He pointed out that the existing peace in the state has brought security and rapid development, especially in the rural areas, saying: “Thank you (Ugwuanyi) for this great honour you have done to me. I thank you for wiping away my tears”.

His words: “Since 1999, I have never been to Enugu and stayed more than two weeks. But since this governor came, I have been in Enugu for the past six months. This is because of the peace he has entrenched.”

Gov. Ugwuanyi stated why his administration was compelled to construct the bridge. He said it was because of the need to unlock the tremendous opportunities for the benefitting communities. Which is in line with the state government’s rural development agenda.
