**Issues 14 Days Ultimatum
The National President General, Uratta Nation Worldwide, Chief Barr. Madukaji Canice Onyekachi, has on behalf of Uratta people, issued 14 days ultimatum to contractors handling the MCC/Umuoba/Toronto/Ekemegbuoha/Umunahu/Uratta road in Owerri North Local Government Area of Imo State.
Madukaji said the road has become a death trap, and a deliberate attempt by the contractors to reduce the population of the people of Uratta.
He said the contractors abandoned the road and made it worse, by creating a 6ft deep ditche on the sides of the road.
He said the condition of the road is frightening and endengering the lives of men, women and children who ply the road on a daily basis.
He said “Our children go to school through the road, our women go to their farms through the road and our men too ,go to their various jobs through the road. And there is a 6ft deep ditch on both sides of the road which is a death trap. We cannot continue to keep quiet anymore.
“The contractors should come out and continue their work, or they tell us whether if they have paid or not for the job.
He described the condition of the road as an embarrassment, a disregard to the people of Uratta and an indication that the contractor has failed to live up to expectation.
The legal Practitioner said Governor Hope Uzodimma is doing his part by constructing and renovating roads in Owerri, but regretted that the contractors are rather frustrating his efforts.
He also revealed that he is unhappy with the condition of roads in Owerri Federal Constituency, decrying the poor state of some other roads in the Constituency.
He said “No.1 Naze junction, is also an eyesore. One will be held up there for over 7 hours in a go slow because of bad road.
