Three roads reconstructed by the Abia State government in Aba have been commissioned by Governor Alex Otti.
The roads that were commissioned on Sunday by the governor were MCC by Old Express Road, Umuimo Road and Udeagbala Road, which is a bypass that crosses through the Abia State University Teaching Hospital and evacuates traffic from the busy roads in Aba.
In his speech during the events, the Abia governor said the completion of the projects would contribute to the revitalisation of the economy the state, noting that his administration is building solid and durable infrastructure.
Otti, who said that many road projects in Aba were awarded to “inexperienced construction companies” in the past, said his administration was careful in selecting tested civil engineering firms for the three roads.
He noted that the road projects were part of his campaign promises to the residents and investors in Aba.
The Abia governor assured that no part of Abia State would be neglected in his ongoing road construction and rehabilitation program.
Otti, who declared that he is only answerable to God and the people that elected him, promised that more roads would be built in the Enyimba city.
He therefore tasked Aba residents to regularly pay their taxes to the government, to enable him build more structures.
