OLOGO QUARTERS CRIES OUT TO ENUGU STATE GOVT. OVER DILAPIDATED ROADS IN THE COMMUNITY
Residents of Ologo Quarters by Police Detective College Agbani Road Enugu are appealing to the Enugu State Government to rehabilitate the roads in the area.
They made their feelings known following menace caused by the heaps of rubble left on the main entrance to the area.
Two of the residents, Mr. Onyebuchi Anorue and Mrs. Angela Nwaneri, told Radio Nigeria that the situation of the road block had become a challenge to residents and businesses in the area.
“It is affecting our business, you know this place is all business area; it is really affecting all of us.
“Drivers fight and quarrel every minute of the day; we are pleading for government to come in.
“Keke jam the other side, one woman had injury; we told labourers to level some places so that the road can be managed.”
A sales girl in the area, Miss Oge Nworie, lamented the condition of the road saying although the heaps of rubble were off loaded there in good fate, they were affecting businesses.
“I want government to help the person that heaped these stones so that we can sell our goods; I suppose to do off load here but I didn’t because of these stones.”
A motorist, Ben Okorie, noted that the person who off loaded the rubble did so to help people using the road as it was in a terrible shape.
“To me, it’s not obstruction any way because this road ordinarily the government should fix it up for us; I feel it’s an individual who came and poured the stones to assist us.”
Road Nigeria observed that some labourers were already breaking the rubble to fill some portions of the road as at the time visited.
