Elders from Egbema, Imo State, yesterday protested over alleged neglect of their community, demanding 50% of the 70 billion naira oil tax money paid by oil companies operating in Imo State from Governor of the State Hope Uzodimma.

The elders, who were furious by the underdevelopment and lack of basic infrastructure, especially the deplorable state of Egbema roads in Imo State, called on the government of Imo State to reconsider its decision as it relates to the use of the 70 billion Naira for the construction of the roads in Imo State.

The National President, Israel O. Onyeoyibo, while reacting to the development while fielding questions from newsmen at the National Union of Journalist NUJ secretariat Owerri, said apart from the government of Sam Mbakwe which did well to give a facelift to the Avu-Egbema road no other government thereafter has given kind of consideration to the roads leading from Owerri-Egbema.

Onyeoyibo who spoke on behalf of the oil rich community, said the Avu-Adapalm-Etekwuru road has been in a deplorable condition and no vehicle plies that road to EGBEMA.
