Earlier, Senator Adams Oshiomhole appreciated the presidency on behalf of Edo people for its prompt response and mobilizing contractors to site, stressing that, Edo people and indeed, other commuters on the road can now heave a sigh of relief as they ply the road for their various activities.

Thanking specially the Minister of Works, Engr Dave Umahi, Comrade Oshiomhole noted that, within few months, he has put in place actions to solve a problem that four to five ministers before him could not solve in decades.

“we appreciate your effort and commitment to this job. Hon Minister, on behalf of the people of Edo State, and my distinguished brother, Senator Monday Okphebholo, and the entire Edo community represented here by Maj-Gen Cecil Esekhaigbe, and others, we want to send our gratitude through you to Mr President”, Oshiomhole said
