Despite N143 billion, Isiukwato Abia erosion control not done

The erosion control in Isiukwato community in Abia state is yet to be done despite the sum of over N143 billion state 2018 and 2019 capital expenditure appropriation.

The road that leads to Abia State University Uturu has become a death trap while many students that use it are at high risk as a result of the danger it portends because of its terrible dilapidated nature.

Worse still the state N143 billion in the two years appropriation is yet to reflect on erosion control.

Abia state is notorious for bad roads and dirty environments. Across the state, many roads are in a terrible shape while dustbin and dirt liter on the streets.

Aba a major commercial city in the state is the worse hit. A visit to the city exposes one to a stench odour and bad road network.

Mr. Chinedu Lucky a 300 level student of the Abia state university, who spoke to WEST AFRICA REPORTERS (WAR) via a telephone conversation on Friday, who claims he uses the road almost on daily basis, disclosed how some persons have lost their lives as a result of the terrible nature of the road caused by erosion.

He has since called on the state government to help fix the road.

A senior lecturer at the University narrated to WAR via a telephone conversation how the community residents together with the university community have severally appealed to the state government to help fix the erosion and make the road accessible.

Mr. Onye Nkuzi whose Twitter handle is @chuksman29 exposed the terrible nature of the road to Udeme.
