Ohanku road used to be one of the busiest roads in the old Aba. The road, turned pond, has been long abandoned by the Abia state government prompting a priest to take a drastic prophetical move.
The priest, Revd Acha David Okechukwu, a serving Methodist Priest in charge of umuogele circuit, Diocese of Aba East called on the God of Elijah to intervene on the lingered poor state of Aba roads.
The road used to be one of the busiest roads in Aba, Enyimba city, the economic hub of the Eastern heartland. It connects to many villages, cities and towns including Ngwa road, Iheorji, Mkpumkpu evule, Ama-nwadi-Ala to owerri-Aba, Ugwunagbo, Ukwa east and west, azumiri, Ndoki, Asa, connecting Akwaibom and Rivers states.
This area has produced many prominent men and women including the former minister for labour and productivity during Goodluck Ebele Jonathan administration Chief Emeka Nwogu.
But this all important road has remained impassable under many administrations in Abia State. The above mentioned priest received Divine instructions from God with his priestly robe to walk through this road from one end to another even in the moulky water for divine intervention.
He was crying, ”Where is the Lord God of Elijah”
