Yesterday in the Liberation Train, the Honourable Member representing Ado, Ogbadibo, Okpokwu Federal Constituency,
Dr. Francis Ottah Agbo inspected the ongoing rehabilitation of the 20- Kilometre Igumale- Ulayi- Ijigban Road in Ado LGA!
The road does not just link Igumale, Ulayi, Ijigban ,Izzi, Ezza, Effium people to speed up farming and do business together but is a major gateway to Ebonyi State.
Dr. Ottah Agbo who is also the Chairman of the House Committee on Narcotic Drugs and Spokesman of the Minority Caucus said he was in a hurry to rehabilitate the road before rainy season so as avoid cutting the people from Otukpo and the urban areas generally.
The FeedBack Lawmaker who is also known as the Ozigizaga and the Moving Train of Enone Politics expressed satisfaction with the pace of work!
The Site Engineer, Mr. Chris Oriri who conducted the Talk-Na- Do Lawmaker round the huge construction site said five culverts on the road are bad and “irredeemable.” He said the culverts went bad too soon because those who handled the work didn’t do the culverts according to specifications! He noted that the road also requires wide drains to channel out the water so as to make the road last long before repairs but regretted that all past efforts were without drains. He said, new solid culverts will be constructed and promised to deliver on the entire rehabilitation on or before May ending, God willing.
The Ozigizaga was accompanied on the tour by the Ogbadibo PDP Chairman, Hon. Vincent Amuche , former Ado LGC Chairman, Hon Abel Onazi, former Ado LGC Vice Chairman, Hon Andy Otokpa, the Ado PDP Vice Chairman, Hon. Emmanuel Onminyi Oche, former SSA to the Governor of Benue State, Hon Emmanuel Ogaba, SA, Community Relations to the House of Representatives Member, Hon.
