Addressing newsmen on Sunday, after he was taken round the round by the Managing Director of Julius Berger, Dr Lars Richter, the minister of Works, Engineer David Umahi, described the job as “impeccable, very beautiful and well completed”.

Speaking further, the minister revealed that there are plans to commence solar light installation on the road in coming weeks.

“What we have agreed is to deploy solar solution in the coming weeks so that every night we don’t have to run diesel.

“The roads are going to be completed when we have completed the two interchanges, one is taking us off from Asaba town to cut off the traffic, and the other one is going to be done by Reynolds Construction Company (RCC) Ltd to avoid Onitsha town and take you straight to Obosi.

“President Ahmed Tinubu is very committed to the project, and we are going to acquire more so that we can build service stations, filling stations, restaurants, supermarkets and other facilities as we see in the Western world.

“We are determined to do that; the need to do this with the interchanges is going to be a very smart one so that over the years we can have a beautiful and maintained road,” he said.

Speaking also, Richter said the event was a technical handover after the project was inaugurated by the former administration.

He said work was successfully completed in time and Julius Berger had delivered the highest quality of work.
