Abakiliki Street Renaming: Anambra Replies Ebonyi


Anambra State Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment Mr. C Don Adinuba has said that the Ebonyi State House of Assembly has no jurisdiction to give ultimatum to another state not under it.

The Commissioner was reacting to the seven day ultimatum issued to the Anambra State Government to rescind her decision over the renaming of Abakaliki Street in Awka, the state capital or have all the Ebonyi institutions, streets and monuments named after Anambra indigenes scrapped.

The Anambra Information Commissioner said the House was acting without facts, adding that Anambra State does not intend to enter into a press war with any of her sister states as it is not necessary noting that the two states are brothers and sisters.

Commissioner Adinuba, however, explained that the Governor of Anambra State Chief Willie Obiano removed the name of Ebonyi from a place that is inhabited by all manner of people like commercial sex workers and people doing menial jobs, noting that the former Abakiliki Street was a dungeon, a slum with shanties and illegal structures.

He stated that the Governor moved the street to a more decent and strategic, longer street, that stretched from the Parktonia Hotels located along the Enugu Onitsha Expressway and linked the old Abakiliki Street now Club Street.
