Aggrieved Youths Set to Protest on Tuesday, December 1 over Bad Roads in Etche

Some youths of Etche ethnic nationality have disclosed their plan to stage a protest on Tuesday, next week to express their displeasure over what they described as the terrible state of roads in some locations in the Local Government Area.
City News gathered that the planned peaceful protest/demonstration scheduled for 7am on the said day will take place at Afara, Egwi Mba road within the LGA while the take point is the State School Umuede Mba (Opposite Adventist Church Mba).

The youths who are operating under the umbrella, CONCERNED ETCHE YOUTHS said they have decided to act as their leaders have failed and abandoned them. 

They said it is unfair for the state government to keep erecting flyovers and major road constructions in Port Harcourt while Etche "remains in darkness".

One of the organizers, Fred Fred said the youths are ready to resist every attempt to scuttle the protest. 

Some of the roads they say demand urgent attention and repairs are: Ulakwo to Igbodo, Eleme Junction to Igboh, Egwi to Mba, Etche to Ngor Okpala, Umumbiri to Amaku among others.
