Otti names 1st 6-lane Road In Abia After Ironsi


From Our Correspondent

Governor Alex Otti of Abia State has named the first ever six-lane road leading from the Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway tower junction into Umuahia capital city, after a former Head of State, General Thomas Aguiyi Ironsi.

The 3.5 kilometer road was inaugurated by a former Chief of Defense Staff, Commodore Ebitu Ukiwe (rtd), amidst pomp and pageantry.

The signature project which was initiated by Governor Otti in September 2023, is one of the series of his landmark projects in the last 12 months.

Inauguration and flag-off of other historic projects including the central bus terminal behind Okpara Square, are ongoing as part of activities marking his one year in office.

Abians from different political divides trooped out en-masse to witness the colourful ceremony, which attracted the presence of the emir of Azare in Nassarawa State.
