The Anambra State government led by Governor Willie Obioma is developing a smart city in the heart of the state capital, Awka. The project which has now entered the second phase is expected to be ready before March 2022. This assurance was given by Mr Jide Ikeakor, the Managing Director of Anambra State Investment Protection and Promotion Agency, at the signing of the contract for the second phase of the project.
The estate named “Awka Millennium City”, when completed, will boast of state-of-the-art facilities such as excellent road network, security post, modern drainage system, a hospital, shopping mall, etc.
The project which was initiated in 2019 is intended to provide an opportunity for the citizens of Anambra to build and own houses in a modern environment.
