Abia State Commissioner for Information,Chief John Okiyi Kalu has said that the present adminstration under the leadership of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu places utmost priority on economically viable roads with a bid to promoting Trade and Commerce in the state.

The Commissioner stated this at the commissioning of the Immaculate Heart Road,constructed by the Ikpeazu adminstration which was done with rigid pavement technology.


He noted that road infrastructure is very important to the Ikpeazu administration as it would create a better life for the people and promote Trade and Commerce in the state.

The Information Boss reiterated that the present administration is committed to bringing democracy dividends to Abia people adding that the strategy of massive road construction in Abia is aimed at pushing the frontiers of development in all facets of the State economy.

He said: “In Abia we prioritize economically important roads and Immaculate Heart Road is one of them.


“This road leads to Umungasi market and also leads to a cluster of resident areas in the city where our people do business and we think that we can stretch this road all the way across the waterside river and do another bridge that will head to Ogbor Hill while a spot from here will also lead to Star Paper Mill”.


Okiyi noted that the state Government will also ensure the completion of Omuma and Ngwa Roads which he described as key roads in Aba,the commercial nerve center of the state.



The Commissioner expressed belief that additional 250 kilometer roads will be delivered to rural communities in the state.


He appealed to residents and business owners around the area to ensure adequate maintenance of the road and avoid waste disposal in the drainages while applauding the contractor for a job well done.
