The Abia state government yesterday flagged off the construction of 3.5km Osisioma Ekeakpara road that stretches from Osisioma to Owerrinta, terminating at about 56.5km. Governor Alex Chioma Otti flagging-off said the project will take a total of 12 months to complete, It is also worthy to note that the nominated contractor, Willangy Construction Company, was awarded the same contract in 2021 by the past administration.

He said that the reconstruction of the Osisioma-Ekeapkara Road is part of his administration's strategic agenda to create many access roads into and out of Aba, decongest traffic, and increase the windows of economic opportunities for the people.


Governor Otti’s words were, "We have come together in continuation of our consistent efforts to restore the old glory of this city after decades of ruin orchestrated by willful neglect, crass irresponsibility, and a pathetic failure to appreciate the full significance of Aba to the economic health of the State, the country, and the West African Subregion.


"For decades, Aba was synonymous with trade, commerce and industry; but it was more. This city transformed the economic destinies and fortunes of many individuals and communities.


"For many of us, who saw the magic of this city growing up, the deterioration of the last two decades and a half have been nothing but heart-breaking and this emboldened us to ride in unism to resist the jackals, who profited selfishly from the ruins of this great city. 


"We said enough, and refused to back down until we achieved the first leg of victory in what will likely be a marathon race to take back our land, and rebuild it in a way that those coming after us will be proud to continue the trans-generational task of keeping this city alive to it's age old promise of growing tiny seeds into giant trees," the Governor affirmed.

However, Observers have wondered about the scope of the project, the cost, and why only 3.5 km of this road was chosen for repairs when the total length of Osisioma to Owerrinta, where the road terminates, is about 56.5 km.


As construction gets underway, residents and stakeholders eagerly anticipate the tangible benefits that the revitalized road infrastructure will bring to that part of the state.
