We Have Completed Rehabilitation Of 90 Roads In Abia In One Year – Gov. Otti

 

The Abia State Governor, Dr. Alex Otti says his administration has completed the reconstruction of 90 roads at different stages of dilapidation when he assumed office.

Speaking on Friday during his monthly media chat, tagged “Governor Alex Otti Speaks to Abians“, the state Chief Executive said: “Our Ministry of Works did all the 90 roads by direct labour, and some of them fit into our Zero Pothole Policy.

 

“We have reconstructed and rebuilt and inaugurated 16 roads.

 

“We have also worked on another 16 roads at the moment and the total length of the 16 roads is about 165 kilometers running through the different senatorial districts of the state.”

 

The governor said that the State Government had awarded the “long abandoned and very difficult Ohanku Road”.

 

He described the road as very strategic, leading to various settlements in Aba.

 

He further said that the rigid pavement technology would be applied in fixing it.

 

“For those who have visited the area, I am sure that you would confirm that work has started on the road, so also a few other roads in Aba.

 

“We are very strategic about roads because we believe very strongly that access is key to a thriving economy.

 

“We have a plan to touch every road in every Local Government in the next 12 months.

 

“At the moment, we are compiling a list of the strategic roads that we will take on as we go into our second year,” he said.

 

Otti said that plans were underway to secure virement from the 2024 budget for road construction, because “it appears that we are running faster than our budget on roads”.

 

He said that this would enable the government to have enough money to work on more roads and give access to different communities in the state.

 

“The most important thing is that we are moving in the right direction,” he said.
