Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, has visited his Delta State counterpart, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, to discuss issues of inter-state security, economy and road safety ahead of the yuletide.
Governor Obiano said that the visit was in the bid to strengthen the mutual relationship existing between the two states.
The meeting held on Wednesday at the Delta State Government House in Asaba, south-south Nigeria.
It had in attendance, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, whose attention was called to the area of road safety, especially at the Bridge Head axis where traffic gridlock is always experienced.
Addressing the press at the end of the closed-door meeting, Governor Obiano said some of the issues discussed touch upon strengthening inter-state partnership.
He listed the areas of focus to include security, economy and supporting the FRSC to ensure free flow of traffic during the Christmas period.
Dr. Okowa, on his part, expressed confidence that the cooperation of the two states, which he said was the best way to go, would yield positive results for the two sister states in the area of security.
In his response, Mr Oyeyemi assured the governors of immediate dismantling of road blocks, removal of obstruction and reduction of the strength of both military and police check points.
