The Governor was speaking when he received in audience, the Minister and his team who came to inspect road projects of the ministry of Niger Delta Affairs and the NDDC being done in the state.

He regretted that Abia is a major beneficiary of abandoned NDDC projects, noting that some other NDDC roads in the state were in deplorable conditions and needed attention.

According to him, the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs and the NDDC were important to the Niger Delta region and appreciated the Minister for visiting Abia for the road inspection tour, while assuring that Abia will partner him to ensure his goals are achieved.

The Governor, who noted that the major problem that militated against the completion of some of the NDDC road projects was long outstanding debts for jobs executed, appealed to Minister to take a critical look at the issue with a view to getting the projects back on stream.

Earlier in his speech, the minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Engr Abubakar Momoh lauded Governor Otti for the heightened security in Abia at the moment and appealed to him to continue to make peace in the region a top priority for economic prosperity of the people.
