During a weekend address to enthusiastic residents gathered for a road inspection covering Port Harcourt Road, Old Court Road, Ndoki Road, and Omuma Road, Governor Otti reveals his confidence in Julius Berger’s commitment to completing the crucial Port Harcourt Road by December 2024.

Addressing littering concerns, Governor Otti appeals to residents, saying, “As we complete these roads, we won’t tolerate litter. Bins will be provided, and we’ll collect litter twice a day.”

Regarding Ndoki Road, the Governor promises completion before year-end, highlighting the transformation anticipated before the upcoming rainy season. The project, managed by the Abia State Ministry of Works, is expected to extend to the Good Morning Market, Old Court Road, and connecting streets.
