The Anambra State leader also lauded the Buhari government for the Onitsha-Awka road project and Social Intervention Programmes in the state.

“Well, I called the president when he won the election and this is the first time I am seeing him physically since after that election,” he said.

“So, I came to congratulate him on his well-deserved victory; that is one, then, I gave him update on the Federal Government projects that are going on in Anambra.

“For example, Second Niger Bridge, which is going according to plan; work is going on there very well; the minister of Power, Works and Housing and myself were at the sites recently and I came to brief him fully–that work is going as planned.

“Secondly, the road they are doing between Onitsha and Awka –17.5km- is going on very well, they have stone-pitched about eight kilometres of that road already and they have asphalted four kilometres already; again, I commended him for that initiative.

“Initially, people thought it was election fluke but you can see long after the elections those works are still going on very well.’’
