By Emeka Odogwu

THE ongoing Akpo-Mbaraoye Achina-Ogwu Nganga-Onne-Agbudu-Ogboji road awarded by former Governor Peter Obi and inherited by Governor Willie Obiano has been cut off by gully erosion.

File for Flood

Flash flood causing gullies on the road necessitated by the abandonment of the road project in Achina Community, Aguata council area of Anambra state led to the cut off which affected over 200 families around St Peter University of the Catholic Diocese of Awka.

The families are finding it difficult to access their ancestral homes and could only park their vehicles at upland and trek kilometres home. The seven point kilometre road cuts across five major agrarian communities.

A community leader and Ichie Ezeagbakwosi ward Achina , Ichie Celestine Ezeanyim disclosed this when he visited the scene of palliative measures being carried out on the road by an illustrious son of the community, Nze Modestus Umenzekwe a.k.a Onwa Achina. He said the 200 families are residents around St Peter University of the Catholic diocese of Awka.

Ichie Ezeanyim commended Nze Umenzekwe for being selfless in carrying out the palliative on the road to enable visitors trooping into the community for the burial of a famous teacher and guardian, Late Nze  Onunkwo, a.k.a Eziokwubundu who died at the age of 100.

However, Governor Willie Obiano has asked the Achina community to be patient as his government would do the road soonest.
