“On Wednesday this week, the 24th of June, 2020, one of the promises has become a reality as the Federal Executive Council approved and awarded the contract for the construction of Iluke to Kupa road. This singular act gladdens the heart of our people and further reassures them that the government of PMB cares for them,” he said.
