Construction of roads in Nigeria is set to receive a boost after Ephraim Inyang, Akwa Ibom State Commissioner for Works confirmed the plans plans to construct roads in the state during press briefing.

He said that talks are underway with the World Bank to support various construction projects in the state.

The construction project that will see 81km of roads in Nigeria constructed commences in different local government areas that will sustain and provide critical infrastructure for the benefit of the people of the state.

However, according to Mr. Inyang the construction works of Ndon Uyo and Etinan Roads, the bridge at Obot Akara and dualisation of the Akwa Ibom Airport Road that connects the Oron Local Government Area is expected to commence on the 22nd day of September this year.

If only the state had enough funds such as the bane of the administration, there is no doubt the Akwa Ibom would have been now a developed State while the citizens will be overwhelmed with joy celebrating the State’s improvement.

Another key issue is the oil price and that if oil prices were as high as before, more projects would have been completed with so much development achieved in the State.

The State government has however, collaborated with the World Bank to support several project including the Akwa Ibom State Community and Social Development Project that aims at providing sustainably increased access of the poor to improved social and infrastructure services to benefit the state people.
