The Lawmaker representing Aba South State Constituency, Hon. Obinna Ichita has urged the governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu to order contractor executing road projects in his constituency to go back to their respective construction sites.
Hon. Ichita speaking in a plenary of the House, in H.A.M. 16: Motion for the urgent intervention and immediate reconstruction of some roads in Aba South State Constituency told his colleagues that there was need for urgent intervention on the dilapidated roads in his immediate constituency.
According to Ichita, one of the core responsibilities of every government was the provision of infrastructure, “Roads open up and stimulate economic activities which bring about economic growth, development and enhancement of the well-being of the people; good roads also provide the people access to healthcare, education, jobs and markets which are crucial in the fight against poverty,” he said.
Ichita, a first-time lawmaker said the dilapidated state of some major roads in his constituency which includes Port-Harcourt, Omuma and Obohia among others hamper economic activities in the said areas which result in the impoverishment of his constituents who are already grappling with the harsh economic situation currently bedeviling the entire nation.
Hon Ichita added that urgent intervention of the state government on some of the roads in his constituency would not only alleviate the sufferings of his constituents but also bring succor to a multitude of his constituents who undergo so much stress because of the deplorable nature of their roads.
The lawmaker in his prayers at the floor of the House, while commending the Governor for the roads already reconstructed in Aba, said that the government should order the contractors handling Port-Harcourt, Omuma and Obohia Roads back to site without further delay.
He also appealed that the House should mandate the Ministry of Works to liaise with Office of the Member representing Aba South State Constituency to identify and commence the immediate reconstruction of at least 3 kilometers road along the Uratta axis of Aba South Constituency.
This is as he pleaded the House to urge its compliance committee to ensure that resolution as contained in the motion are strictly implemented by the State Government.
