Abia PDP seeks FG’s intervention on Aba roads

From CHUKS ONUOHA, Umuahia

The State Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Abia State, Senator Emma Nwaka, has asked Nigerians to persuade the Federal Government to raise special funds to address the problem of Aba roads. He promised that state Governor, Chief Theodore Orji, will not shirk his responsibility to people of Aba and other parts of the state. Speaking in Umuahia, the Abia State capital, yesterday, while reacting to a newspaper report on state of Aba roads, Nwaka said the state government has done much to develop Aba.

“Structures that block the drainage system in Aba will have to go, for there to be a lasting solution and we ask for the support of the press in this regard,” he said. He commended the governor for using what he described as lean resources of to accelerate the development of Abia State, adding that before the current administration took office, the only iconic landmark in the state was the Abia Tower. “Today, the story is different, as the state can now boast of many landmarks, which include the imposing civil servants secretariat, a conference centre of international standard and befitting high court buildings, among others .

The success recorded by our government in the area of security, which has attracted international approbation, is not without huge economic dividends,” he said. He said that as a result of the government’s achievements, companies, like Guinness and Nigerian Breweries are in Abia doing business. The PDP chairman faulted a recent newspaper report on Aba roads, saying that the state government was not contacted to say its side of the story.

“You will notice that no effort was made to hear from any government official about what the government is doing or intends to do about the state of some of the roads in the city. The whole essence of the report, from all indications, is to demonise the government and portray it as uncaring,” Nwaka said.

    when i was an undergraduation in one of our national university ,i propounded a theory that says noting last forever in other words ,change is always constant,so no matter what is happening right now in aba, one thing is sure it wil not last forever. never!!! Wat ever that start some hw wil also stop somewhere certainly

    Mr.Chairman,you are very stupid and heartless to say that no effort was made to contact the state government on the issue of bad roads in Aba,what can your administration boast of?come to Aba and witness things by yourself and see the hell your people are going through due to bad roads in the once beloved Enyimba City.GOD HELP US HERE

    nwaka you are a disgrace to humanity!!!!!

      Do not listen to Nwaka. He has been settled by the governor agaisnt the people of Aba. He need to go back to night school to understand the subject matter. While the issue is Aba, Nwaka is talking about the fake acheivement of his master in Abia State. What a pity?
      The solution is for the people in Aba to take their destind to their hands by embarking on months mass peaceful protection. The sympathetic World will join them and chase away the governor and Nwaka to jail. No amount of protection from Abuja and prayer contractor warriors will save the them.
      I wonder if their church pastors where they pay one tenth of Abia State money they claimed to be their income do not warm them. When God’s anger comes, such pastors will not be spared. They should not forget the story of Eliah and his sons.

    • Joel Nwosu November 4, 2012 at 2:25 am

      I cross my heart! Nwaka, if I see you in Aba consider your self dead. You are nothing but a liar, a deceit like you, very soon you pants will be on fire.

  6. kay November 3, 2012 at 6:14 am

    The problem with people in Abia Govt is that the have refused to see anything wrong with TA Orji. This Administration is a disaster. Ochendo is the most insensitive leader I have ever heard of. Aba roads are too bad and this govt is not and will not do anything about it. All they do is to collect faceless and unnecessary revenues. Aba can qualify for the highest slum in human history. There is no govt presence at all. Posterity will judge TA Orji and his people. He is a disappointment. A govt that boasts of court building. How big is this court build? A small normal duplex individuals construct in their villages. Ochendo, leave those sycophants and work. Look at Mbakwe today. He is dead but everyone talks good of him.

    • Cris November 3, 2012 at 8:03 am

      Since Abia stave govt have forgotten Aba, they should alert the fed govt to come and rescue Aba. T A Orji’s achievements as enumerated by PDP chairman is laughable.

    • Enwereji November 3, 2012 at 4:19 pm

      Just wanna tell you how i feel about your eloquence, keep it up! In as much as i know Abia must be better if not now certainly latter.

    TA and Nwaka is a shame to humanity.When you die you will be buried with your face down for the numerous avoidable deaths you have caused the inhabitants of Aba.Even Orji Kalu built some Roads.Can TA Orji name one single Road his administration has built.The answer is non.The man is simply mean,heartless,wicked and foolish.When he dies we pack all the money he has stolen to his grave.FOOLISH MORTAL MAN THAT WILL SOON DIE.He deserves pity.

      A thousand kilometres starts 4rm a mile. I dnt see the reason why we will be hopeless nd vissionless, Why cant we 4 once trust our leaders nd believe dat 1 day all dia promises wil come 2 establishment by d grace of God. Dat a community is growing depends on d unity between d leader nd d follower. Pls lets stop saying evil about our leader cos even if dey wanted 2 do dat dey wil begin 2 tink otherwise bcos wot we said against dem. Unity nd loyalty is d best tin we can 2 ourselves 4 d growth nd development of our state. Our leader’s make sure u lead wel cos wot so ever u do is being recorded 4 u in heaven. God bless u all nd give stenght 2 do d wok he gave u 2 do.

  11. sunny November 3, 2012 at 8:46 am

    t.a orji is a disgrace of the century.

  12. mitchel November 3, 2012 at 9:07 am

    orji cannot prove to the world that he is a leader. He is busy buy all the houses at azikiwe st in umuahia. I suggest that aba people should give him some plots at the areas we have bad roads. Then all the road will be built within 24 hours. He has no investment in aba thats why

  13. O`jays November 3, 2012 at 9:41 am

    This Nwaka, does he see at all ? How long has he been to Aba ? This fellow is not only a disgrace to humanity but a cursed one. He said ‘the governor is using lean resources to develop Abia’. Where is the development in Abia state ? As an oil producing state, where does T A Orji the non performing governor,& his cohorts channel all the revenue accrued to the state ? How does T.A. Orji feel sitting in a meeting discussing with people like G. Akpabio, R.Okorocha, Peter Obi, R C Amaechi, Adams Oshioms,Fashola etc. ‘Am sure he has sold his conscience & shame. “He who pays evil for good, evil will not depart from his house”. So Emma Nwaka, T.A. Orji & co should be ready to account for what they did in Abia.

  14. Man ndem November 3, 2012 at 10:20 am

    Shame..shame…..shame on you cycophant nwaka….for the governor…we all know he is dead and waiting for burial.

  15. Sunnykov November 3, 2012 at 10:35 am

    What achievements is this man talking about? Aba roads are likened 2 death traps, roads like Akiziwe road, port-harcourt road, faulks road, etc. T a orji is the worst governor Nigeria has ever seen.

  16. Oprinso November 3, 2012 at 11:01 am

    Useles abia govt.the worst in the world’s history.

  17. N.d November 3, 2012 at 11:57 am

  20. the truth November 3, 2012 at 12:41 pm

    Its a shame that Emmanuel nwaka has brought himself so down because of politics to that extent. If Orji cannot work Aba where the state is getting most of its revenue which by right deserves more attention than other area, then Abia is finished. With all the swamps I see as Road in this picture, I wonder how the residents operate there. Abians should pls run away from anything ORJI….. be warned

  21. Wiseone November 3, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    The senator Emma Nwaka we know is a failure! What do you expect to hear from a drowning and confused govt. Hear this man; that the people should persuade the FG. to raise a special fund and give them to share as usual in the name of rehabilitating road. Again that the sleeping Abia govt has to be awaken and be informed before any publication reports is to be made in order to influence on the reports. Forgeting that these journals has the right to publicize any anomalies that are obvious in any govt or institutions as delegated to it through the FoI bill. Day dreamers. Emma, for your best interest, better advice your boss to wake up and take on the numerous tasks unattended to, and stop giving shaky excuses in defence to a govt that offers you a peanut from the huge allocations it collects from the FG and internally generated revenue from the state which if put together, runs into hundreds of billions monthly. All these monies instead of using it to develop Abia, goes to buying of houses, estates, ships and other frivolities. Hereafter you and your cohort will be the one disclosing what this TAO did wrong when his term expires. It happened with OUK. You were showering praises on him when he was there and is leveling all sorts of accusations on him now that he is out of office. We are watching all of you.

  22. Dumas K November 3, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    Mr. Nwaka could you please concentrate on being the Chairman of your party than the commissioner of Information. It is evident that you do not know what is happening in your state or may be you are pretending. Your Gov. is the worse thing that had happened to Abia state. Nwaka, take a visit to see the much talk about and celebrated Ugwu Mangoe whether you will not hide your face in shame.

  23. Meche November 3, 2012 at 2:24 pm

    Nwaka,God almighty sees us all and if what is happenin in Abia is good to him,so be it but if otherwise,it will only take a while before u start reaping ur sow.Check those in govt before and check now,it’s only 4 a while since ur conscience is dead n buried.

  24. Armsterdam guy November 3, 2012 at 2:51 pm

    This is very very disgraceful, T.orji and elechi are the worst govs in Nigeria, the two visionless govs, though i am not from abia, atleast S. chime is trying more than these thieves, imagine aba, a commercial hub is looking so terrible where all the monies are being generated, and also supose to be given serious attention, kudos to chime, obi and rochas, u people are doing the igbo race proud.

  25. Odenigbo November 3, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    The worst thing that has ever happen to Nigeria is the administration of T A Orji. Nwaka and his fellow cyconphants have been bemoaned. You have goofed. Nwaka has lost all sense of civilty and is playing ancient politics. Nwaka, I can not imagine how you are convicned that people of 21st century will believe your craps and take you serious? God will surely judge you and your living-dead governor for punishing Aba, Abia and indeed Nigerians. You have archived your devilish pupose of causing all this harvoc for the only industrial zone in Igbo land. Your conciencce will surely condem you before God’s final judgement and punishment on you.

  26. kingsley November 3, 2012 at 3:15 pm

    man, is only those who dont know God talk as u talk idiot, u want to cover T.A oji? am very sure u dnt live in aba. i hope u visit calabar n akwaibom? 4 d fact that u ppl have decided to leave aba ppl to be suffering, none of u will die witout bitter long of suffering no mater where u ppl belong. together with any of ur children who did not know God.

  27. chidozie November 3, 2012 at 3:16 pm

    abia government has become a joke in this country with senseless leadership which begets no ideas for the developement of the state, if not for the enterprenurial nature of abia people that state would be buried by now

  28. Ihegwu Eke November 3, 2012 at 5:12 pm

    Nwaka haaaaaaaaaaa. Ur super praise of T.A.Orji on Aba roads is a big shame to d pdp, Aba residents even a five yr child knows u are a big lier, Instead of telling ur pay master to perform u are praising him for doing small small projects, common individual can do, posterity will judge u and TA

  29. sampson monday November 3, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    i have nothing to say because i dont lik joining issues with senseless people lik nwaka and T A orji!

  30. chinedu odimegwu November 3, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    This man is sick for about 8yrs of this adiministration ur this man is talking abt secretariat as an achievement too sad

  31. Chuba Nwakonobi November 3, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    Enugu State government did not require any federal assistance to make that state motorable when Chimaroke (an American trained doctor) left the state in ruins. Enugu was just looking like Aba, but all that was over within one year of effective governance. I dont know how T.A. Orji sleeps at night. The heart of man is desperately wicked above all things. Chief Sam Mbakwe (Onye oga adiri mma) put smiles on all the faces of the 5 senatorial zones that make up the old Imo state with limited resources that cannot be compared to what these people are getting today and in the process immortalized his name in letters of Gold. What can I remember T.A. orji for? NOTHING! If you really have a conscience, do something before it becomes too late. Have you asked yourself what will happen when you become a private citizen again after government? Remember “he was crucified, dead and buried during the reign of pontius pilate”. That man pontius pilate will forever be remembered for evil and you dont want that kind of legacy because that is where you are ultimately headed with your insensitvity.
    May god help you!

  32. Walter November 3, 2012 at 6:38 pm

    It is really unfortunate that some highly place persons fail to speak the truth on metters affecting the common man just because of their personal interest, How can PDP chairman in the state ,commends the TA Orji led Administration on Infrastructural Development in the State ? The greater resources of Abia State is being used to pay & maintain Sycophant why ? while the people working are left with out nothing.PDP Government led by TA Orji has fail the people of Abia State ,Sen.Emma Nawka ,You should be a big Fool by asking Nigerians to persuade the FG to take the responsibility of state , what happen to the allocation alloted to the state ?.God is watching you all as you enrich yourself & family with ill gotten wealth while the owners are crying & left with nothing.I expect you to use you personality & position to Persuade the Governor to act but you acted otherwish due to personal gains.Judgement day is coming very closer , the people re now wise

  33. okonjo November 3, 2012 at 9:15 pm

  36. Jovita November 3, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    Pls the truth shld be told. Abia state is the worst state in the Southeast as far as infrastructure is concerned. It worries me bitterly,the governor shld sit up pls.

  37. mba November 3, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    This Yeye Nwaka was saying that the newspaper did not hear they own side of the story, what is there to be heard? The whole of Aba roads is collasped. Just take a look at uratta road in Aba, they started and abandoned half way and numerous others. Shame to T Orji, only God will repay him back. The curses Orji is receiving from people of Aba has surpassed that of Late Gen Abacha. I wonder the kind of celebration Abians will do if news of Orji death is annouced.

  38. samuel princewill November 3, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    It is a pitiable condition for we Abians, but it is only God that will save us from this quagmire.

  39. humphrey November 3, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    Neither Fed. Govt. nor Abia people looted the Abia money that came to Abia. What gurantees the proper use of the fund if another donnor volunteers again? However first tell your people what happened to their money in the last 12 to 16 years. Think they will like to know.

  40. peter November 3, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    T.A orji God will surely repay you….for cause avoic in Aba road, drive’s are now contributing money to know if they can repaire, some road’s, for all their taxes no road, busines are not moveing well due to bad road..our bad prayer for you must surely happend

  41. obiakor November 3, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    Mr man, I thought that Governor T A Orji siad he has done all that need to done in Abia State. Are u calling the federal Government to come and clear drianages in Aba? this the work of State and Local Government officials. If the State Government can not clear common drainage, wht then can they do? Channel your request to the Stae government to do wht they are supose to do. Stop fooling your self and the people of Abia.

  42. Chikezie U. November 3, 2012 at 11:34 pm

    Check out the Abia PDP chairman, sen Emma Nwakama: “T.A.Orji is working; he built secretariat,court etc and that the govt was not called to tell their own side of the story.” NO, PEOPLE STOP LAUGHING, it is just the type of people at the helm of affairs in Abia; MORONS! The consequences: NO DEVELOPMENT AND PROGRESS in all sectors (human and infrastructure) of the state. Eg, five months salaries owed workers as at today, very bad primary and secondary school buildings/classrooms, bad roads, lack of medical heaps of dirt here and there, taking over of running of things by touts etc.

  43. emmanuel November 4, 2012 at 12:23 am

    whether he work the roads in aba or not whether he build whatever they may called it what knw is that all this things are politice

  44. omoibile November 4, 2012 at 12:44 am

    Aba is the main centre of commerce in Abia and the profits are made by Abians, how come it is now Federal Government to fix your roads for you?

    Surely about 100 businesses can levy themselves and fix Aba roads? But who voted for this government in the first place? In Yorubaland we drove PDP out because it is the Party of Death to the People.

  45. Chukwudi November 4, 2012 at 1:21 am

    Imagine that idiot called Nwaka. As you keep lying,ur children wil call u a big liar. very foolish man!!! Anu ofia!!!!

  46. Chukwudi November 4, 2012 at 1:23 am

    Mr Nwaka or whatever,please stop deceiving Nigerians and face realized. if you cannot face reality,better go and hug transformer. Stupid senator!!

  47. De caprio November 4, 2012 at 4:12 am

    D truth is bitter,TA orji,go and fix Aba roads.what shall it profit u if u loot d whole state fund and end up in d book of abians as demon dat ever ruled Abia,a word is enough for d wise.

  48. Innocent Maduka Okoro November 4, 2012 at 5:14 am

    Nwaka shut up your mouth because you don’t know what you are saying,you are now telling the world that all the IGR generated from Aba plus the govt own is not enough to fix Aba.I don’t blame you but be prepared to accompany your useless governor to jail after his tenure.Abia never had it bad like this dduring the military or OUK era even Umuahia Town nothing is happening.if to rebuild Aba will cost much due to decay of infrastructure what is happening in Umuahia? What local govt will do in the west and keep quiet is what your absurd governor will do in Abia then BCA will not allow ear to hear word.if Orji likes let him name the whole state after his family but he should know that judgement day is coming and even very close to him.

  49. Raja chinedu November 4, 2012 at 5:35 am

    T,A,Oji has made history, as wost Governor in d world

  50. evans November 4, 2012 at 8:32 am

    We forgot easily as people thats our major problem. Before that man was imposed to the people of Abia State, we are already awashed with photo evidence of him taking oath at Okija shrine. A man who is coming to rule the God,s own state making pact with the devil, Tell in all honesty, how will that man succeed as a governor?
    There achievement was that Nigerian brewery Guinness build there plant in Abia state and they build high court, and another complex. Is this not laughable.
    If Nigeria brewery cannot build there plant in Abia, were else will they build it ? In Zamfara? The only solution is to plant bomb in that ye ye man,s car and blow the idiot thy kingdom come. Waiting for 2015 is too long and more damages will be done.

  55. Obinna Nwala November 4, 2012 at 11:51 am

    Nwaka and fellow PDP thievies in Abia are looking for federal money to share, Abia own has finished

  56. Ihegwu Eke November 4, 2012 at 11:53 am

    If only T.A will read all these negative comments about him and his govt, i would have be happy, but he can not, God has since taken away his conscience, he is d pharaoh of Abia, upon all d infrastructural levy he using police and york tenants to collect by force. U can not see any good road in Aba, His own levy is more 5x to what Kalu collected ,Uratta rd he started @ his first yr in office is still an abandon project, dis is just 4km road, so u can see he is still in bondage of his own making

  57. Ohanze isiahia November 4, 2012 at 11:59 am

    Nwaka, so after privately telling your aids that the governor is not doing well ua now publicly praising him.chei…shame unto u.for ua information ua oga has failed and no amount of rigging will keep ua papa deceive pikin (pdp)in power come next election.

  58. ezeigbo November 4, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    Nwaka or watever u call ur stinking self,just shut that crappy mouth of yours !Ain’t u ashamed of mentioning building a mushroom-size courtroom as a major project!How would dat benefit the Abians!Just mention one remarkable infrastructural project embarked or completed by the living dead governor!How I wish the senate passed the bill of remove state governors’ immunity while in office,he’ld have been cooling off in jail!If everyone’s saying the same thing ,then there is something wrong!I’m so proud of y’all dat commented here!As soon as his terrible tenure elapses,we all need to ensure dat he doesn’t rig his like into dat seat!Enough is enough jor!

    Senator Nwaka u ar a Bastard and an enemy of the state…FOOL like u…

  60. sir mysticoh November 4, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    I want to use this space to draw the attention of Mr. President,Good Luck Jonathan,his crew and other well-meaning Nigerians to a very challenging and mocking comment made by President John Dramani Mahama of Ghana.
    I have tried in vain to suppress it but to no avail.
    He said that he and his administration are building an oil refinery,whereby other countries including Nigeria will be coming to refine their crude oil in Ghana.What an insult!What a rediculous statement!What a shame!
    Are the Nigerian governments going to allow this to happen?This is a serious issue and something serious has to be done to avert it-our refineries must be functional at all times,at the least of it all.
