Governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu has expressed delight for the completion of the newly constructed Osusu Road, Aba.
The Governor who made this known in a statement on his handle on Thursday said it will last a long time and also promised to sustain the current tempo of constructions going on in different parts of the State.
Ikpeazu lamented the hardship which he said the former derelict road brought on the people, to the extent that plantain trees flourished on the road while commercial tricycles and motorcycles could not use the road.
The Governor said the state of the road made effective waste management difficult in that axis as evacuation trucks could not find their way through.
He further revealed that it got so bad that “EEDC had to cut off Osusu from the National Grid” with businesses and livelihoods ceasing and life virtually coming to a standstill in the area.
