The road connecting Amadi and Yei River State has been re-opened five years after it was closed due to insecurity, says the governor of Amadi.
The road links Bangolo in Amadi with Yei through Mbogo.
Last month, Amadi state governor Joseph Ngere visited Yei River state to assess the situation of IDPs who were displaced from Amadi.
He said in that meeting they discussed how to address insecurity between the two states and re-open the road.
Governor Joseph Ngere told Eye Radio on Friday that the road is now accessible to the communities in the area.
“I actually met youth who went from Bangolo, Tore-wande, from Dipo from the side of Amadi state who are in Yei. Some went to bring items for trade and others went to access health services,” he said.
“That means the road is open for people who are moving freely there.”
The Governor said the road will also allow them to go to Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
He said he has also discussed with the governor of Terekeka to re-open the road between the two sates which he says has remain closed due to insecurity.
