The people of Abam Onyerubi Community in Arochukwu LGA of Abia State are appealing to the State Government to come to their aid and fix the long abandoned Abam/Arochukwu road which they said has caused untold hardship to the community

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP from the Local Government area, Engr. Isaac Nkole who made the appeal on behalf of the community, decried the deplorable condition of the road which he said had totally collapsed

According to the PDP Chieftain, the  economic importance of the road cannot be overemphasize, adding that Abam which hosts the famous Abia Rubber Estate is an important agricultural belt of the state that deserves access road for the evacuation of agricultural produce.

Engr. Nkole who also commended Governor Ikpeazu for building the Okobo bridge linking Abam clan with other communities in the area which was abandoned over 100 years ago, noted that the Governor had by the feat, broken a jinx which previous administrations in the state attempted but could not break.

He informed that the bridge had been the major set back to the completion of the Abam - Arochukwu road which is the shortest route to Arochukwu and the link between communities in Abam clan and their sister communities in the LGA.
