The long-abandoned Port Harcourt Road in Aba will soon be home to bulldozers and other construction equipment, signaling a fresh approach to infrastructure delivery in Abia State.
The Aba-Port Harcourt Road, which has evolved into one of Abians‘ worst dreadful experiences in terms of road infrastructure, was visited by engineers from Julius Berger.
The Julius Berger engineers were there to conduct a visual examination and obtain a personal evaluation of the condition of the road.
It’s thought that Dr. Otti and Richter’s encounter may have led to the visit on Wednesday.

Port Harcourt Road, Aba is a TOTAL DISGRACE!!!
Speaking with one of Alex Otti’s aide tonight, man said and I quote,

The sight of the Julius Berger engineers and their Nigerian colleagues, who traversed a considerable portion of the road that has turned into one huge dump site and smelly swamps, caused an overwhelming feeling of happiness and fresh hope among the locals, traders, commuters, and passersby.
At the Osisioma end of the Enugu-Aba-Port Harcourt Expressway, the engineers briefly spoke with the Abia Governor-elect before moving on to Port Harcourt Road, in the middle of Abia’s commercial hub, to check the 5.9 km of road.
