According to him, the effort is part of the fulfilment of his government’s social contract with Ndị Abia.

“By improving these vital roads, we are opening up new vistas of economic opportunities and markets for our farmers and traders. We are also reducing the travel time and cost for our commuters and travellers. It will also bring urban and rural communities closer and our local economy will thrive with increased connectivity.”

Governor Otti further stated that it is not just a government project, rather, it is one for the community.

He urged Abians to embrace the development, support the contractors and continue to fulfil civic duties like tax payments.
