The Abia State Government has begun in earnest the promised payment of compensation to owners of structures affected by the proposed six-lane Ossah Road expansion project.

Recall that Gov. Alex Otti, about two months ago, reiterated his plans to expand the Ossah Road, which serves as the major entrance route to Umuahia, the state capital, from the Enugu Port Harcourt Expressway.

The Commissioner for Lands and Survey in Abia State, Mr. Chaka Chukwumerije, who disclosed this Friday during a town hall meeting with the affected property owners and relevant government agencies and stakeholders, said that demolition would commence any time soon.

He disclosed that about 130 structures, including perimeter fences and shops, were affected.

According to the Commissioner, the names of all the affected property owners had been captured and documented, and values for each property had been equally negotiated with the attorneys of the various property owners and government-appointed consultants.

According to the Commissioner, the government is ready to entertain any complaints from anyone omitted during the capture, ensuring that no property owner is skipped.

He, therefore, urged any property owner whose structure had been marked but did not receive payment to approach the Ministry for the needful.
