Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State had, during the Abia gubernatorial election debate, attributed the completion of Faulks Road in Aba as parts of his administration’s achievements for the past 3 and half years in Office.
This is even as he said, because of the durability of works on Faulks road, which, according to him was awarded to one of the best contractors in Nigeria (Setraco Construction Company), Ama-Ikonne, a place popularly known as Ugwu-mango (Mango tree) in Aba is now passable.
The governor referred to a long decade narrative which people allegedly said there is a devilish spirit disturbing the portion of the road (Ama-Ikonne), that caused the place to break-down after being repaired by the past administration.
Note: ‘Ama’, in Igbo language means ‘compound’; Ikonne, is a traditional ruler in Aba. He is one of the oldest traditional rulers in Abia State. His full name is; ‘Eze Isaac Ikonne’ (Enyi 1 of Aba)
