6 Years After, First Capital Project of Governor Ikpeazu Remains Uncompleted

Governor Okezie Ikpeazu in 2017, commissioned the Osisioma flyover bridge, the first capital project in Abia State, designed to reduce traffic and boost economic activities in Aba. However, the project is yet to be completed up until this period.

According to Channels TV, the flyover project was commissioned by Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, as he stated that funds for the project have been provided, assuring that work on the project will not stop until it is completed.

He further stated that his government is focusing on road infrastructure in Aba to reduce the time spent in traveling between parts of the state and Aba.

Speaking at the event at Osisioma roundabout, Governor Okezie added that the attention given to Aba is yielding results as the internally generated revenue of the state has increased from 600 million Naira to 1 billion Naira every month.

He further noted that Aba made products are becoming popular nationally, as the federal government has ordered Nigerians to purchase made in Aba shoes and products.

Also, the Commissioner for Works, Mr. Bob Ogu, represented by Chief John Okey Kalu, stated that the flyover being constructed by the Abia State government would be completed before May 29, 2021.

However, it has been over 6 years and the flyover project is yet to be completed.

Abia State is known as a commercial state and the citizens and residents of the state have shown that they are hardworking when it comes to business, as they have single-handedly produced different products such as bags, shoes, belts, electronics, etc.

Their ability to produce these products have made people and investors from other states and countries to come into the state and patronize them and also invest in their businesses.

However, the roads leading to Abia state are in a very bad state. Investors and business men have complained about how bad the state's roads are, adding that they had to buy their products from other states because of their bad roads.

These bad roads alone can affect the economic growth of the state and can also lead to a number of road casualties.

Since governor Okezie Ikpeazu entered office, this flyover project is the first capital project he has commissioned in his tenure and so, he can make the people to remember him by fulfilling his promise of not stopping the project until it is completed.
