The huge financial implications of these two major roads on the side of the state government can’t be over emphasized, but it is instructive to note the shared prosperity government ably led by Governor Hope Uzodimma is determined regardless of the apparent financial obstacles to give Imo the best of roads.
The Regional Manager of Julius Berger (South East), Mr. Fisher expressed readiness of Julius Berger construction company to partner with the state government in the development of the state through her shared prosperity mantra.
