Anambra Times | News at your doorstep..

Despite Anambra State Government's naming of a choice location in Awka as Abakiliki Street, the Ebonyi State government has sent a delegation to the Governor, soliciting for reversal of Club Road to Abakiliki Street.

Governor Willie Obiano who received the delegation led by the Secretary to the Government of Ebonyi State, Dr Hygenus Nkwokwu, promised to resolve all raised issues.
The Delegation made an official presentation of a written letter from Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State addressed to Governor Obiano.
Receiving the letter on behalf of Governor Obiano, after a closed door meeting at the Government House, Awka, Deputy Governor, Dr Nkem Okeke who said that Ebonyi and Anambra had been brothers, noted that the social media hype on the issue is uncalled for.
While promising to transmit the letter to the Governor for necessary actions, Deputy Governor Okeke revealed that the closed door meeting was issue based and cordial.
He called on everyone to calm down and go about their normal businesses as issues such as the present one should not be allowed to distract them.
Recall that controversies trailed the renaming of the street to Club road by the Governor due to the nature of activities going on in the area.
State government has since named the area starting from the popular Queen Suite Junction to Parktonia Hotel Junction as Abakiliki Street to show its proactiveness.
Present at the meeting were the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Mr. Primus Odili, Secretary to the State Government, Professor Solo Chukwulobelu, Awka South Transition Committee Chairman, Mr. Leo Nwuba, Ebonyi State Commissioners of Anambra extraction, among others.
