Sept 15, 2014 – Problems Facing Abia State Roads: Many Lies Of Governor Theodore Orji By Chief Chike Nwobosi, Aba

A lot of media wars have been going on between Governor Theodore Orji of Abia State and his predecessor, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu. The two personalities have said different things at the same time and are still going to say more: things they did when we were not with them while they held sway in the government house, Umuahia, when Kalu served as governor; 1999-2007.

As a matter of urgency, I would like to add my voice to some of the controversies especially in the area of development, as the two once pals are deafening our ears with their comments. As we may recall, in January 2012, the incumbent governor of Abia State was everywhere in the media, claiming that he was out to re-write the history of the state, two years after he shifted tent with Kalu.

He told newsmen that his first term was for three years full of litigations against his victory in the 2007 elections. He also told the world that he was held down by Kalu not to perform within this period, a statement he did not put on the margin of an allegation, but that it was a fact.

Many of us joined him in this outcry that Kalu should leave him alone, in order to perform. We joined in the governor’s harangue, because he told the world that he was in complete bondage by his estranged political mentor. Today, many of us have held those positions to be counterfeit-history as we know better.

But what is not history is that four years after the two political friends parted ways, they have entangled themselves in a war we all can see might not end in the near. There are claims by the government of building many of the roads in the state, something that Kalu had severally debunked that his administration put up the roads when he served Abia State as governor.

In most of the comments, Kalu had challenged Orji several times on issues bothering on his claim that his administration worked the many roads that the present administration has been claiming it worked, but the governor has behaved not to be reading this side of Kalu’s media war against him.

Well, as someone who has lived in Aba area of the state, since 1963, born all my children in the state, I stand to say that this is a needless war if the present governor had behaved like one with a heart of Mother Theresa to Kalu. Although, I’m from Anambra State, but as someone who is 86yrs of age, I stand to say the truth, so that the youth would know from where the rain started beating us.

I would say that Gov. T.A Orji actually started hyping his projects in the media within seven months that he left Kalu, something all of us had believed that he came with new vision and compass to arrest some quarters in the state that earnestly needed touch. He told the world that he had started laying a solid foundation for the development of Abia state. But in truth and in spirit, all of that are today stories told to the marines.

One aspect that I am skeptical about in this media war ongoing between the dudes is on the area that the present government has claimed that it has built many roads especially in the Aba area. I am yet to see the roads the governor had incessantly said that he has taken some bold initiatives and actions on, which according to him, would make his name absolutely memorized when the-past of the state is written.

It is almost 8yrs of the present government and many of the basic infrastructures it had boasted that it has layed the foundation for solid development in the state are still lagging. He said that he has built a befitting secretariat to accommodate the civil servants who form the heart of the development of any state; the same civil servants that he chased out from work?

I can attest that the governor has been claiming that his administration built the Ohanku Road, but as an elder who has lived greater part of his life in Aba, it was Kalu who built that road. Any doubting Thomases will agree with me that it was Dr. Chuba Okadigbo (now late) who commissioned the road.

Kalu built many other roads and bridges that space will not allow me to mention here. I can remember he built the Ngwa Road Bridge, Obohia, Ndiuche, Ohanku, Ndoki, Nzeribe, Hospital roads in Aba and built Clifford by Terminus Bridge. He also built the Ehi road, Azikiwe road, Pound road, Asa road to pound… and since he left office, these roads are shadows of theirselves.

However, I have seen some workers from the present government come to Aba to rehabilitate some of the now dilapidated roads, but the roads they said they rehabilitated were left worse than they were. One of project that I have noticed that this government had always hyped was the said multi-million Naira secretariat for the state it awarded the contract, which has lingered and we are heading to 2015, when we would not know if the governor would come from his home town in Ibeku to commission it.

I had hoped that with the zest with which the governor showed us that he was going to work when he estranged from Kalu in 2010 that Abia State would have been lending funds to other states to rebuild theirs, because there would not be any area in the state to be left unattended to.

I want to say that the government should know that Aba needs high concentration of government presence. I am saying this because I know that if Aba works, Abia State automatically works. I would suggest that Gov. T.A Orji had every opportunity to re-write the history he had always claimed that he was in to re-write, but he has acted like a blocked drainage.

There is no doubt that he might have the intension of working in the state, but it seemed that he allowed the intoxicant called power to maroon his ambition. I am surprised that this government has not tackled Aba problems till date in the areas of repairing bad roads and opening up the blocked drainage, which are the main problems I can say that are besetting the entire Abia State.

  1. Abia is definitely better under T.A. Orji than under any past gov. The score card of Ochendo is great. These people are just enemies of Abia state. Maybe Ur eyes are forbidden from seeing the good part of Abia. Come to Umuahia and see for Urself some great transformation under Ochendo. And what are U doing to help build Abia. Critisism and talk is cheap. Do something for Abia and storm portraying our state in bad light.

  2. Fallacy, you did not mention the pedestrian bridge he reconstructed…aba people are the cause of their problem, how would you block the gutter and expected water to cross…Ochendo is working….8

  3. These are real enemies of mygreat state Abia.T.A. Orji is the best gov Abia has had since creation in 1991. Come to Umuahia and see for Urself some great transformation under T.A. Orji. Abia has never seen these huge development before. Abia is our beloved state and we are so proud to be Abians

  4. OUK is a thief,if he built any road,Ochendo wouldn’t have been building several roads with the state’s slim resources,Ochendo is indeed the people’s legacy governor

  5. I was born and brought up in Aba, no doubt aba roads if it raind you cant go out putn on trouses……..as for d ohanku road it was even built when i was still in kg, cus my schl was jst there

    • Orji Uzor Kalu Is a man with negetive mindset his mind is full of evil, a vudolis he Д₪Ð his family wants †Ø turn abian Gods own start in idol worshipper but thank God fOr sending a liberatorT.A Orji †Ø abians. chai who for knw Ђợ̣̣̇̇̇w̶̲̥̅̊ abia could have been now, maybe there may be nothing like abia state……3

  6. you are a typical lair evil elder truth is dries your throat because you are evil. imaging you messing up with 86years . OUK might have bribe u with snuff . I MYSELF IS A WITNESS OF OHAKU ROAD THAT WAS ONE THE GOOD WORK TA DID IN ABA. PEOPLE OF OHAKU ALWAYS ATTEST TO IT. TA SHOWS THAT HIS REPORT ABOUT OUK AND HIS MAMACRACY GOVERNMENT PRESS HIM DOWN ON HIS VISION FOR ABIA IS TRUE FIRST AND FOREMOST TA HAS DONE AND ACHIEVED IN FEW YEARS DISASSOCIATE WITH OUK WHAT OUK CAN NOT ACHIEVE DURING TENURES 8YEARS IN ABIAN. FRANKLY SPEAKING GOD AND TA’S DESTING (AHAMEFULE AS HIS NAME TAGGED) FOUGHT EVIL PLANS AGAINST HIS LEADERSHIP PERIOD. THE FACT IS THIS IN ANNALS OF ABIA STATE POSTERIY WILL NOT FORGET HIM, BASED IS GOVERNANCE IN MANY SECTION OF REFORMING ABIA AND LASTING LEGACIES HE BUILT FOR THE STATE . OUK IN HIS NATURE IS EXTEMELY BEHAVING AS A HUMAN BEING WITH A NEGATIGIVE APPROACH SINCE HE FAILED ABIANS AND CONTINUE FIGHTING OUR AMIABLE GOVERNOR . *****YOU CAN NOT COVER THE FACE OF A DIAMOND GOVERNOR.

  7. Nawaoh, what happened to the N29.32bn Abia state revenue allocation from January 2014 – June 2014, i think is time we hold our leaders to account for how they spent
    our money.

  8. The government of T. A Orji has rehabilitated some of these roads in aba and done new ones. But we know the problem of roads, drainages and waste management in aba is huge and the government has been doing her best in putting things in the right perspective.

  9. There is no state in this country where everything is perfectly in good condition.Abia state’s case is not different.There were governors in Abia state,both military and civilian before Chief T.A Orji,they did their bit and left.Government is a continuum,Chief T.A Orji has done his best and has never claimed he has finished all the infrastructural and general developmental problems of the state.He has set the pace for the real development of the state and should be encouraged.Aba problem did not start with T.A Orji and will probaly not end with his administration.

    It is unfair to say that the governor has not done anything in the state because of two or three bad roads in Aba without taking into consideration what the government had done in other parts of the state.People talk of Aba,Aba,Aba,Aba as if Aba is only what makes up the state.That’s too bad.If eventually the next governor emerges from the Abia South Zone in 2015 as been arranged by the PDP,then let the person turn Aba to the eldorado of Africa if he can.That’s how government and development moves.For me,at the moment,Ochendo remains the best Governor of Abia state.

  10. Hmmm…..all ds r super story. Pls tk a walk to Ikwuano lga dat leads to Akwa ibom u wil indeed see d gud work of Ochendo…… Rubbish!

  11. The writer of this post is a big liar and the likes of him and his cheap sponsors can never do anything to stop T.A Orji reaching that promise land .

  12. OUK and many lies .hmmmmmmmmm thank God we are not in the era of mamacracy again Abia state is now free . just bcos T.A Orji decided to pull out from same bondage he now bcame evil ok naaaaaa go and hug Ebola and die come 2015 T.A for Senate and all dis ur stupid propaganda will never work

  13. The commentator is a failed one just like his sponsors who have ridiculed himself to become as cheap as pure water that instead of him to go and hide and be silence for once his there playing childish politics .

  14. Where are all those pics coming from becos i no there is no such place in abia right now,i believe those pics might have existed 10yrs ago thank God for ochendo who said no abia can not still be in bondage he broke the bondage and librated abia >ouk< u are a failure since u cant change abia all these years u where the governor wht is ur intention now u are a no body pls i suggest u should go and sleep and wake up and think abt ur life

  21. OUK STOP deciving urslf.OCHENDO is rily working hard.make i c dt Governor wey go make Aba london

  22. For it Only a Blind man that will claim ignorance of T.A Orji’s Legacy Projects, you claim to be am elder but you are just a liar and a Mischief maker, Since it is very Obvious that you are Blind, let me tell you what T.A Orji’s Admimistration did, It was T.A orji that built the new High Court complex, new workers Secretariat, Ultra Modern E- Library complex, or is it the new Government House,Diagnostic centers both in Aba and Umuahia, Abia State Specialist Hospitals both in Aba and umuahia, let’s even talk about Human Empowerment, T.A Orji’s Administration has Empowered Over “2000” Abians with a free of charge Empowerment Vehicles, is it the constituency offices at Abia State House of Assembly, good road built round the state, schools to mention just a few, going by these facts one can easily see that both you and kalu are liars #nonsense #

  23. A wise man Once told me that there were two kinds of People on earth: Those who do the work and thise who take the credit, Chief Sir T.A Orji,the executive Governor of Abia State your good works in the state has really shown that you belong to the first group ***Ochendo global Ride On

  24. Hey Mr. Chike how much are you paid to say all this kind of things against a man choosen by God for the state by saying he is not doing anythin or are you blind or foolish. Which administration can you remember in abia state that has done half of what the governor now is doing. no one laid foundation for all what he is doing now you are there siting down in that your house criticizing another person. let me ask you mr. man last administration was it not wheel barrow and shovel that was used to empower you people? was it not mamacracy that you were all under? lets just tell our selves the truth for onces our governor is traying with the limited resources that he is been given. 19

  25. This is actually a sponsored fallacy from the pit of hell. The name Chief Chike Nwobosi does not exist both in Anambra State where he had purportedly alleged to hail from, ditto to Aba, where he claims to reside. Chief T. A. Orji has invested so much time & resources to transform Aba, and the presence of his legacy-driven administration isn’t lagging in either of the Local Governments that make up the State. This wickedness against Governor T. A. Orji must stop!

  26. The Accountant General was Uzor Kalu’s
    cousin, the treasury was relocated to
    Igbere and all sorts of fraud were
    committed. Contracts were awarded but
    paid for and never executed for example,
    the Aba Owerri Road…ouk is a criminal he did nothing in abia yet he goes around criticising d state government….. God will punish u and ur generation 4 taking abia back during or tenure as governor…….. 12

  27. Media make una shun incompetent idot calls himself ouk. He is nothing but publication of falsehood and reality of failure to we Abians. Our able Governor have work and is still working for God’s own state. OCHENDO carry go. …… Iyke manito ogbuji( ikelepal@yahoo.com)

  28. A wise Man once told me that there were
    two Kinds of People on Earth: Those who Do
    the work and those who take the Credit.
    Giving the Change Ochendo has brought in
    Abia State, it is very Obvious that He
    belongs to the first Group. Keep it Up
    Ochendo.. .12

  29. Jesus!!!! who paid u guys? am disappointed..Hw can u guys praise Gov T.A orji 4 ruining Abia state….T.A Orji is a failure n will always remain a failure…Take a trip 2 Aba 4 example,then ur story wil change,that’s exactly wen u’ll knw that T.A Orji is a total failure..no good roads,no drainage system,God!!! okay hw much is abia state university paying as Skol fees guess u guys dnt knw.wat of abia state polytechnic hw much is their fees….For ur information he is owing abia poly for gud 5mnth now….pls my people stop being sentimental,that man is a failure n he is not suppose 2b praised….travel 2 oda state n see 4 urself wat is happening dey example Akwa ibom state,cross river state,etc….come 2 think of it wit revenue generated from ABA alone enough 2 develop all d roads in aba….rememba God is watching u mr T.A ORJI…..
