Group Commences Roads Rehabilitation in Yache

Massive rehabilitation of roads have commenced in earnest across communities in Yache, Yala LGA to the Benue Boundary courtesy of a non-governmental organization, Alifokpa Peoples Assembly (APA).

The roads rehabilitation is unprecedented and an indication that the NGO cares for the people of Yache in no small measure.

Speaking on the development, the National Chairman of the group, Pharm. Sir. Ogboga Joseph Ochi (KSM) said Alifokpa Peoples Assembly embarked on the rehabilitation to bring succour to motorists and pedestrians plying the routes.

In his words, “the rehabilitation of the roads in Yache to the Benue Boundary will no doubt greatly relieve people from the economic hardship that the deplorable state of the roads might have been causing over the years, and will also ease free flow of humans and vehicular movements.

Sir Ogboga reemphasized that “Opening up our rural roads, in particular, will boost agriculture and development of micro, small and medium enterprises due to our proximity to Benue State”.

The only viable road connecting Akreha to Yache and Benue State had caused hardship to residents, business owners and road users. So, it became extremely important for the group to embark on the palliative road grading project which re-commenced after the yuletide season break.

The group embarked on the grading of over 9km of Trunk "A" road from the Akhreha Bridge through the Trinity community called Alifokpa (Aji, Endichwi, and Echuji.) as well as communities like Mbou, Osina, and Gabu who depend on this only federal road in Yache to the market to sell their farm produce. The rehabilitation started from the Akhreha Bridge to the Lord Lugard boundary in Cross River and Benue state which was left ungraded for over 30yrs.

The Alifokpa Peoples Assembly's Strategic Development Committee  (APASDEC) are like minded illustrious sons and daughters of Alifokpa who mobilized through her National Chairman to donate and source for funds to grade the only access road  connecting several villages to Benue and other neighboring communities.

It is a registered and non-partisan organization with a mission and vision of impacting positive lives both in human capital and infrastructural development in Alifokpa and other communities.

Among the achievements so far by the assembly within 3years of its existence includes: establishment of the community security outfit,scholarships to sons and daughters of Alifokpa, medical outreaches in collaboration with Moniaya Hospital, Ogoja, establishment of a football club (APA Football Club) amongst others.
