DILAPIDATED MAJOR ROADS IN IMO STATE STILL REMAIN DEATH TRAPS

DILAPIDATED MAJOR ROADS IN IMO STATE STILL REMAIN DEATH TRAPS


Mazi Chidiebere, a diaspora based Biafran citizen of Ikeduru local government area, Imo State, has seriously raised concern pertaining the critical conditions of major roads leading to Owerri town from other parts of Biafraland. This is yet the situation after months of the inauguration of the government of Governor Emeka Ikediohia. Road users face danger of death daily on the roads due to avoidable accidents amongst others.

In an interview with Family Writers Press International, Mazi Chidiebere maintained that the present governor of Imo State appears still unconcerned with the plight of the people. "We thought that the past Governor, Rochas Okorocha was the worst of them all until after the emergence of Governor Emeka Ikediohia from the last governorship election", he further stated.

It is most unfortunate, worrisome and tasking to smoothly and peacefully drive from neighboring states to one's fatherland. On getting to the state capital, Owerri, as a result of very bad condition of major roads. The major road linking Eke-Atta in Ikeduru local government area, to Akabo within the same jurisdiction is really a herculean task traveling to Enugu, Okigwe, Amaraku, Anara, Nkwere, etcetera. His Excellency, Governor Emeka Ikediohia was elected to correct the many errors of the past years. Imo State is blessed with abundant natural resources including the black gold (oil). As one of the major oil producing states in Nigeria with the highest federal government allocation in the South-East region, there need to be provision of basic necessities to the people.

Mazi Chidiebere through this medium, calls on all citizens of good conscience within the State including indigenes at home and in the diaspora, to speak up against the ills the citizens are being daily subjected to. This is the set time to right the wrongs before situation worsens. Imo State indigenes need practical and enduring infrastructures that will alleviate their suffering.
