The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Ugochukwu Emezue hinted that Governor T.A. Orji assured the traders that his government will stop at nothing to enhance the status of Aba, in terms of infrastructural development.
The Abia State helmsman stated that majority of road projects in the state are concentrated in Aba.
Chief T.A. Orji stated that he will not look back in ensuring that Aba the commercial nerve centre wears a new look before the end of the dry season.
The Governor also disclosed that Ukwu Mango Area around Ariaria which has remained a problematic spot will soon receive serious attention to enable traffic flow within that axis.

Speaking further the Abia State helmsman told the traders that their request for a good contractor to handle the road projects within the market will be looked into, even as government will nominate its officials to ensure strict adherence to lay down standards.
