Abia Governor sympathetic over traffic congestion

06 August 2015, 16:11Okoro Chinedu

Lagos – The Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu, has sympathised with the people of Aba and the environs over the traffic jams experienced by motorists and other road users on the Aba Owerri road.

The congestion is also experienced at other areas where work is in progress.

Godwin Adindu, the Governor’s spokesperson, said this was due to the road rehabilitation work currently being executed by government on those facilities.

The Governor therefore appealed to the people of Aba and commuters to endure the temporary inconveniences as the rehabilitation work will be completed within a week.

“He stated that as a resident of Aba, he personally goes through the traffic hurdles everyday and do appreciate the suffering of the people, adding that the sacrifice has to be made once and for all for the general good of all,” said Adindu.

He thanked the Aba people for the understanding and cooperation they have shown in the face of the massive infrastructural renewal exercise going on in the city, stressing that the progress so far made would not have been possible without their solidarity.

“He used the occasion to re-assure the people that the Aba project is dear to his heart and that all his campaign promises would be fulfilled to the letter,” Adindu said.
