The prompt visit by the Commissioner for Road Construction, Furniture and Maintenance Engineer Marcel Ifejiofor , The Managing Director of Anambra State Road Maintenance Agency Engineer Emeka Okoye ,and other Directors in the Ministry of Road Construction to see first hand the level of damage on the road was a demonstration of synergy between the government and people at the grassroots.

When the team arrived the site, It was discovered that one of the two bridges along Nibo-Umuawulu road, has collapsed and the other threatening to cave in.



The collapsed portion of the bridge, a large crowd was seen gathered at the area, most of them lamenting the unfortunate incident, including the Deputy Speaker and member representing Awka South Two, in the State House of Assembly Barrister Harford Oseke who could have used his good offices to repair the road before it cut.

Engineer Ifejiofor who noted that the situation is a natural disaster especially with the constant rainfall, urged motorists plying the route to use alternative roads assuring that the road will be put back to use in the next forty eight hours.

The Managing Director ARMA Engineer Okoye who expressed regrets over the situation and thanked God that no life was lost, said he will mobilise his men to the sites immediately.


On his part, Barrister Oseke who described the situation as unfortunate, appreciated state government for the quick response which he said is a clear indication that the Obiano administration is responsive.

The traditional ruler of the community Igwe Joel Egwuonu who also noted that the havoc would bring untold hardship on the people of the area, and those who pass through the road to Orumba, commended the governor for doing a good job even as he appreciated government for quick intervention on the disaster.
