I write to complement what the author of the above comment published on the page on Tuesday, entitled as above. The writer, one Chidi Onyeyiri, called on the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, to undertake a total reconstruction of the Owerri-Mbaise-Umuahia.
I guess the writer had not been born by the time the road was constructed in 1962 otherwise he wouldn’t say that the age of the road spans over 30 years. The actual age of the road is 50 years, making it one of the oldest federal roads in the country. The reconstruction of the road has been politicised by successive regimes. Now that the same party is in government both in the centre and in Imo State, I enjoin Governor Rochas Okorocha together with the member representing Aboh/Mbaise/Ngor Okpala Federal Constituency at the National Assembly to help us galvanise the minister to re-construct the road to alleviate the sufferings of the masses that use the inter-state road which causes gridlock always.
