Governor Otti Inspects The Progress Of Road Rehabilitation Currently On Going In Aba


Abia State Governor, Dr. Alex Otti, OFR, has expressed satisfaction with the progress of work on Port Harcourt Road and other road projects currently going on in Aba, assuring that some of the roads will be commissioned soon.

He was speaking while addressing a mammoth crowd of enthusiastic residents who trooped out to receive him during the road inspection visit to ascertain the progress of work on the projects.

Addressing the crowd who chanted solidarity songs in his support, the Governor assured that Omuma Road, which he said will be dualised, will link the Old Express Road, Cemetery and Osusu roads, adding that once the relocation of the electricity line is completed, work on the road will progress.

He urged Aba people to cooperate with the contractors to enable them complete the job on record time as well as to imbibe good sanitary habits.

“We will like to assure you that very very soon all these roads will be commissioned for use.The contractor has also told me that you people have been very kind to them, giving them water, giving them drinks and some of you are cooking and bringing to them.This is the way it should be. If you cooperate with government, government will cooperate with you.

“So, one more thing I will like to plead with our people, because this road has been in disuse for a long time, people have been used to littering everywhere. So I want to appeal to you in advance because as we complete these roads, we are not going to tolerate litter. So we are providing bins for households so you will have somewhere to drop your litter and then we will come twice in a day to cart them away.”

At Ndoki Road,the Governor promised that the road will be completed before the end of this year.
According to him,there will be a marked difference on the road before this year’s rainy season sets in .
Dr Otti said the road will be done right to good morning market and connect the the old court and other adjourning streets.

He disclosed that Ndoki Road in addition to a number of other roads in Aba is being handled through direct labour by the Abia State Ministry of Works and enjoined investors to make haste to invest in Aba to enhance their economic fortunes.

The Governor who also inspected the Port Harcourt Road,Aba,Omuma road ,old Court by Ngwa road, was accompanied by the Commissioner for Works,Engr.Otumchere Otti and conducted round the sites by contractors handling the various road projects.
