The governor of Abia State, Dr Alex Otti on Sunday inspected the ongoing road projects in the commercial hub of the State, Aba.
Otti who was accompanied by some members of his team, expressed satisfaction over the quality of work being done by the construction giant, Julius Berger.
During the tour, he also announced readiness of his administration to dualise Omuma Road and link it with Old Express Road, Cemetery and Osusu Roads.
According to him, this will be activated once the relocation of the electricity line is completed.
Otti said, “Yesterday, I visited Aba, in the company of some members of my team, to inspect the ongoing road projects at Port Harcourt Road, Old Court Road, Ndoki Road and Omuma Road.
“We were impressed with the progress of work on Port Harcourt Road. The contractor, Julius Berger Plc, has assured us that the road will be ready for use by December 2024. We also have plans to dualise Omuma Road and link it with Old Express Road, Cemetery and Osusu Roads. This will be activated once the relocation of the electricity line is completed. Ndoki Road will also be completed in record time. We expect a marked improvement on the road before this year’s rainy season. The construction will extend to the Good Morning Market as well as Old Court Road and adjoining streets.
“We are grateful to the residents of Aba, who welcomed us warmly and expressed their appreciation for the work we are doing. We appreciate their cooperation and kindness to the contractors and workers. They have demonstrated that they are true partners in progress and development.
“We also seized the opportunity to appeal to them to maintain good sanitary habits and keep their environment clean and healthy. As we complete these roads, we will not tolerate littering and dumping of refuse on the roadsides or in drainages. We are providing waste bins for households and business owners, so they can dispose of their waste properly.”
