The Delta State Government has approved the reactivation of the Airfield Ground Lighting Systems (AGLS) at the Asaba International Airport.
Speaking after the State Executive Council (EXCO) meeting held in Asaba on Tuesday, the Commissioner for Information, Mr. Patrick Ukah, said that the components of the AGLS along with others that have been previously installed but were affected by the reconstruction works require reactivation to enhance flight operations especially with the expected upgrade of the airport on completion of the rehabilitation works.
The Council also approved additional works for the remodeling of the Central Hospital in Asaba which entails the remodeling of the hospital and the redesigning of the accident and emergency unit theatre and wards.
Further approval by the EXCO include the renaming of Agulu Secondary School, Asaba, to Afadia College, Asaba. The school was approved by the state government in August, 2017 and now has a student enrolment of 174.
Two additional roads were equally approved by the Council. They are the construction of Okuomowa Road, Osubi, to link Etakpo Lane/Macnero Road, Okuokoko, and the construction of Bethel Oborevwori Crescent/Humphrey Odili Street, Osubi, to link James Ovie Street, Okuokoko, both in Okpe Local Government Council.
