Below is one of the bridge constructed by Bitter Obi.

I am waiting for OP to call him out instead of getting fixated on Umahi who have more record of visible infrastructure he embarked on.


oga try and have sense. you cannot deflect the real topic here.

The erosion in the SE is eating up the road. Just like Peter Obi's roads in Anambra.

how old are you? are you still a 10 year old boy? Soludo is busy revamping Onitsha and the roads are there for all to see, why bringing in pictures from 15 years ago for lies and propaganda.

Oh so why not apply same metrics to Umahi roads in Ebonyi?


The job is a shoddy job done by Umahi

This is the future state of the so-called coastal road.

My point exactly! Even the link bridge that connects Ozumba to Falomo bridge that hi-tech donated to LASG is still in great shape and state in spite of its heavy usage and traffic on it.

Oga that is not the point, the concrete road in Ebonyi was poorly done and they never factored that high temperatures cause expansion

Peter Obi left office 10 years ago and you are showing a bridge he constructed probably 4 years before 2014? Lol. Lack of good reasoning will always lead people to saynstupid things.

By the way, where has the owner of Sahara Reporters constructed a 1 meter road before? Nowhere because, he CANNOT win an LG charmanship election in Ondo State in a free and fair election.

Here is a man who believes he has the popularity and goodwill to win election, but each election cycle, he scores 14,000 votes. Hmmnnn....is somebody not deceiving him?

The problem with some of you is that you are too insultive, can't you pass your message without insult?
For the sake of information:
Longitudinal crack in concrete pavement is caused by the presence of highly plastic clay( expansive) soils as the subgrade material and changes in the moisture content of these soils due to climatic changes.
Ensure you put yourself in order before quoting me Mr Man.

2. The rigid pavement Umahi constructed was reinforced with Y8 rod which is the primary cause of the thermal expansion due to extreme high temperature.

3. Ebonyi falls under the tropical monsoon region which has alternate high temperature and heavy rainfall, considering the underneath soil is plastic clay, what do you think will happen when the clay absorb water?

oga, all these thing you're saying is jargons. This dude built a road that got damaged within 2 years. Wtf is that. He just embezzled the money

Talking bout concrete, there are so many things you need to get right to have good concrete and going by the anyhowness in Nigeria and the quest for excessive profit... I really doubt the quality of these roads.

A lot of his concrete roads are failing.

David Umahi act as if he knows too much. This same man constructed concrete runway in Abakaliki airport that is not safe for planes to take-off or land on because of poor grip hence commercial airlines avoided the airport (aside that the airport has no economic value). He wasted 40billion.

While I know that concrete roads are good if they are properly constructed, like the one in gbagada, but Umahi will be forming engineer while he cannot deliver quality roads in his state.


I don't trust the quality of the concrete road that Will be delivered on the coastal road project. Umahi likes substandard and shiny things like China and Hitech construction company is not reputable enough to handle such magnitude of project. The only construction company I can trust to deliver is julius berger.

Hi tech did the concrete one in gbagada.

It's crazy for just one company to handle this magnitude of a project.
The government should have broken it up in bits then subcontract portions to the likes of craneburg, j.b, Elalan, c&d.

Help me ask them ooo, is it all the roads that crack
Re: Current State Of Concrete Road Umahi Constructed In Nkalagu, Ebonyi. by Gabbriell: 11:15am On May 07
Erosion control should be carried out along side road construction.

This is clearly a good road ruined by internal erosion (suffusion).

The vegetation on the sides of the road shows the watery situation in the area.

Re: Current State Of Concrete Road Umahi Constructed In Nkalagu, Ebonyi. by kolexy(m): 11:19am On May 07
ekineme:
1.Preliminary investigation from the picture reveals expansion as the major cause of the crack, the heat this year is intense, they was no (Joint) provision made for expansion.
2. The underneath soil is expansive clay, which swells due to the rainy season hence the result you are seeing.

Recommendation:
The concrete should be partitioned leaving room for slight Earth movement ( this will prevent crack as a result of expansion of reinforced concrete as a result of extreme temperature and Earth movement)

Isn't that basic science?

there are loads of asphaltic roads that have been destroyed in weeks of construction.
if you criticize the standard, you have a point but the road itself seems baseless.

Because Umahi warned Obi to stop making unguarded statements .

This same Umahi who since the advent of indigenous rule has constructed more roads in his state than any and all past eastern governors is whom they are now insulting.


Truly , blind pyschophancy by the Obidients need to be studied at all levels of pyschiatry.

Nothing that ordinary coal tar will not solve.


Show us the ones Obi constructed that have not been upgraded.

See the tiny cracks you are using as example when the ones Obi constructed had deep valleys less than a month after commissioning.

It's not about substandard. Concrete has low expansivity ratio. So will easily crack under high temperature or low temperature. For it to last, it must be overlayed with asphalt.
wrong...if it is reinforce concrete (qualify rod not those china rod) nothing will happen

Does it mean that to be an urchnn implies a substandard brain.

Somebody made a clear observation that Umahis work is substandard yet, he is overseeing the construction of a road whose price tag is more tham Dangote's net worth- and an urchins response is to say "what should we do with this news?
