CLO urges FG to declare emergency on failed federal road in Anambra


The Civil Liberties Organization (CLO) has urged the Federal Government to declare a state of emergency on failed Nkwelle-Nsugbe-Umueri-Aguleri federal road in Anambra.



“CLO is making passionate and life- saving appeal to President Bola Tinubu; Minister of Work, Chief David Umahi and Federal Emergency Roads Maintenance Agency to declare emergency on Nkwelle-Nsugbe-Umueri-Aguleri federal road,”  Chairman of CLO in Anambra, Mr Vincent Ezekwueme, said.



Ezekwueme said in Enugu on Tuesday that President Tinubu should out of patriotism and magnanimity, send his minister of works to urgently visit the decrepit and deplorable road.



According to him, the road has made life miserable, unbearable and nightmarish for those living around the axis.



“Instead of acting as link, the road has disconnected vast majority of our people due to its failed state.



“Those living or coming in have been cut off completely due to inaccessible and despicable state of the road currently,” he said.



The CLO boss also reiterated its earlier call on Federal Government to expedite action towards construction of Enugu-Ugwuoba-Awka-Onitsha and Nnewi-Uga-Okigwe federal roads.



“These federal roads, when done, will ameliorate devastating and excruciating sufferings and hardships citizens, visitors and road users experience on daily basis,” he said.



He noted that the poor condition of the roads had worsened insecurity in those areas of Anambra and the neighboring South-East state of Enugu.
