Senator Kalu decries deplorable state of roads in Abia, appeals to Ikpeazu


Former Governor of Abia State and Senate Chief Whip, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has appealed to Governor Okezie Ikpeazu to consider fixing some of the important roads in the state.

Senator Kalu in a terse statement forwarded to DAILY POST on Saturday, listed the dilapidated roads as Umuahia-Uzuakoli, Akara-Alayi, Igbere-Item and Abiriba-Ohafia roads.

The ex-Abia Governor also dismissed the insinuations that the deplorable roads are federal Infrastructure, insisting that they are state Infrastructure.

According to him, “Despite not falling into my senatorial role, I had initially appropriated One Billion Naira as part of the 2021 capital project, but the Federal Ministry of works is yet to take action on it.

“When I was Governor, I built the road and maintained it. Ever since I left, there has been no new investment on the road despite being one of the busiest roads in Abia”, he added.

Kalu further called on the State Governor to ease off the stress on that road by taking urgent action on it.
