The Chief Whip of the Nigerian Senate, Orji Uzor Kalu, on Friday visited Governor Victor Ikpeazu of Abia State.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, who made this known in a post on his Facebook page, said he was able to secure the assurance of Ikpeazu on the construction of Umuahia -Uzuakoli-Akara-Alayi-Ohafia -Abiriba road by the state government.

He said : “This afternoon, I paid a courtesy visit to my state Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu. We held a fruitful discussion and I used the opportunity to remind him of the Umuahia -Uzuakoli-Akara-Alayi-Ohafia -Abiriba. In his kindness, the Governor has promised to take action on the road. We look forward to a better Abia. ”

PlatinumPost recalls that Kalu- a former Abia State governor, had a few weeks ago urged Ikpeazu to reconstruct Umuahia -Uzuakoli -Akara-Alayi-Igbere- Item-Abiriba-Ohafia road, saying he had attracted N1 billion from the Federal Government budget to the project.

He said : “This is an appeal to my state Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu to consider rebuilding one of the important state roads in Abia : Umuahia -Uzuakoli -Akara-Alayi-Igbere- Item-Abiriba-Ohafia road. Against certain insinuation, the road is a state road and not federal road. Despite not falling into my senatorial role, I had initially appropriated One billion naira as part of the 2021 capital project but the Federal Ministry of Work is yet take action on it .

“When I was Governor, I built the road and maintained it . Ever since I left , there has been no new investment on the road despite being one of the busiest roads in Abia. I am calling and appealing to the state Governor to ease off the stress on that road by taking urgent action on it. “
