The House of Representatives during plenary in Abuja has asked the Inspector-General of Police and Heads of other security agencies to dismantle all road blocks from Lagos and Abuja to the Southeast with immediate effect.

The House made the order after adopting a motion by Rep. Obinna Chidoka (PDP) at the plenary on Thursday, 16th Dec.2021

In the motion, Hon. Obinna Chidoka called for proper collaboration of all security agencies in order to discharge their responsibilities properly and promptly.

The Honourable said that security agencies should avoid resource wastages through unnecessary and multiple checkpoints on the roads, especially those leading to and from the Southeast.

The House asked the IGP to immediately disband all checkpoints at the Onitsha Head Bridge which is creating heavy gridlock. The Lawmaker said this would facilitate free flow of traffic and relieve the pains and hardship of the motorists and other road users traveling to the Southeast during this festive season and beyond.

The House also asked the Federal Road Safety Corps to deploy personnels to clear the incessant grid lock and ensure free flow of traffic between Asaba and Onitsha especially during the Yuletide and beyond.

Roads leading to Southeast and within the region are replete with multiple checkpoints which impede smooth movement of vehicles and businesses.

This had led to outcry and petitions by the people but no response from both the Federal Government and the Police Authorities.Hon. Obinna Chidoka is the Member representing Idemili North and South Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives.
