Dr. Chukwuemeka Okwuonu, a Peoples Democratic Party chieftain in Abia State, was the running mate to Chief Ikechi Emenike in last year’s gubernatorial election in the state. In this interview with Okechukwu Keshi Ukegbu, he spoke on many national issues
One of the major challenges confronting Nigerian roads is their short life span. How best do you think this problem could be addressed?

If within 15 years the road collapses, the contractor should be called to redo it. Also, Jonathan is to make sure that quality is ensured in whatever road his administration constructs.
