Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has assured that the on-going Eziukwu Cemetery Road which has been abandoned for close to three decades would be fully recovered under his watch.
Speaking when he paid a working visit to the project at the Eziukwu Road by Ehi Road end of the road, the Governor stated that his resolve to re-write the history of infrastructure in Aba was fully on course.
The Governor noted that the target is to push the project to terminate at the Cemetery Market Aba because of the critical role played by the market in the economy of Aba and Abia State.
