Osisioma flyover ready by December, Ikpeazu to build additional 200km roads before leaving office – Okiyi
By Steve Oko
ABA – The much-expected ‘flyover’ at Osisioma Junction Aba, would be inuagurated by December this year, Abia State Government has assured.
Commissioner for Information, Chief John Okiyi Kalu, who gave the assurance during a live radio programme in Umuahia, said the project had almost be concluded, adding that when delivered, it would help decogest traffic flow in and out of Aba.
Okiyi who said Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu was making spirited efforts to rebuild infrastructure in the state, hinted that the governor would construct more 200 kilometers of road before leaving office in 2023.
On the new list of commissioner nominees that the governor had forwarded to the State House of Assembly for confirmation, Okiyi said “the list comprises experienced and youthful Abians who will help to drive the programs of the state government to a sound conclusion”.
He decried the negative impact of the “reoccuring sit-at-home order” by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, saying the action is dangerously affecting the education of children and economy of the entire Southeast region.
He however, revealed that “all Abia children took their exams safely during the sit-at-home period courtesy of the relentless efforts of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu to ensure same.”
Chief Okiyi advised Ndigbo “to remember who they are”, adding that “Ndigbo have one of their greatest strengths in education which guarantees a winning future for them and stressed the need for Abians to go about their normal business on Mondays, as on any other day, without fear of molestation.”
On the lingering fuel crisis, Okiyi urged Abia residents to exercise patience while the matter was being resolved by the parties involved and wondered why “the problem between NUPENG and a neighbouring state government should be used to punish the masses who are now suffering what they know nothing about”.Steve Oko, Publisher/C.E.O, WaWa News Global.
