If you could still remember, or if you have been following us, you would have realized that we have been talking about the condition of Ifite/Amansea Road, which connects to the UNIZIK perm-site GATE [the back gate].
There are more pictures below…
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS POST WAS FIRST PUBLISHED IN 2016; AROUND AUGUST. AS AT JANUARY 2018, CERTAIN PARTS OF THIS PARTICULAR ROAD HAVE BEEN RECONSTRUCTED. AND WE ARE HOPEFUL THAT THE REMAINING PARTS OF THE AXIS WILL BE COMPLETED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. FEEL FREE TO VISIT THE SITE TO SEE THE NEW LOOK OF THIS ROAD.
are really suffering since it has been raining, we won’t talk too much
this time around; just use your eyes and see what it looks like, and if
you doubt, bring out time and come down to Ifite: you would really know
that students of Nnamdi Azikiwe University staying at Ifite and Amansea
are going through a lot.
Just relax, don’t be in a hurry, there are still more photos to take a look at; hope you could notice the heap of sand poured on the road? That’s another issue. The major problem with the road is blocked drainage; the water channels are filled up to the brim with sands and dirt. The road was so much neglected that it cannot even be renovated. It needs full construction from the beginning.
LET US TAKE A LOOK AT SOME PHOTOS BEFORE IT WAS RECONSTRUCTED.
JUST IMAGINE WHAT THAT GIRL WENT THROUGH.
DIRTY WATER, HOW HYGIENIC?
Some vehicles do breakdown on the road, thereby causing problem to other road users. Let us talk about the reactions of some persons who have shops along the poor road; out of anger of poor market due to the bad road, they might be preventing students from walking through their pavements hence creating quarrels and fights.
I know by now, Anambra state government is aware of the road and they are planning to work on the road, probably during the dry season; but we shouldn’t stop expressing our feelings; I am a student, I stay at Ifite, and I know what we are going through at that area. Government may promise to construct the road, but we have to keep talking as a reminder to them till the promise has been fulfilled.
I know soon, students would be going for long vacation, but some students offering other programs would still be around; what about aspirants who would come for screening exercises depending on the method UNIZIK would use.
I and my TEAM won’t keep mute and watch ourselves passing through such a terrible condition. If you are at your lodge, planning to go out after a heavy rain, you would be worried. If you are somewhere, and it is raining profusely, it would be better for you to spend your night there than to go back.
But, no matter what, students would be moving about; how I wish girls would be taking selfies on that road under that condition, it would have been a way of using their idiosyncrasies to make others know about the condition of the road.
As I always say, I am not saying that Chief Willie led Administration had not done any work, or that they are not working; all I am saying is that if the good works have not gotten to our own side, we will still pretend as if nothing has been done. Hope that sounds innocuous.
Though it’s still rainy season, something can still be done to change the condition from worse to bad. Maybe opening up the gutters at some strategic points may be of help. It is the government of the people, by the people, and for the people.
Let this be the last time students would encounter this condition; my desire is that by this time next year, it would be a memory to remember. By then, we would be comparing the looks of the road today with that we hope to behold coming dry season.
We are not the only people to be talking about this road, if you are not a student of the institution residing at Ifite, you may have a relative or friend there. So, be part of this clamour for the rehabilitation of the road.
Feel free to drop your views on the old and new state of the road at the moment in the comment section below. This post was first published 2 years ago.
