Ikpeazu Completes Osusu Road, Shares Before and After Pictures
The Governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu has completed Osusu road which has been abandoned for many years.
He made this known on Thursday in a Twitter page recounting how his administration met the once abandoned road which was completely forgotten.
Ikpeazu made it clear that before the commencement of the construction of the road, it was desolate and commercial and private owners of vehicles had to abandon it as there was no way to drive into the road.
He wrote, “The completion of Osusu Road today sent torrents of nostalgic feelings about the plight of indigenes & residents of Osusu through my veins. The road had been derelict & forgotten! As at the last time I checked, way before the commencement of the construction of the road, plantain trees were freely flourishing on the road, commercial keke & okada riders could not ply Osusu Rd. Even waste management in that axis was not feasible because the evacuation trucks could not find thier way through; It got so bad that even EEDC had to cut off Osusu from the National Grid.”
Governor Ikpeazu also stated that businesses were cut short but all of it has been resurrected following the construction of the road.
“Businesses & livelihoods ceased, life virtually came to a standstill to the extent that a whole storey building sold for just N7m compared to the price of similar buildings in surrounding areas! But today, alas, our Osusu Rd has “resurrected”, and it won’t die again, at least, not soon! It might not because true to type in this regime, we were able to do an end to end drainage which we connected to the Oliver Rd drain heading to Aba River, we then did a 10″ concrete pavement with rod before we finally used ashphalt as wearing course! Investors, especially tile merchants who saw the rigorous process have since moved into the road. Congratulations ndi Osusu, another one down, many more to come.”
