The Arochukwu community Local Government Area located in Abia North of Abia State on Saturday 28th of November, received the Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu who performed the groundbreaking for the construction of 2km road in the local government.
The road which extends from Arochukwu to Ihechiowa is the first to be officially flagged off out of the 19 road projects currently being constructed by the Abia North Senator.
Speaking at the 2km road sited in Ikwun ward in Arochukwu, Senator Kalu enjoined the indigenes who gathered in their numbers to witness the ground breaking event to be thankful to the President Buhari administration for approving and making available funds for the road projects.
The Chief Whip lamented the failures of past administrations and legislative representatives to execute any single project in the Senatorial zone.
”This is just a road flag off, out of the nineteen road projects spread across our zone. Let me commend the contractors handling the project because they are executing with speed in line with the required quality.
“I also want to thank our President who is making funds available for these road projects.
“I believe you have all seen the difference between the present Government and the past Government. We may not be perfect but we have demonstrated that we have the yearnings of the people at heart.
“I recall just last here during campaign I couldn’t pass through this road and I assured the people that within the first year; that the road will be constructed. I am glad that today my promise has been fulfilled”. He continued
“This is just the first year; you can only imagine the quantum of projects we would have executed and completed before the next three years, Kalu concluded.
Expressing his gratitude on behalf of the indigenes, Chief Joe Ezearo a former Chieftain of the All Progressive’s Grand Alliance (APGA) who decamped to the All Progressives Congress (APC) on the same day, revealed that dividends of democracy of this nature informed a major part of his decision to join the APC.
He thanked Senator Kalu for facilitating the project to the community as well as other eighteen road projects.
