The Abia State House of Assembly has passed a resolution asking the governor, Alex Otti, to ask the federal government to help with the Umuahia-Bende-Ohafia-Arochukwu federal road.
The House also said that the abandoned colonial bridge across the Igu River in Ozu Abam, in the local government of Arochukwu, should be fixed as soon as possible.
It asked the governor to fix up the Ozu Abam-Ndi Okereke-Arochukwu road and other roads in the Arochukwu area so that they don’t fall apart completely.
When Emmanuel Emeruwa, the speaker of the House, talked about the motions in plenary, he asked Orji Uzor Kalu, the senator for Abia North, to join Otti in asking for the Intervention.
The resolutions came after Uchenna Okoro, the representative for the district and the majority leader of the House, brought up a motion about something that was very important to the people.
Okoro had talked to the House about the problem and complained about how bad the roads and bridge were. He also said that they had become death traps all year.
Okoro said that the problem hurts the economy of the agrarian community and that fixing it would make people feel like they belong.
