The All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Abia state chapter, has alleged that the Federal Ministry of Works has suspended the construction of the Osisioma Ngwa flyover which is under construction by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu administration.
State chairman of APGA, Rev. Augustine Ehiemere in his word stated ; “The Federal Ministry of Works discovered that the Osisioma Ngwa Bridge may not be strong enough to withstand pressure from heavy-duty trucks, hence the decision to suspend works on it.”
May we categorically state here that APGA as an opposition party is not ignorant of the few kilometre roads constructed but washed away by mere rainfall by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu led government in Aba. Can we compared this to the huge amount of money received for that purpose ?
The issues of over 6 years unpaid salaries and pensions had remained unresolved in the State as well. “APC and PDP are the same; APGA will take over the State in 2023. Go to Port Harcourt road, Aba and you will discover that many businesses have collapsed because of bad roads.”
Abia State Commissioner for Information, Barr. Eze Chikamnanyo could not be reached for reaction over the allegation of suspension of work on the Flyover. However, a senior government official who preferred anonymity dismissed reports that work on the bridge was suspended by the federal government.
