Uba laments over Anambra roads condition

0

All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in the November 6 election in Anambra State, Senator Andy Uba, has decried the poor state of roads in the state.

He promised to restore the state to the days when it had good roads across its 21 local government areas, if elected.

Uba spoke yesterday at Ojoto and Ogidi, both in Idemili North and South local government areas, during a campaign tour of the areas.

The APC standard bearer noted that the prevalence of poor roads across the state under the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) had cost Anambra huge losses.

He said funds that ought to be channelled to other sectors would be used to rehabilitate roads that do not last beyond one raining season.

Uba lauded the ingenuity of Labour and Employment Minister, who is the APC Leader in the state, for building durable road networks that had lasted beyond 15 years at a time the state’s revenue was meagre.

“For us to get to Ojoto and Ogidi in Idemili South and Idemili North local government areas, we had to traverse several communities – all sitting on good roads built around 15 years ago by Ngige.

“But since we flagged off our local government campaigns in Onitsha North and South Federal Constituency, to Anambra East and West, Oyi and Ayamelum, it has been one hellish movement after another.

“This APGA government has, in fact, frittered away the resources of the state. When they construct low quality roads across the state, they transfer the burden to the taxpayers who have to pay twice, or more, for the same road over a short span of time.

“Presently, there are endless numbers of potholes in the state because of the low quality roads constructed in the state by this APGA administration.

“Immediately my government is inaugurated, by the grace of God, we would face, head-on, the issues of potholes in the state alongside erosions, and subsequently build quality roads that will stand the test of longevity, as the leader of our party, His Excellency, Chris Ngige, did several years ago.”

Also, the APC deputy governorship candidate, Emeka Okafor, who is from Nnobi in Idemili North Local Government Area, urged the voters to stand with him, promising not to let them down.
