Declare emergency on failed federal road in Anambra – CLO urges FG


The Civil Liberties Organisation (CLO) has urged the Federal Government to declare a state of emergency in Anambra State over the failed Nkwelle-Nsugbe-Umueri-Aguleri federal road.

Chairman of CLO in Anambra, Mr Vincent Ezekwueme, said this in a statement, describing it as a passionate and life-saving appeal to President Bola Tinubu, Minister of Work, Chief David Umahi and the Federal Emergency Roads Maintenance Agency.

Ezekwueme told reporters on Tuesday that President Tinubu should send his minister of works to the decrepit and awful road out of patriotism and magnanimity.

According to him, the road has made life wretched, painful, and terrifying for individuals who live along the axis.

He stated that poor road conditions had exacerbated insecurity in some areas of Anambra and the adjoining South-East state of Enugu.

“Instead of acting as a link, the road has disconnected the vast majority of our people due to its failed state.

“Those living or coming in have been cut off completely due to the inaccessible and despicable state of the road currently,” he said.
