Imo Residents Cry Out To Ihedioha, See Why
Recently, the residents and commuters in Mgbee, Akokwa and Ogboko, in Imo state have cried out to their present governor, Emeka Ihedioha to come to their rescue.
According to them, the bridge leading straight to Ogboko, Okorocha’s village, has collapsed for the third time after construction.
They criticized the former governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha, over the poor construction of a road leading to the communities and now commuters plying the road have abandoned a section of the road.
The bridge referred to as Mgbee bridge connects Orlu to Ideato-north and south local government areas of the state. Ogboko is in Ideato-south local government area.
A bad portion of the road collapsed recently, and at the moment, motorists now use one lane due to the danger posed by the collapsed portion of the bridge.
“The collapsed portion has been repaired two times, but the bridge caved in shortly after use. It has collapsed again, as the former governor was about leaving office in May,” a resident, Obinna Nwosu said.
According to the residents of these communities, the opening is very dangerous as poor jobs were done on the other two occasions that the bridge was repaired.
They appealed to Governor Ihedioha to come to their aid.
