The former National Auditor of All Progressive Congress (APC) Chief George Moghalu says his party would beat the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and other political parties in the next Anambra state governorship election.
Moghalu who was last year appointed the Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA) said APC would go to the campaign with her impressive report card so that people will know what the political party has done and what APC controlled government would do when they take over, adding that APC is reputed to be a promise-keeping party.
He regretted that for the past 18 years the Second Niger Bridge was a mirage and subject of politic campaigns while portions of Onitsha-Enugu Expressway were used for farming.
The NIWA boss pointed out that the APC government is working day and night on the Second Niger Bridge which according to him would soon be completed and commissioned.
“The Onitsha-Enugu Expressway issue has been settled, motorists have started using the road because the APC government has worked on it. These are issues we will use to sell our candidate to Anambra people who are obviously happy with what the government is doing.” He explained.
Speaking on the activities of NIWA, Moghalu said “National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA) is an agency of government that is responsible for making sure our waterways are cleared, developed, functional and safe. We have responsibility of making our waterways work which will inturn enhance the nation’s economy.
“There is gridlocks in Apapa Lagos wharf and our roads are under extreme pressure by weight of haulage but Nigeria has the potentials of moving these heavy duty imported items by water. The volume of containers that come to Apapa wharf is heavy and to move these containers by road to their final destinations but most of our roads are not designed to carry such weight.” He stated
