Okpanam-Ibusa Road Ready For Inauguration June Ending - Oborevwori

Delta State Governor, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, Tuesday, said the newly completed Okpanam-Ibusa bypass in Oshimili North Local Government Area of the state would be ready for inauguration June ending.

Governor Oborevwori who disclosed this during inspection of the road, observed that gully erosion was threatening the road and directed the contractor to back fill the side drains for the sustainability of the road.

The Governor who was joined on the inspection by the Commissioner for Works (Rural and Riverine Roads), Mr Charles Aniagwu, said: “It is good to be here after the successful inauguration of the Emevor-Orogun road which is very key to the people of Isoko nation.

“On coming back I said let me have a stop over here at the Okpanam-Ibusa road. This is the third time I am inspecting this road which is 5.3km and we have done the binding course of 12 meters while the wearing course is 7.5 meters.

“Before I inaugurate any road I usually go for inspection and I have observed some other threats to this road. You can see the gully erosion here trying to destroy the drain.

“We will look into it and I know that with what I have seen so far, the road is ready for inauguration. It is only the back filling of the drains that they need to do and I know that before this week runs out, the contractor should be able to finish it otherwise the road is fully completed.

“Instead of going round to Koka to Ibusa if you are coming from Agbor this road serves as a short cut and if you are coming from Warri to Okpanam you don’t have to go to Koka junction again.

“The road is a good road and it will serve Deltans not only the people of Ibusa and Okpanam but all Deltans. It is one of the best roads we have done because it is very critical to the economy of the state. By the grace of God we will inaugurate this road by the end of the month.”
