“We will transform every road leading in and out of Enugu State into a well lit multiple carriage road and superhighways.
“We will embark on massive rural road construction and reconstruction of urban roads.
“The Enugu State Ministry of Works and its Departments and Agencies will be repositioned and empowered with the resources to ensure their effectiveness.
“We understand the challenge posed by resource scarcity, but we have the social capital to attract local and foreign funding as well as the integrity to keep our words”.
