Nibo, Umuawulu and Mbaukwu communities now have reasons to smile following flag off of the ten kilometers Achalaoji Nibo-Umuawulu-Mbaukwu Road by a philanthropist from Unuawulu, Chief Christopher Ndubuisi.
The event held at Achalaoji junction along Nibo-Isiagu road was in solidarity to the aspirations of the Awka North and South federal constituency hopeful, Chief Azubuike Ekweozor.
ANAMBRA PEOPLE reports that for the second time in few days, people of Awka North and South Federal constituency are receiving quality attention from Chief Azubike Ekweozor whose ambition to represent them at the green chambers is already yielding dividends.
On Friday last week, Ndi Amawbia witnessed the flag off of two major roads in the area, the Ebeakpu Hall Junction to Amawbia Prison and Ebeakpu Hall Junction to the residence of the national chairman of APGA, Chief Victor Oye.
On Saturday, the people of Nibo, Umuawulu and Mbaukwu joined the league of beneficiaries of the large heart of Chief Christopher Ndubisi, the Managing Director Pinatech Construction Company.
Speaking at the event, Chief Ndubisi said that there is no better person to represent them at the green chambers than Chief Ekweozor popularly called, “Ide Umuawulu”, since he has been tested and trusted to help indigent people and listen to the cries of the poor.
The former Majority Leader Anambra state House of Assembly, Barrister Harford Osekein his remarks maintained that the Obizi Constituency has all it takes to represent Awka North and South Federal constituency which was why they decided to support Chief Ekweozor, calling on other communities to give him maximum support to achieve his ambition.

The President General elect of Nibo community Professor Tony Nwokoye, on behalf of the community, promised to support the ambition of Chief Ekweozor one hundred percent, noting that construction of the road will give people of his community a big relief, as the traffic jam witnessed at Eke Nibo will be a thing of the past.

Chief Ekweozor called on Ndi Awka North to meet and agree on two roads that are of great importance to them so that work will commence, and disclosed that work is already on at the Amansea road.
Meanwhile, the benefactor also announced that work will kick off along Achalaoji-Eke Nibo junction to ease traffic in the area.
