Aba Women Protest Bad Roads, Serves 90-Day Ultimatum To Abia State Government

Unic Press UK: Some women in Aba, Abia State, staged a peaceful protest Tuesday over the dilapidated state of infrastructure in the state, especially bad roads in Aba, Abia State.

Aba, one of the most renowned commercial city in the southeastern part of Nigeria, is said to be one of the cities with very poor roads/road network despite a beehive of business activities in the city.

During the protest, a large number of women besieged the streets of Aba, marching with banners/placards on which are inscribed several statements:

“Who cast spell on Aba.”

“The return of Aba women riot (Part 2), 1929 – 2019 (90 years).”

Some of the banners displayed blocked drains, heaps of detritus blocking parts of various roads in the city, and dilapidated roads ridden with potholes, etc.

A spokesperson for the women issued a 90-day ultimatum to the state government to fix the bad roads in Aba and pay workers’ salaries, otherwise the government would face something in the mold of the famed Aba Women riot of 1929, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
