Without any shame, Abia State governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu on Thursday swam his way through the waterlogged logged roads in Aba and other parts of Abia State to get into Port Harcourt to inaugurate a road constructed by his colleague and governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.
At the moment, the general perception is that the worst roads in Nigeria can be found in Abia State, particularly in Aba, the commercial city of the state, where Ikpeazu has ruled for more than two years now.

Apart from the bad state of roads, Aba is also known as the garbage city of the world. The town is notorious for uncleanness and the governor does not seem to be interested in fixing them.
But he felt good cutting the tape to commission a road project by Wike and he did that shamelessly.
While inaugurating the road, Okezie Ikpeazu described Wike as a brand, an icon, and symbol of everything good and a blessing to Nigeria.
He said using concrete pavements in road construction was with the understanding that it was the best for the topography and designed to last and urged the people to utilise the road with good care.
He did not, however, say why he has continued to look the other way, while the people of Abia State continue to suffer as a result of bad roads.
There is hardly any part of Aba that a motorable road can be found. It is worse in roads leading to and inside the Ariaria market, as well as Port Harcourt road, a part of which has since been abandoned and converted to refuse dumps.
