Ikpeazu invited his Ebonyi State counterpart, Engr. Dave Umahi to enjoined him as he flagged off the road.
It will be recalled that Governor Ikpeazu recently visited the dilapidated Port Harcourt, which he tagged as a Federal road project, and promised to fix.
Speaking before he officially flagged off the reconstruction of the road, governor Ikpeazu said; "Port Harcourt Road is a federal government road; unfortunately there are no federal citizens. So, we are touched.
"Initially, you are aware that we have been waiting for AfDB (African Development Bank) to give us facility to go into that road and give it the kind of touch we are giving to Faulks road and other areas. But the thing is delaying; we are almost marking our second year anniversary.
"We think that because of the strategic nature of Port Harcourt road where they manufacture machine tools and fabrication, to bring them to support our battle for the growth of SMEs in our environment, we look into Port Harcourt road at this time. And going there shows that we have developed interest. I have asked some good contractors to look at it. Very soon, we will advertise that road. We will do it." Governor Ikpeazu declared.
