Umahi commended MTN Nigeria Communication Company for its dedication to the construction of roads across the country under the Tax Credit Scheme.


“I thank MTN for several ongoing laudable road construction projects under the Tax Credit Scheme, we also thank you for your confidence in the country and our government.


‘‘Onitsha – Enugu dual carriage way is a very busy road and if not the most important in South East for our people, it is such a commendable engagement by MTN.


“I visited this road last week , I like what RCC Construction company is doing.


“I am very satisfied with their work, it is very impeccable measure of construction, I will be very happy if we can engage on the 2nd carriageway.

Earlier, the Managing Director of MTN Nigeria and the Chief Executive Officer, Mr Karl Olutokun, said a lot of progress had been made since they started.
