The Delta state government has approved additional works for the remodeling of the central hospital in Asaba.
Speaking after the state executive council meeting held in Asaba on Tuesday, the commissioner for information, Mr. Patrick Ukah, said the works entail the remodeling of the hospital and the redesigning of the accident and emergency unit, theatre and wards.
The council also approved the renaming of Agulu Secondary School, Asaba, to Afadia College, Asaba. The school was approved by the state government in August, 2017 and now has a student enrolment of 174.
Further approval by the EXCO includes the reactivation of the Airfield Ground Lighting Systems (AGLS) at the Asaba International Airport.
Components of the AGLS along with others that have been previously installed but were affected by the reconstruction works require reactivation to enhance flight operations especially with the expected upgrade of the airport on completion of the rehabilitation works.
Two additional roads were equally approved by the council. They are the construction of Okuomowa Road, Osubi, to link Etakpo Lane/Macnero Road, Okuokoko, and the construction of Bethel Oborevwori Crescent/Humphrey Odili Street, Osubi, to link James Ovie Street, Okuokoko, both in Okpe local government council.
