Several attendees interacted with Dr. Ikpeazu and asked him tough questions which he was able to answer and quelch concerns the Abians have, some specifically about the business, education sector and road repair/construction. Attendees were very pleased as he assured them of the progress already made and more to be seen as his time in office continues. Ikpeazu expressed his plans to reconstruct and commission a minimum of 50 roads at Aba with a flyover at Osisioma roundabout before 2019.

In regards to the Aba-Ikot Ekpene Highway, a federal road, Governor Ikpeazu pledged that he will construct a 7.5km alternative access road to connect the Akwa Ibom state end of the highway before the end of the coming dry season.

He stressed that the State will continue ongoing negotiation with the Federal Government on repairing the damaged Aba-Ikot Ekpene highway. So far, he has commissioned 17 of the 28 roads begun by his administration since he took over as Governor of Abia State.
