Anambra: Proper Infrastructure Not Luxury, Our People Deserve It - Azuka Okwuosa by AmadiAba: 4:01pm On Jun 08
Anambra state, like most parts of Nigeria, is in dire need of an infrastructural facelift. Over the last decade, past governments have made efforts to improve the state’s structural facilities. However, it is of public opinion that these improvements are far from sufficient. More so, IGBERETV correspondent who went round the state observed that some of the facilities put in place have already begun to experience gradual deterioration with little or no attention paid to the maintenance of these facilities. Hon Azuka Okwuosa, APC’s preferred aspirant for Anambra 2021 governorship, discusses his intentions for the state’s infrastructure.

Watch Hon Azuka Okwuosa speak on infrastructure:

According to Hon Azuka Okwuosa, his government will have a three-pronged approach to Anambra’s infrastructural development. The focus will be on power, road construction and maintenance and water supply. These areas are crucial to developing the local industries, which are currently suffering a spike in daily expenses due to insufficient government infrastructure. Small businesses spend a good percentage of their resources on power generation and heavily depend on road connections to transport goods and services; hence, the inadequate supply of power and the poor condition of roads definitely takes their toll on businesses.

Anambra currently generates less than 50% of its required 500 megawatts power demand. This shortfall has resulted in capital flight, closure of manufacturing industries and low performance of companies that have managed to stay afloat. Hon Okwosa’s government will establish an independent power plant fuelled by the available oil and gas in the state to eliminate this problem. The IPP project will make up for the shortfall of power generation, and construction will be done to facilitate future expansion. It will help in the revitalisation of the industries within the state, thereby increasing employment opportunities.

Concerning roads, his government will embark on quality road construction and rehabilitation. The flawed road drainage system responsible for the dilapidated state of Anambra roads will be corrected. Every new route will be constructed with adequate drainage systems to extend the lifespan of the roads. Also, his government will establish road maintenance agencies at the local government and state level. These agencies will be charged with the sole responsibility of maintaining the roads, thereby ensuring their longevity.

Finally, Hon Azuka Okwuosa intends to ensure that clean running water is made available to every indigene, even in the state’s most remote areas of the state. The idea is to employ the skills of experts who will develop an integrated water scheme. Anambra’s extensive reservoir of water bodies gives feasibility to these plans.

In general, Hon Azuka is interested in improving the vital areas of infrastructure that would better the lives of the average Nigerian, upgrade their standard of living, and create a sustainable environment for local businesses and innovation to thrive.

Nigerian Government would pay workers salary (people's 30days sweat) and see that as an administrative achievement. so many souls are being lost due to poor roads, Bandits are attacking Power staff at Kanji dam, No Light, Farmers need to go to farm to earn and provide food for us to buy but are being hacked in their numbers yet Nigerians see these as something to look over without massive reaction from the people?? God is ready to help Nigeria but what are you doing, what is ur struggle for a better Nigeria for him to bless and assist?? What type of life are you living and what Nigeria do you want to leave behind for ur children unborn?? the same hardship and oppression ur going thr now??

I always wondered why Obiano didnt invest the funds he used for the white elephant project called airport in the Power sector. That would have been a killer legacy, but our governments have no foresight and vision.

A better Nigeria all around is all we want.
All we ask for as citizens is basic infrastructures for better lives.

Oil was first discovered in Oloibiri, in Nigeria's Bayelsa State, in 1956.
That was 65 years ago and we cannot boast of just a single refinery in the history of our nation.
Even at the period we made a colossal profits selling this same Oil.
All these money was looted blindly, money running into Trillions of Naira!!!
Monies that could have turned our country to somewhere close to UAE.

We will continue to believe in her.
One day, Nigeria will be the country of our dreams.

God bless Anambra State.
God bless Nigeria.

The politician will show you photoshopped pictures of Dubai in Anambra state. He will promise heaven and earth.

After election and after he has won, Anambra state will still be as it was.

is this what will should be posting alot of nigerians are killed nothing is done.. a man without waec certificate, and also a man who never went to university or had any degree apart from holding gun all through hia life is ruling 200 milloion plus nigerian and nothing is done.
because Buhari supporters are 96% moslems, the are in support of him, even when he does something bad, how will you send soldiers to guide forest?
Then should we be without a leader or government in place. We need responsible individuals with clear vision to ascend the throne. Just like the man quoted above. He has a clear vision, not those that promises heaven and Earth and white elephant projects

Exactly my mind.
Most Anambra roads are bad with poor draining systems.

Was 'our darling daddy' not the first minister of petroleum? They're still in power now maybe you can help us tell them before they leave the government because they're fixing Twitter instead of refineries.
