Nigerian foundation reminds Abia governor of poor state of Aba’s two key roads



Abia State Governor, Dr. Alex Otti, lauded the initiative of the organisers of Abamade Trade Fair and Exhibition

Foundation for Environmental Rights, Advocacy and Development, FENRAD, a prominent pro-democracy and environmental rights advocacy group based in Abia State, south-east Nigeria, has on Saturday brought attention to the state of Ohanku and Obioha roads, two critical motorways in the commercial hub of Aba.

In a statement signed by Comrade Nelson Nnanna Nwafor, Executive Director of FENRAD, the organization emphasized the urgent need for repairs on these strategic roads and expressed confidence in Governor Alex Otti’s commitment to addressing the issue.

Acknowledging Governor Otti’s efforts in areas such as pension administration and infrastructure development, FENRAD commended the governor for his dedication to improving governance in the state.

The group highlighted the governor’s pledge to initiate pension payments during Mass at Christ the King Cathedral in Aba, which led to many retirees receiving long-awaited pension credits.

This move was particularly significant considering the challenges faced by retirees under previous administrations, including delayed payments and discriminatory practices.

FENRAD also lauded Governor Otti’s focus on infrastructure development in Abia State, citing ongoing construction projects on roads like Umuahia-Ohafia-Bende Road and Port Harcourt Road.

The organization welcomed the governor’s announcement of plans to commence work on Obohia and Ohanku Roads post-Easter holidays, emphasizing the importance of addressing the long-standing neglect of these vital roadways.

The case of Obohia-Ohuru-Aba Road, an abandoned project under the Niger-Delta Development Commission (NDDC), was highlighted by FENRAD as a prime example of infrastructure in dire need of attention.

Despite previous claims of completion, the road remained untouched, underscoring the importance of holding accountable those responsible for such projects.

FENRAD’s advocacy for good governance and transparency in procurement processes underscores the organization’s commitment to ensuring that public resources are utilized effectively for the benefit of the community.

In conclusion, FENRAD’s call for action on the state of Ohanku and Obioha roads serves as a reminder of the critical role that infrastructure plays in driving economic development and improving the quality of life for residents.

By holding leaders accountable and advocating for transparency and accountability, FENRAD continues to be a vital voice for environmental rights and good governance in Abia State and beyond.
