The Abia state Governor, Dr Alex Otti OFR has announced that the reconstruction of Ohanku road, Aba will commence immediately after the Easter celebration even as work has commenced on Obohia road also in Aba.

Governor Otti who broke this cheering news at the Christ The King Catholic Church(CKC) Aba during their 2024 Chrism mass, said that the roads would be done with cement pavement technology to enable them last longer.

“Yesterday, work started at Obohia road. After Easter , work will start at Ohanko road and we are doing something a little different in Ohanku road because we are using cement pavement technology so that it will last longer”

The Governor also noted that he has started fulfilling his campaign promises and assured that by the end of today pensioners in the state would have started receiving their pensions.

“Do i have pensioners here? Some of you have been owed since 2014. At the end of today (28th March, 2024) , all of you will smile. Check your accounts at the end of business today.”

The state Governor said he is not taking the church of God for granted knowing their significant roles in enthroning good governance in the state and congratulated the priests of the church who partook in renewing their vows during the Special mass.

He specially thanked the CKC Church for the level of support it has been giving to him and his government which he noted accounts for why the church was the first he visited a day after he was declared Governor of the state.

“I want to thank the CKC particularly for the support you have given me. Thanks for your support. Thank you for being who you have been, supporting the good governance that we have today” Gov.Otti stated.

In his address, the Catholic Bishop of Aba Diocese ,the most Rev Augustine Echema said that Governor Otti has through his good works in the state and Aba in particular secured his second term in office and described the ongoing reconstruction of Port Harcourt road, Aba as a bench mark.

“You are doing well so far, so good and I bet you, if you continue like this, you don’t need any other campaign for a second tenure. Your works will speak for you. The things you do will campaign for you. I have nothing else to say than to assure you of our efficacious prayers.

“Aba people are saying thank you and like we discussed in the past, Port Harcourt road for me is a benchmark and I sent my secretary to go and see, let us see whether work has really started and work has really started”.

Bishop Echema while also describing Governor Otti as a good man with a docile heart, said that for the first time Abians are proud of their Governor.

“You are a good man with a docile heart. Your first visit which you referred to a few moments ago to CKC Cathedral a day after you won the elections and became our governor touched me personally and humbled me the more.,”We Abians for once are proud of our governor.You have done greatly well and the people are happy. When the righteous people are in authority, the people rejoice. Thank you and God bless you”.
