Development Of Rural Infrastructure

Governor Godswill Akpabio has set the pace for radical development of the urban infrastructures. We shall continue with the transformation by endeavouring to repair impassable roads, slippery hills, broken culverts and impassable bridges as well as construct intra-city feeder roads. We shall consult with the paramount rulers, partner with stakeholders and opinion leaders of every community in the construction of roads in the rural areas according to the desirability and priority of each community based on the availability of funds. We will allocate one or two contractors to each Local Government Areas to build standard roads which will eventually aid further development of tourism as the mainstay of the state economy. It will also enable ease of transportation for our farmers to bring their produce to the urban centres. The ROADS MONITORING AGENCY will be operational to check and maintain our roads periodically.
