    the military that gave birth to our type of democracy.
    “You know how the military accumulate power at the centre, to the detriment of the federating units.
    “I believe by the time we take a fundamental amendment to our constitution and restore the autonomy to the states and local governments as far as resources are concern, we would have done away with these very huge bottleneck.
    “It impedes our growth both structurally and otherwise.
    ” So, let me commend the governor and government of Delta for taking the initiative to start implementing the restructuring even before it is constitutionally allowed.”
    Abubakar said the flyover was a huge development, adding that  it was a great honour done to him to inaugurate the project which would greatly impact the people of the state and Nigerians in general.
    Gov. Okowa and Vice-Presidential Candidate of the party, said that the construction of the flyover became necessary to ensure completion of the 161 Kilometres Ughelli-Asaba Dual Carriage Way being constructed by the state government.
    According to him, the Ughelli-Asaba project began by the administration of former Gov. Emmanuel Uduaghan.
    He expressed hope that with the flyover and interchange completed, the huge gridlocks at the Koka Junction would have been addressed.
    The governor thanked the Federal Government for approving the project to be constructed, the construction company and the state ministry of works for the timely execution.
    “This is a major highway, and I want to appreciate the Federal Ministry of Works for giving us permission to construct this interchange and flyover,” Okowa said.
    The Managing Director,  CCECC Nigeria Limited, Mr David Wang, the Project Contractor, lauded the state government for the opportunity, adding that the work was on specification and completed on recorded time.
    Also, Mr Daniel Omodon, State Commissioner for Works (Highways), said the flyover and interchange was borne out of the need to decongest and ease the traffic logjams on Koka Junction, Asaba.
     The PDP Presidential Candidate, Abubakar, who had earlier visited the Asaba traditional ruler, the Asagba of Asaba, Obi Chike Edozien, was also billed to inaugurate  four other projects executed by the Okowa led government.
    The projects included the Model Technical College, Asaba; Mariam Babangida Leisure Park; Delta State Film Village; Mother and Child Specialist Hospital, Owa-Alero.
