The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Imo State Chapter, has said the failed road network in the state is as a result of Chief Rochas Okorocha’s cruelty to Ndimo.
PDP’s position was made public via a press statement signed by the State Publicity Secretary, Mr Damian Oparah.
He said the roads are now filled with potholes because Rochas has intentionally unleashed his wickedness on Imolites.
His words, “The PDP has noted the difficulty experienced by drivers and commuters in the state capital, owing to the poor state of roads in Owerri and by extension the entire state, caused by sub standard and poor construction of these roads by the former Governor, Rochas Okorocha.”
“The party saw it before time and by our series of publications, we condemned in strongest terms, the inferior road constructions and rehabilitation done by Rochas Okorocha administration, but some persons took our candid advice and patriotism as playing opposition to Okorocha’s administration.”
“What made it very unfortunate and cruel, is that in less than six months after Okorocha’s tenure, the roads in Owerri have been washed away and decorated with potholes, making driving in the state capital an unpleasant experience and a strenuous activity.”
“Traveling from Owerri to Mbaise or Owerri to Orlu, is one sure way of having a bad day. Imo citizens and residents have never had it this bad. Okorocha consciously unleashed wickedness of the highest order on Imolites.”
“The Governor recently flagged off N13.5 billion rural road projects. A few weeks later, he flagged off the Naze-Nekede-Ihiagwa-Obinze road, as well as the Control Post-World Bank-Umuguma road, Control Post-Ibari Ogwa road, Douglas-Naze Junction, IMSU Junction to Bishops Court road.”
“Currently, Coduc Construction Company is working at Concorde Boulevard, linking to Port-Harcourt road.”
