African Development bank’s, AFDB, delegation from Abidjan, led by Mr. Mwila Aeron katambula, has visited Abia State to inspect facilities in the state and to ascertain the states readiness to partner with the bank in the areas of infrastructure development.

Led by the Commissioner for Works, Eziuche Ubani, the team visited the Aba Bridge popularly known as waterside where they identified the need to quickly relocate the Abatoir and convert the area to other economic use owing to the health challenge posed by the abattoir and the significance of the area to Aba. The team noted that its policy of Urban Town Transport goes in line with land use planning and urged Abia to upscale its priorities in areas of urban development.
At the Ikot Ekpene Road, which links the urban centre to Akwa Ibom State, the team said the economic importance of the area cannot be over emphasized. They highlighted the need to set up policies to ensure not just the road repairs but sustainability of the system.
The team also visited Obohia, Ohanku and Port Harcourt Roads.

Addressing newsmen, Commissioner for Works, Eziuche Ubani noted that the team was in the state on site inspection, and to identify how best to fast track the project across the three geo political zones.
Eziuche explained that the project is in partnership with the state government.
He added that it would cover about 62 roads spread across the state.

The Co-ordinator of Abia State Integrated Infrastructure Management Project, Bob Ogu, who conducted the team round the facilities, stated that the projects are expected to gulp a two million dollars loan from the African Development Bank.
According to him, the project is in three components, which includes road infrastructure, waste management and erosion control.

With the assessment and consultations with the governor, commissioners, and some stakeholders in the state having come and gone, Abians look forward to a partnership that will place Abia among the comity of states in the country especially in infrastructure development.
