The Federal Government has been called upon to prevail on the Ministry of Niger Delta Development Commission to recommence work on the age long deplorable Obehie-Akwete-Azumiri-Akwa lbom federal road.
Speaking with our Aba news crew on the devastating state of obehie -Akwete axis of the Obehie -Akwete-Azumiri -Akwaibom Federal road, the Chairman, Ukwa West Local Government Area, Chief Okey Kanu, some PDP stakeholders and commercial motorists plying the road regretted that the road is now a death trap which they said has severely affected the economic activities and revenue generation of Ukwa West local government.
The Ukwa West Local Government Area Chairman and some PDP stakeholders of the area including the PDP Zonal Secretary, Abia South, Chief Richard Nwagbara, a former PDP chairman, Ukwa West, Chief Endy Enyioko, explained that before now kidnappers converted the Ukwa West Local Government premises to a dumping ground for their victims due to the impassible nature of the road.
They noted that they can now access the Local Government because of the palliative work done by the Council through private partnerships, and affirmed that if nothing is done before the rainy season, the pains of the people will increase.
The PDP Stakeholders thanked the Chairman of the Council, Chief Kanu, for clearing all the bushy areas of the Council and commencing the renovation of the office complexes of the Local Government.
