To ensure strict enforcement of the relocation of spare-parts dealers and mechanics to the Ovom Mechanic Clusters from eleventh January next year, the Abia State Deputy Governor, Engr Ikechukwu Emetu has announced that a taskforce would be constituted to that effect.


Speaking during the official opening of the Ovom Mechanic Clusters for business at Opobo road in Obingwa LGA, Emetu pointed out that the movement of mechanics to the clusters will enable Government harness the taxes and revenue generated to fix the State with necessary infrastructure.

Engr Emetu said the sole aim of the present administration is to rebuild Abia, pointing out that although movement to the new cluster will be hard for them, but assured that in the next few years, they will have cause to appreciate the Governor’s bold step to relocate them to the Ovom Mechanic Clusters.

He stated that the present administration being a Government with a human face will do all it can to make life more meaningful for the people, adding that projects they have executed within six months have given credence to the Government’s seriousness in sanitizing the system.

The Deputy Governor condemned the unpatriotic acts of some people in defacing asphalted roads with corrosive oils and filling up the drainages with waste materials which are capable of damaging the roads.

He assured that the bad road network leading to the mechanic clusters will be rehabilitated as it has already been captured in the next year’s budget.
