Governor Alex Otti rehabilitates and commissions three roads to give a facelift to Aba, the commercial capital of Abia State.
They include Udeagbala, Umuimo and MCC/Old Express roads, Governor’s spokesperson, Mr. Kazie Uko, said in a statement.
Uko quoted the Governor as saying that the three roads are strategic as they provide alternative entry and exit routes from Aba.
Udeagbala and Umuimo, the Governor said, serve as entry routes to the busy Aba-Owerri Road and to Abia State University Teaching Hospital (ABSUTH).
In addition, government rehabilitated MCC/Old Express Road to boost the economy of Aba, aka Enyimba City, the Abia State commercial nerve centre.
At the Commissioning, Gov Otti said his vision is “to develop Aba to be a model city that supports contemporary and traditional businesses, family lives and leisure activities.”
He decided on the road reconstructions to demonstrate his commitment to the promises he made to the people who supported him to win a difficult election.
“It is (also) a way of announcing to the world, to businesses at home and oversees that the wholistic restoration of Aba has begun; making it known to deserving investors that the moment they have long waited for is here.
“Our motivation in government is to create a right environment for individuals to live out the full expressions of their dreams, support the growth of enterprises and set up a safe haven, legitimately profitable and sustainable investments.”
Governor Otti praised the speed and job quality delivered by the three project contractors and promised to reward them with more jobs.
He assured that no part of the State would be neglected in his road construction policies, adding that already a few rural roads have been awarded for construction.
