This is to inform the general public, especially residents of Aba, that the palliative works currently ongoing along the Port Harcourt – Enugu Expressway with particular reference to the area lying between Ariaria Junction and Uratta Junction are being undertaken by the Abia State Government, sequel to the orders of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu. The contractor doing the work was mobilized by the Government of Abia State.
This clarification has become necessary because some politicians and recently elected State legislators have gone to town with the impression that they are the ones doing the job.
That impression is mischievous, unfortunate and designed to confuse members of the public.
While politicians can showcase the works of the Governor, it is unacceptable for any person to appropriate to himself, any work done by the Governor and create the erroneous impression that such works are being undertaken by them.
The current palliative work is designed to make life easier for our people, especially traders at Ariaria International Market and residents of that area. Such emergency intervention by the Governor should not be made subject of mundane and cheap politicking.
Please be guided.
Onyebuchi Ememanka, Esq
Chief Press Secretary to the Governor.
