Abia State To Utilise $200 Million World Bank Facility To Construct Roads And Drainage System

Chief Eziuche Ubani, the Commissioner for Works in Abia, has said that the $200m World Bank facility, being expected by the state government, will be judiciously utilised to construct 506 kilometers of roads and drainage system in different parts of the state.

Ubani said this on Wednesday in Umuahia, while speaking with newsmen on Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu’s second term development agenda on roads.

He said that the state would collaborate with the World Bank and Nigeria Erosion Watershed Management Project (NEWMAP) to execute the two major projects

Ubani also expressed confidence that the present administration would initiate measures during the next four years to permanently address the problem of flooding in Aba.

He said that at the end of the project, “flood water from Umuagbai, Obohia Roads and Ohanku Road will be emptying into the Aba River.''
He said that the projects would help to alleviate the sufferings of the people and boost economic activities in the state, when completed.


  1. Hope it won't still be the same type of Roads and drainage he is constructing in Aba that will be repeated.

  2. Pls world Bank should monitor the projects. The should not give any part of the money to the government directly pls. I have just said my piece.
    Chinwe Uba

  3. 99% into deep pockets.
    1% for construction.
    The world bank already knows this.
    This is the way the western world (bank) prefers it.

  4. Cant we think outside the box for once. Government has have been building roads for ages.
