Erosion threatens road linking Jonathan’s home town

Erosion is now threatening to cut off the failed Onuebum Road linking Otuoke, former President Goodluck Jonathan home town in Ogbia Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.


The road, which straddles Otuoke, Agbura, Azikoro communities and the Julius Berger axis of Sani Abacha expressway in Yenagoa, has been a source of concern to motorists in recent times.

Though riddled with several craters, it remains the quickest route to Otuoke, which also hosts a federal university.

Findings revealed that the eroded section of the route between Onuebum and Otuoke, which was rehabilitated after the 2012 devastating flood that sacked the state had gradually being washed away.

It was further gathered that but for a volunteer, an elderly man, maintaining the eroded portion, the road would have been cut into two.

Aside motorists plying the ailing route, who have had to contend with the several failed section, traders operating on the route are also disturbed by sad turn of turn and the attendant low traffic.



  1. It’s Buhari and Fashola’s fault. They received 51trillion and could not fix this road. It’s because they are Muslim that’s why they haven’t fixed this road 😉

  2. And so what ? Do they need roads? After all, they will be flying into the town through private jets or go to through private flying boats
