Speaker Ogbonnaya Nwifuru

The Speaker of Ebonyi State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru, has decried the terrible condition of the Nkaliki Hatchery Road.

Nwifuru called on the Ebonyi State Road Maintenance Agency to intervene on the road which is in Abakaliki Local Government Area.

He made the call on Monday during the house plenary while reacting to a motion moved by the Chairman House Committee on Women Affairs and Member Representing Abakaliki North Constituency, Hon. Mrs. Franca C. Okpo, concerning the deplorable nature of the road.

Mrs. Okpo stated in her motion that, “Ebonyi State has become the fastest growing State in Nigeria because of the good road network, but to say that this road is in a bad shape is to be mild. This particular road leads to Ebonyi State House of Assembly complex here, Federal Teaching Hospital Abakaliki, (FETHA II), Abakaliki Local Government Headquarter, Ebonyi State Broadcasting Corporation (EBBC), Ebonyi State Hatchery and other important places in the State.”

In his reaction, Speaker Nwifuru stated: “The issue of the dilapidated nature of hatchery road is very known to all of us but we’re already building so many projects that need attention.

“I think we have a Road Maintenance Agency and we ask them to move to that road and repair areas that need to be repaired. If we continue building new roads, we may have many uncompleted projects. We must be very conscious of taking in new projects. So the Chairman House Committee on Infrastructure and Concession, Hon. Joseph Ununu, should as a matter of urgency inform the Agency of the need to repair that road.”

However, the motion was seconded by Hon. Mazi Oliver Osi, Member representing Ivo constituency and Chairman House Committee on Health.
