A chieftain of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in the South South, Mr Joseph Sodienye on Friday called on the Federal Government to build a dual carriage way network on the East-West road.
Sodienye said the proposed road network would reduce the carnage on the busy road that linked the South South with the South West.
Sodienye, who is the party’s liaison officer in the South South, made these known to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Port Harcourt.
He said that it was important for the Federal Government to complete the road project it initiated on the East-West road to enhance free movement of vehicles and commuters.
‘’Federal Government should hasten the completion of the East-West road network to avoid further accidents,’’ he said.
Sodienye said that the road would play a vital role in the socio/economic wellbeing of Niger Delta region and the entire country.
‘’The road is of major economic importance to the people of the Niger Delta region that produce the wealth of the nation,’’ he said.
