A video has gone viral showing the moment residents of Aba, the main commercial city of Abia State were spotted trekking on the abandoned Osisioma flyover project.
The video shared online was in a reaction to the comments made by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu last week Monday, during a call in radio program with Magic FM Aba.
The Governor had when asked during the radio programme to tell Abians the reasons behind the delay in completion of the flyover, told the journalist that people should stop worrying about the completion date.
He said when the project was conceptualised, 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 had 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.”
However, reacting to Ikpeazu’s comment, people were spotted trekking on the flyover, with the man behind the camera heard mimicking the governor that people don’t trek on flyover rather they make use of it with car.
