Fixing of bad roads in Abia has begun, says Otti

Governor Alex Otti says his government is determined to build roads to enhance trade and commercial activities in Abia.

Mr Otti said this on Sunday during the inauguration of the MCC/Old Express Road in Aba.

The governor said his administration considered building good quality roads as not only critical to improving vehicular movement but to giving businesses the enablement to thrive.

He disclosed that the government had awarded contracts for the reconstruction and rehabilitation of some roads important to economic development.

“We cannot drive the kind of economic rejuvenation that we seek if our most important roads are in bad shape,” Mr said.

The governor said the reconstructed road was a testament that the government had begun a holistic restoration of Aba and other parts of the state.

Mr Otti maintained that the inauguration of the road meant that “Aba is open for business” and called on potential investors to take advantage of the numerous opportunities that abound in Abia.

“Our motivation in government is to create the right environment for individuals to live out the full expression of their dreams. We are also interested in supporting the growth of enterprises and setting up a safe haven for legitimately profitable and sustainable investments,” the Abia governor explained.

Mr Otti also restated the government’s commitment to evolving programmes and policies that would facilitate the creation of the best investment paths and partnerships, further encouraging the government to serve the people better.

Mr Otti added that the Abia government had taken steps to address the issue of perennial flooding in Aba permanently, disclosing that he awarded contracts for the reconstruction of economically important roads in the local government areas.

“We are working very hard to reconstruct several other roads in about nine LGAs through a special multilateral funding arrangement that gives the state a pathway to fix roads to boost agriculture productivity and produce marketing,” stated Mr Otti.
