Governor Hope Uzodimma, has been advised by Media Online Practitioners of Imo State, MOPAN, to “as a matter of urgency and serious importance, compel or mobilize contractors handling some of the abandoned road projects in the state, to return to site during this Dry Season”
In a statement signed by Mr. Innocent Onyeukwu and Martin Nwoko, Chairman and Secretary, MOPAN, made available to INNONEWS, the group noted that “the Dry Season provides ample opportunity for these roads to be fixed, to enable Imolites especially those returning for the yuletide, to have a memorable stay at home.
“A state riddled with poor roads network is bound to witness stunted growth in almost sectors of the economy, low investors and crippling businesses.
Part statement read “This is why it is imperative that adequate measures are taken by the State government to address the deplorable, sorry and pitiable state of some of our roads, which has given rise to daily sufferings of the people who ply these bad roads on a daily basis.
“The poor condition of some these roads, particularly within the state capital, such as MCC – Uratta Road, Umuguma – World Bank Road, 2nd phase of Naze – Ihiagwa Road etc and many others across the 27 local government areas of the state is unacceptable.
“Based on the foregoing, we appeal to the State government to faithfully implement it’s 3R mantra by embarking on reconstruction of our roads for the overall benefit of our people.
“We however salute his efforts in easing traffic gridlock in some parts of Owerri metropolis, which has ensured free low of human and vehicular movement.
