Residents and business owners in Ugbiyoko, Benin City have commended Governor Godwin Obaseki for the ongoing reconstruction of Ekenhuan Barracks Road, noting that the road which has now been tarred to the Ogede axis of the area has brought succour to the people of the locality.

A cross-section of residents who spoke to journalists in Benin City, said the governor has continued to prioritize projects to improve economic activities in the State and better the lives of the people.

A resident of the area, who was simply identified as Isoken, said that tarring the road has helped to boost the living conditions of the people in the area.

She said that those who were contemplating leaving the area have now jettisoned the idea.

She said, “The governor, Godwin Obaseki, has done well by resuming work on the road. Motorists can now move freely without fear of damaging their cars, while business has improved since the construction resumed.

James Osadolor, who sells building materials in the area, stated that business has improved in the area. He noted that those who abandoned their buildings have returned to site and are buying materials to continue their building project.

He said, “I am very happy that the government has resumed work on the road. I can tell you that business has improved and residents can now move freely to and fro their offices and places of businesses

“I will urge the government to complete the construction of the road before November so that the communities in this area can become developed like other areas in the state capital.”
