The group decried the worsening condition of South East roads particularly federal roads in the zone.

Ohanaeze Youth Council ( OYC) in a press statement signed by its National President, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, said:

“Ohanaeze Youths call on President Buhari to intervene and help rebuild South-East Federal roads, especially in Aba.

“We hasten to remind Mr. President that he still holds the highest chieftaincy title of Aba, Ogbu Agu I of Aba.

“Mr. President, as of today, we cannot easily access the road to the palace of HRM Eze Isaac Ikonne, where chieftaincy was conferred on you.

“Federal roads in the South-East, and Abia State in particular, are begging for Federal Government’s attention.”

The Council tasked Governor Ikpeazu to put internal measures in place to cushion the effect of the biting economic recession in the state.
