The projects inaugurated on Friday included modern complex of eight magistrate court halls, complex of two High Court halls and one Open Registry at Nsukka Judicial Division, located at the GRA, Nsukka and some road projects in the University town of Nsukka.
Inaugurating the court buildings, Ugwuanyi said that the event marked another significant milestone in his efforts to reposition the state’s judiciary.
He said the inauguration was also to perform his administration’s mandate of ensuring the concordance of the society with all extant laws and tenets of democracy, human rights and fundamental freedoms.
Ugwuanyi said that the inauguration of the Nsukka town roads and the other projects were in fulfillment of his administration’s inaugural address to create more urban areas and also to boost economic growth, equip and to modernise the Nsukka University town.
While noting that the roads would enhance connectivity and access to homes and business premises, the governor recalled that his administration had in its first term delivered the 11.6km Opi-Nsukka dual carriageway with a spur to the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) gate.
Explaining that the carriageway enhanced movement in and out of the University, Ugwuanyi noted that “this road also provides the much needed infrastructural services to the university and showcased the first underground functional drainage system in this part of the world.”
The governor said that the contracts for the roads were awarded to competent contractors, “with proven and verified track records on road construction.”
The Chief Judge of Enugu State, Justice Ngozi Emehelu, thanked Ugwuanyi for inaugurating the projects and for the love and support he has shown the state judiciary since he assumed office.
