The Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Chinedum Orji has once again commended the Governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu for embracing the need to give infrastructure in the state a face-lift despite the state’s lean resources.
Rt. Hon. Orji who was speaking on Thursday at the commissioning of the newly constructed first phase of Umuobiakwa-Owo-Ahiafor Road, Obingwa Local Government Area in his goodwill message, noted that Governor Ikpeazu has been embarking on what he described as landmark projects in the state including the completion of the construction of the first phase of Umuobiakwa-Owo-Ahiafor road which was commissioned by Senator Walid Jubril, the Chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT) of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
According to the Speaker, “The socioeconomic importance of this road to the people cannot be overemphasized because this road connects our state with other neighbouring states which makes it even more strategic”, the Speaker said.
He commended the Governor “for maximizing the limited resources in the State and ensuring that the people have a sense of belonging in governance. He urged the Governor not to relent in doing more for the people.
Speaking at the event, the governor of the state noted that the road is a strategic economic road which he explains, connects to legendary Onicha Ngwa Hospital and also acts as an alternative route to Akwa Ibom State.
According to the governor, the benefiting communities would for the first time in its history find an access road to Aba and Umuahia and charged the people to protect the road by ensuring that no bonfire is set on the road and that the drainages are always clean.
He said commissioning of roads will continue until his last day in office, saying that he is in government to affect lives positively and thanked the State House of Assembly for the solid support given to him to perform.
The Governor used the opportunity to restate his commitment to the PDP and said that he will henceforth cease from addressing the issue of defection.
