Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state has lashed out at individuals asking for an update on a flyover he’s been building for four years.

The governor stated that most of those seeking an update on the Osisioma Flyover in Aba, the commercial city of Abia State don’t have cars, adding that it’s nobody’s business as he decided to start the project on his own.

The Governor while speaking on Monday, 10 January, during a call-in program with Magic FM radio Aba, said the completion date of the project should not be of concern to anyone

The flyover was flagged off on 20th January 2017, and the construction was given to a Chinese company.

The overpass is expected to become the first-ever inter-change flyover in the state when eventually completed.

As of January 10, this year when the interview was conducted with the Governor by the radio station, the project is still under construction.

But when asked during the radio program to tell Abia citizens the reasons behind the delay in completion of the flyover, Ikpeazu said that people should stop worrying about the completion date.

He said when the project was conceptualized, many people never gave him a chance that he would build the flyover, adding that some Abians even went as far as mocking the project by calling it “center table.”

He said, “The question I’m asking is, what’s you people’s concern with the flyover? Am I not the one that started it?

“I started the flyover and I have been funding it with the little money we have and people should not bother about the flyover. Those that even asked about the flyover don’t even have a car.”

Ikpeazu had in recent times come under the hammer of indigenes of the state for failing to complete the flyover project he started over four years ago.

It is expected that the flyover would add value to the city of Aba and help motorists and other road users ply the city’s routes without hitches if completed.
