SAVE OUR SOULS! AS VERY. REV.FR.(PROF) BONACHRISTUS UMEOGU URGES FG TO FIX ENUGU - ONITSHA EXPRESSWAY




Over a decade now, Enugu-Onitsha dual carriage road passing through Umunya town in Anambra State, has being a night mare as well as dangerous for road users, especially for the National Youth Corp members whose orientation camp is situated at the area.

During an interview in his office, Very Rev. Fr. Prof. Bonachristus Umeogu, urged the federal government led by President Mohammadu Buhari, to own up to their responsibility and supervise it extensively. He stated categorically that lack of supervision on government projects, is an issue that must be taken seriously, especially now that there is economic recession in the country.

The internationally acclaimed Professor and cleric further noted that the lives of Nigerians, such as the National Youth Corp members and others who ply the road frequently are endangered by the comatose state of the federal road.

According to a trader, Aisha Musa, she cried that she has lost several millions of naira on her wares that fell with trailers and lorries while plying the road. The bad road has been the major cause of several road accidents in the past.


Meanwhile, the indigenes of  Umunya, a town that plays host to the State NYSC Camp have pleaded to both state and federal government on the total rehabilitation and construction of the federal road, but their pleas seemed to have fallen on deaf ears; till the road became a death trap for its many users.
