Abia State Governor Declares Commitment to Rebuilding Aba, Despite Rains
Abia State Governor, Dr. Alex Otti, has reaffirmed his commitment to rebuilding Aba, the commercial capital of the state, despite challenges posed by the rainy season. The Governor, accompanied by Hungarian delegates, conducted an inspection tour of ongoing road projects in Aba and assured residents that his government would deliver on its promises. He emphasized the determination to improve the lives of Aba residents and announced additional plans, including the installation of solar-powered street lights. Governor Otti expressed gratitude to the people for their cooperation and patience, praising them for their support and hospitality towards the workers.

Abia State Governor, Dr. Alex Otti, has declared that nothing would hinder his avowed decision to rebuild Aba, the commercial capital of the state, including rains, ABN TV reports.

The immediate past government of the PDP had consistently adduced rainy seasons as reason for slow pace of construction works in Aba and other parts of the state.

Governor Otti, who was joined on Friday by the Hungarian Deputy Ambassador to Nigeria, Gabor Kruss, and Economic Counselor of the Hungarian Embassy in Nigeria, Judith Beres, on an inspection tour of some ongoing road projects in Aba, said his government was determined to deliver on his promises during the campaigns, the governor's chief press secretary, Kazie Uko said in a statement.

Speaking to a jubilant crowd at Cemetery Road, one of the several roads being revamped in Aba, the Governor declared that the rains would not be an obstacle to giving residents of Aba the good life they have longed for in the past 24 years, the statement said.

"Whether it is raining or the sun is shining, we will rebuild Aba," Dr. Otti assured the cheering crowd, who left their shops and homes to mill around him and his entourage.

He continued: "I have come to see for myself the condition of this Cemetery Road and we're very happy with the progress of work in spite of the rain. The major challenge we have is that the drainage is blocked and the contractor, even though it's not part of his contract, has started desilting the drainage. If you look towards the left, you will see a lot of rubbish that they have excavated from the drainage.

"We have now divided the job into two phases. The first phase is from number one all the way to the rail line and across the rail is the second phase. So, all the rubbish we have here will be gone by tomorrow and once we have two days of dry weather, they will asphalt and this place will be ready to use.

"There is one more thing we will do, and we have also contracted for it; this place will have solar-powered street lights. Whether it is morning, night or darkness, this place will be lit up."

The Governor thanked the people for cooperating with the contractor and for their show of love and hospitality to the workers, urging for patience while the job lasted.

"Let me thank you once again for your patience. I know that you have been patient all this while and we have just a few more weeks before we deliver this road. We will also deliver other roads in Aba.

"Thank you for the support that you're giving to the workers. The contractor told me that you cook and bring food to the workers. I must thank you for that, God will continue to bless you," Dr. Otti prayed.

The determination of Governor Alex Otti to revamp Aba, the commercial capital of Abia State, is unwavering, regardless of the hindrances posed by the rainy season. Governor Otti, along with the Hungarian Deputy Ambassador and Economic Counselor of the Hungarian Embassy in Nigeria, recently embarked on an inspection tour of ongoing road projects in Aba. The purpose of this tour was to ascertain the progress of the construction works and ensure that the promised improvements are delivered in a timely manner.

Addressing a spirited crowd at Cemetery Road, one of the roads currently undergoing renovations, Governor Otti assured residents that the rains would not hinder the fulfillment of their long-held aspirations for a better life. The Governor's commitment to rebuilding Aba, regardless of weather conditions, was met with enthusiastic applause from the crowd.

In his remarks, Governor Otti expressed his satisfaction with the progress made on Cemetery Road despite the challenges posed by the rain. One major obstacle encountered was the blocked drainage, which impeded the construction work. However, the contractor, demonstrating commitment beyond the terms of the contract, began desilting the drainage. The sight of the excavated debris from the drainage serves as evidence of these efforts.

To ensure efficient project management, the Governor announced that the job would be divided into two phases. The first phase would encompass the stretch from number one all the way to the rail line, while the second phase would extend beyond the rail. The Governor provided assurance that once two consecutive dry days are observed, the workers will proceed to lay asphalt on the road, rendering it ready for use. Furthermore, the Governor revealed plans to install solar-powered street lights along Cemetery Road, ensuring visibility throughout the day and night.

Governor Otti expressed his gratitude to the residents for their cooperation with the contractor and their hospitality towards the workers. He acknowledged the residents' patience throughout the construction process and thanked them for their continued support. The Governor, humbled by the news that the community provides meals for the workers, extended his appreciation, assuring them of divine blessings.

The Governor's commitment to the revitalization of Aba is unwavering. He pledged to deliver on additional road projects, reiterating his determination to fulfill the promises made during his campaign. The inspection tour serves as a testament to Governor Otti's hands-on approach and dedication to the development of Abia State.

As the rainy season continues, Governor Alex Otti remains resolute in his mission to rebuild Aba, the heart of Abia State's commerce. The Governor's steadfastness, in the face of challenging weather conditions, is a testament to his commitment to improving the lives of Aba residents and restoring the city to its former glory. With the support and cooperation of the community, Governor Otti is confident that his administration will deliver on its promises and transform Aba into a thriving commercial hub once again.

As the Governor's inspection tour comes to a close, Aba residents eagerly await the completion of Cemetery Road and other proposed projects. Their patience and support exemplify the spirit and resilience of the Abia State community.
