Gov. Otti Inspects Ossah Road Project, Says One Lane Will Be Ready For Christmas

The executive governor of Abia State Governor, Dr. Alex Otti, OFR, has assured that one side of the six-lane Ossah Road\ Okpara Square to Tower project, will be ready for use by Christmas.

Governor Otti stated this on Thursday while inspecting the ongoing construction work on the 3.5km carriage, a major gateway into Umuahia, the state capital.

He assured that with the dry season setting in, work will progress steadily on daily basis to ensure that the work is delivered within the time frame.

“I have been assured that at least one side would be ready for commuters to use during this Christmas,” the Governor said.

Governor Otti explained that he was motivated to begin the expansion of the road to six lanes from the initial four lanes due to the congestion usually experienced on the road, especially during festive seasons.

“If you are familiar with this road, every festive season people get stuck. Expanding the road to six lanes would help traffic. We know what our people wanted. The essence of government is to deliver on what the people want and people are happy because we are actually speaking to their needs and that’s what government is about.

“On a daily basis we have more and more people, who want to move out of Umuahia and Aba to bring their businesses back, so we are forward thinking and forward looking. We are already planning for them as they relocate,” he said.

Sympathising with those affected by the construction, the governor said;

“To those who have been inconvenienced by the restrictions of traffic on this road, we want to apologise to them and assure them it wouldn’t be too long before they begin to enjoy free flow of traffic.”

“I understand there are a few more houses that got enumerated after the first compensations have been paid, we are looking at that to ensure that we also pay compensations before we bring down those houses” he added.
