Awka - Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra said on Saturday that the government has earmarked N10 billion for various road projects in Anambra East and Anambra West local government areas.

Obinao, who spoke when he launched the second phase of the 11-kilometre Umueze-Anam–Mmiata-Nzam road, said government remained committed to opening up roads to the agrarian communities in the state.

“The roads are strategic as they traverse major food-producing communities and farm settlements. When completed they would boost socio-economic activities in the area.

"Be assured that my administration would continue to spread democracy dividends to all parts of the state, your duty is to vote for the party’s flag bearers in the coming elections,’’ Obiano said.

The Commissioner for Works, Chief Callistus Ilozumba, assured that the projects would meet international standards.
