“We Igbos always play politics of fighting ourselves just to score some cheap political points while leaving main issues.
“Nobody is talking about the shortcomings of governments or how to push the representatives to sit-up to their responsibilities.
“When I visited 100 foot road Nnewi last weekend, since then, I lost my appetite. It was a gory sight to behold as it has completely sacked residents of the area including houses has been destroyed with properties worth millions lost and damaged.
“What is government doing about the menace or are they folding their hands to watch people continue to run from their homes. What are the members representing the affected Nnewi communities doing to alleviate the sufferings of the people of these area.”
“Shall Governor Willie Obiano continue to watch while Nnewi is being swallowed by massive erosion?” a resident of Nnewi asked. “Shall Rep. Chris Azubogu continue to parade himself as Mr. Project while his hometown is being overtaken by this menace?
“Why are they failing to act fast or do they want to develop Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps in the industrial town (Nnewi)? Let’s make hay while the sun shines.”
The very popular 100 Foot Road in Nnewi, Anambra State, is now a death trap owing to years of festering erosion that hasn’t seem to bother the Anambra State government, led by Willie Obiano.
Major parts of the road, which leads to bank road and Mgbuka Market all in Nnewi have been overtaken by heavy erosion as Obiano as well as Chris Azubogu popularly known as Mr. Project, the member representing Nnewi North, Nnewi South and Ekwusigo Federal Constituencies in the House of Representatives watch without any show of concern. Even as the rainy season is yet to fully set in, the erosion has already chased many households out of their premises, while various nearby buildings, shops, offices and the popular Bank Road remain threatened.
