A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Mr. Paul Ikonne, has called on the state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, to urgently make the roads in Aba motorable.
Ikonne, who made the call in a statement in Abuja on Monday, said the rehabilitation of the roads would ease the suffering of Aba residents.
He described Faulk Road, Ariaria International Market Road, Port-Harcourt Road, Osusu Road, Uratta Road and Ngwa Road, among others, as death traps.
He said, “What we expect the governor and the government of Abia State to do on these roads is to at least make them motorable in order to alleviate the sufferings of Aba residents.
“I plead with Governor Okezie Ikpeazu to come to the rescue of Aba people, as the major roads in Aba have become death traps.
“I heard that some of these roads have been awarded to Setraco; which is a good step, but surprisingly, contractors are not on site and the roads are no longer motorable.
“I plead with the government to do a quick intervention pending when the contractors will be mobilised to site.”
