The Abia House of Assembly has called on federal lawmakers from the
state to draw Federal Government’s attention to the deplorable condition
of federal roads in the state.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the call was part of the
resolutions taken during Tuesday’s plenary session of the house,
presided over by its Speaker, Mr Chinedum Orji.
The house also urged the state government to mandate the Abia State
Road Maintenance Agency (ABROMA) to apply some palliatives on the failed
portions of the roads, pending the reconstruction and rehabilitation of
the roads by the federal government.
The house listed the dilapidated roads in the state to include the
Umuahia-Ikwuano Road, Umuahia-Bende Road and Ohafia-Arochukwu Road,
