Governor Otti, who disclosed that the roads were some of the first sets of roads awarded by his administration, noted that for decades, the area was notorious for severe flooding, which transformed the streets into rivers during heavy rains.

He further revealed that the road was redesigned with drainage system and an underground tunnel to channel storm water into the Aba river, which has resolved the long-standing issues of flooding in the area.

“People who are used to this place will tell you their story and how the road has been for decades.

“When you see people dancing, when you see them expressing joy, when you see them rejoicing, it is because of what they have been going through and we thank God that today, the story is different,” Governor Otti remarked.

The Governor outlined several ongoing projects nearing completion to include Cemetery Road, the Dual Carriageway Omuma Road, which he said would be ready within one month; Pepple Road, and various roads in the World Bank, Umungasi, and Umule areas, all expected to be completed by the end of the year.

He assured that work is progressing smoothly on the major Port Harcourt Road, as well as on Ohanku, Ndoki, Ekeakpara and the once impassable Obohia Road. He urged residents to protect the road infrastructure and ensure proper disposal of waste.

“Like I said, what we have come here to do is to fix our place, your own responsibility is to ensure that you protect these assets.
