The Minister for Works, Power and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola, SAN, will, today 2nd February 2017 storm Abia on a two day working visit to the state.
This was revealed by the Abia State Commissioner for Works, Rt Hon Eziuche Ubani, on behalf of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, the government and people of Abia State.
The visit will be for the benefit of the Abians as it will afford the Minister a first hand opportunity to see the extremely deplorable state of federal roads littered across the state.
Below are some of the federal roads expected the Minister to look into:
1. Aba Owerri Road
2. Port Harcourt Road
3. Ikot Ekpene Road
These are internal roads within Aba.
Then the following Federal inter state roads which connect Abia with neighboring states which have completely collapsed-
1. The Enugu PH highway
2. The Umuahia Ikot Ekpene highway
3. The Aba Ikot Ekpene highway
4. The Ohafia Arochukwu highway
The roads listed above have become a death trap, as many of them have inflicted total hardship to the people of the state, via economic blockade
