraints we are into right now but assured that the government would look into it.
“One problem that the people of the South-East have is roads. You know what our financial constraints are, and there is a need for improvement on roads where there is a lot of commerce and movement of people. There is need to raise the value of naira by discouraging importation of some items so that the economy will improve.”
Meanwhile, responding to his speech, the Arch. Bishop of the Enugu Anglican communion, His Grace, Emmanuel Chukwuma appealed to the Federal Government to help the youth who are roaming the street unemployed by creating job opportunities for them.
