Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu has said that rather than join issues with his political opponents, he will allow his projects and achievements do the talking for him.
Ikpeazu made this known in a series of tweets via his official Twitter handle on Sunday.
According to him, ‘Those who know the city will certainly applaud the solid work his administration have done using a combination of rigid and flexible pavement technology to deliver roads with good drains on both sides that are seamlessly connected to Aba River.’
‘In our continuing bid to totally reclaim Aba through the delivery of top class road infrastructure and development of SMEs in the state’s commercial nerve centre, we have completed work on Milverton, Ojike and Eziukwu roads. Those who know the city will certainly applaud the solid work we have done within that cluster using a combination of rigid and flexible pavement technology to deliver roads with good drains on both sides that are seamlessly connected to Aba River.’
‘Come today, Monday, 11th January, 2021, we will commission Osusu Road alongside another cluster of roads in Ogbor Hill area: Ebenma St, Jerry Kalu Avenue and Egege/Ama Ohafia Road.’
‘In addition, we will flag off the reconstruction of Omuma Road, Aba, which has remained dilapidated for over 20 years. We’ll also be inspecting progress of work in the Ndiegoro axis of Aba where we are reconstructing Ngwa, Obohia and Ohanku roads in addition to the massive watershed management work we are doing to provide lasting solutions to the perennial flooding of the area.’
‘Because we have the correct understanding of the needs of our people we are focusing on these projects rather than engage those wishing to play politics every second and day of their lives. Let our projects be the counter punch to their political noise for now pending when we will ask them to come forward and show their scorecards to the people who graciously elected us to serve them and do their work instead of working for ourselves.’
‘Our people should expect more values for their unflinching support, and with God on our side, we will continue to deliver project punches that will ultimately knock out the political jobbers wishing to distract us,’ he said.
