Former member of Federal House of Representative, Hon. Prince Ned Nwoko , who just hooked celebrity actress Regina Daniel as his wife has displayed uncommon act of patriotism as he undertakes to deploy his personal funds (100 MILLION NAIRA) to rehabilitate failed portions of the road linking South East and Abuja through Onicha Ugbo/Idumuje Ugboko and Ewohinmi in Edo State.
Ned Nwoko said the agony faced by travellers from the eastern Nigeria to the northern part of the country, moved him to repair the road to alleviate the sufferings of those plying the road.
The road has become a vital short cut for travellers from the South East to the North, including Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory Abuja, but failed after heavy rain falls in recent months.
The single lane road originally constructed by Niger Delta Development Company (NNDC) had become a major transit for travellers from South East and the North thus increasing the economic activities for the towns along its path namely, Onicha Ugbo- Idumuje ugboko- Ewohinmi.
The failed sections of the road exposed commuters to travel delays and other untold hardships, including attacks by hoodlums operating on the Onicha-Ugbo- Idumuje Ugboko axis.
Prince Ned Nwoko said: “I am funding the repairs of the road in my private capacity, to lessen the impact of the suffering of travellers caused by the terrible condition of the road” “This is just a palliative effort, but I will continue even in my personal capacity, to push the Federal Government to urgently undertake a total reconstruction of the road”, he pledged.
The rehabilitation work is expected to be completed in six weeks.
Many commuters have been stranded on other failed portions of other roads linking Abuja and the Southern part of the country, including the failed portion of Oke-Oka axis of Akangba-Owo road in Ondo State.
