Imo State governor Rochas Okorocha today cited the lack of Federal attention on infrastructures in the Southeastern part of Nigeria. Okorocha, though a “One Nigeria” supporter, incidentally echoed one of the popular rhetorics being cited by pro-Biafran secessionists as reasons for demanding a separatist Biafra Republic for Southeast Nigeria.
According to Okorocha who spoke when members of the Imo State House of Assembly paid him a visit at the Government House, Owerri, state governments have delved into repair of Federal roads after endless waiting for the central government o intervene.
“My government has got no other option than to fix some of such roads in consideration of the plights of the road users.
“In Imo we do not know again which one is federal road or state owned road. We do every road like the Akokwa/Orlu road which we have fixed and dualized. Owerri/Port-Harcourt is so bad.
“There must be a cooperation between Federal Government and Stakeholders on these roads.”
