The indigenous people of Arochukwu, who mainly comprise young people, blocked the convoy of Senate Whip Chief Senator Orji Uzor Kalu on Saturday on the way to Arochukwu and presented him with various foods, including cattle, in appreciation of his road projects in Arochukwu.
IGBERE TV reports that Senator Kalu, who was on his way to attend his party’s program (APC) to receive some decampees from the Popular Democratic Party (PDP) and the Great Progressive Alliance (APGA) in the Congress of All Progressives (APC) made the report halt as a result of indigenous people who learned the news that Senator Kalu’s convoy was passing through their community.
The indigenous people immediately mobilized and lined the road by the thousands, causing Senator Kalu to stop and acknowledge their cheers. Driven by emotion, the indigenous people, who are predominantly farmers, presented food and livestock to Senator Kalu as an expression of gratitude.
The roads being built in the villages are Achara, Okpo, Amafie, Amaetiti, Ebouoru and Amasa, all leading to the community of Ututu. Addressing the joyful youth, Senate Chief Whip assured that the roads will soon be completed.
He told the youth to be grateful to President Muhammadu Buhari, whose generosity to the southeast has made road construction possible.
