Honorable Ossy Prestige, a member representing Aba North and South in the Federal House of Representatives has engaged in a verbal war with the Abia State government on who secured the reconstruction of the abandoned Ohanku and Ngwa road from the federal government.
Recall that Hon. Prestige toured round the dilapidated Ngwa road and Ohanku, assuring the residents that work will soon commence on the abandoned road.
On Wednesday, 24th May, 2017, AFN reported that work has currently started on the road, while Prestige toured round the road and the residents applauded the politician for allegedly come to their aid for attracting the reconstruction of the road from the federal government.
The road is currently undergoing reconstruction by the Nigeria Ministry of Works, but the Abia State government seems not to be happy, why Prestige tagged his name as who secured the reconstruction of the road by the federal government.
The state government is very angry on why Prestige will claim the glory of drawing the federal government attention to the reconstruction of the road, adding that it was Governor Ikpeazu who should be applauded for the reconstruction of the abandoned road.
Ebere Nwankwo, one of Ikpeazu’s social media aides, faults Prestige’s claim of attracting the reconstruction of the road from the federal government. According to him, Gov Ikpeazu have been “making case” for the road since he came on board. Dr Ikpeazu went to the extent of bringing NDDC DG and Works Minister, Raji Fashola SAN to assess the road.
Nwankwo alleged Hon Prestige is always in ABA doing his BUREAU DE CHANGE business with the money meant for constituency projects.
He asked the following questions; Has Ossy Prestige ever sponsored a bill or raised a motion for a single project at the National Assembly? When and how did he suddenly attract Ohanku Road project or rather reconstruct?
But Hon Prestige response is recorded in a video below:
