By Ekemini Ebekpo,


CALABAR- Since the construction of the Calabar-Itu Road in 1999, the road has remained unattended to by the Federal and State Government.

The interest and political corruption of elected office holders takes precedence over the delivery of basic infrastructural improvements to better the lives of Citizens throughout the country.

The result is that each state remains isolated and commerce or economic activity which triggers rapid social and economic development is stultified.

My question is; When will our policy makers learn? What happened to the Federal road contract we heard that was supposedly awarded by the Jonathan administration to correct this situation?

What a shame and disgrace to the Nigerian Government. Misplaced priority and misallocation of limited economic resources is costing Nigeria too much in human suffering.
