Senator Moro laments state of Otukpo road, insecurity in Benue


Abba Moro, the senator representing Benue South Senatorial District in the Senate, has lamented about the poor state of the eight-kilometre stretch of the Otukpo township road.


Moro also expressed concern over the growing insecurity in his senatorial zone, saying it is hindering development in the area.


He spoke in Otukpo after receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award at the ongoing 10th edition of the Idoma International Carnival.


Moro said: “Look at this stretch of road, eight kilometres from the General Hospital to the roundabout, for crying out loud, is it too much of a corporate social responsibility of a company that has benefitted from our sweat? The answer is no.


“I’m sure that if you are from Oju, you will not travel tonight. I’m sure if you are from Ogbadibo, you’ll not travel back tonight. Only a few hours ago, some people from Agatu told me that they had to go home because their road had become dangerous, and so all the challenges were before us.”


He added: “The time has come [when] we’ve to take our destiny into our hands. If the police and the security agencies can’t provide security for us, do we fold our hands and get ourselves killed without asking questions and without reacting?”


Moro enjoined everyone to join hands with the founder of the Idoma International Carnival, Prince Edwin Ochai, to build the Idoma nation.
