Dr. Kelechukwu Okere who is the Traditional Prime Minister of Owerri West LGA, has showered praises on the state Governor Hope Uzodinma over the ongoing construction of Ihiagwa road.
He applauded the governor for hearing the plea for assistance from the Ihiagwa people, who had complained that the governor was marginalising them.
Remember how he had previously voiced his concerns to draw attention to the pain and suffering on the poor road, which has been ignored for more than four years and is impeding the once-thriving community’s economic activities?
Ihiagwa, which played host to two federal institutions – Federal University of Technology and the Police Training School, with a major link road to Port Harcourt Road, has been abandoned for years despite continued appeal from residents and stakeholders.

Okere encouraged the governor to go beyond the laterite surfacing stage, observed during the festive season and instead implement asphalting for road construction. He emphasized that this would contribute to establishing a long-lasting road infrastructure.
Furthermore, he appealed for the reconstruction of the connecting bridge between Ihiagwa and the Port Harcourt Road, emphasizing the importance of enhancing seamless mobility in the area.
Addressing the concerns closer to home, Okere urged the FUTO community to actively address the deteriorating roads on the school campus. He stressed the need for prompt action, highlighting that the condition of the roads is as dire as that of the Ihiagwa Road.
