A former House of Assembly Aspirant for the Ndokwa East Constituency Seat, Engr. Philip Ugbomah has hailed the final approval of the construction of the bridge between Kwale-Beneku across the Ase River as a sign that the pains of the people who had been using canoes and pontoon as means to connect to the two communities, and other settlement in the Ndokwa east, will soon be over.

He stated that, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa had made the promise, when the traditional ruler of Okpai kingdom visited him, and the governor had kept to that promise.

“The use of pontoon and canoes is an old practice, and this is overdue. But thank God for our amiable Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa for keeping to his words. He promised the traditional ruler of Okpai he will construct the bridge, and he had fulfilled that promise.”

“With this approval, the pains of the people of Ndokwa East, especially those that use that river for their business and going to their places will soon be over. I thank the governor for keeping to his word.”

However, the successful Civil Engineer, and Managing Director of CPU Construction Company, has appealed to the state government to approve more bridges and roads for the Ndokwa East, as large expanse of the area is not motorable, especially during the rainy season.

“Ndokwa East still needs more attention. We need more roads, bridges and I appeal to the state government to come to the aid of the area. The area is a blessing to the state. It’s not just in terms of oil and gas deposits, but also in terms of food production, which if given attention will generate huge employment for the citizens of the state.”
