U-Report: CD Criticizes S/E Fed. Legislators Over Failure To Fix S/E Roads


A Federal Road In South-East Nigeria


Report By: Campaign For Democracy South-East Region Publicity Arm

The Campaign for Democracy (CD), South-East Region has criticized the South-East legislators in the National Assembly for their failure to impress on the Federal Government to fix its roads within the zone.

 ``Most of them had preformed abysmally low and the zone is no longer comfortable with their non-performing representation,’’ the group said in a statement.

The statement, which was issued to news reporters in Onitsha, Anambra state, was signed by Dede Uzor A. Uzor, Chairman, Campaign for Democracy (CD), South-East Region.

``The South-East region is the worst zone affected by bad roads and gully erosion. Bad roads are affecting business and industrial activities within the zone.”

``Many lives had been lost, while goods worth billions of naira are destroyed.”

``The Federal roads are Onitsha-Awka-Enugu road, Ihiala-Orlu-Mbano road, Enugu-Port Harcourt and Owerri-Aba-Port Harcourt roads,’’ the statement said.

CD also urged the legislators to pursue the case for the building of the 2nd Niger Bridge, adding that ``It is not enough for approval for feasibility study to be given’’.

``Even as feasibility study is approved; there had been no sign to show that a study is going on’’ CD insisted.

The statement further said that CD was giving the lawmakers 30 days to commence action on the roads and the 2nd Niger bridge.
