Minister Lauds Contractor Over Early Completion, blacklists erring ones

The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Dr. Usani Uguru Usani has lauded the contractor handling the construction of Section one of Atimbo-Akpabuyo road in Cross River State, saying his Ministry will sanction contractors who failed to comply with the rules of engagement.

Dr. Usani, while on inspection of some of the Ministry's Projects in Cross River State on Friday said the Federal Government will not allow the people of Niger Delta region to be short-changed by any contractor, adding that poorly executed jobs would not be condoned by the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs.

"We are impressed by what Zenith Construction Limited has done on section one of Atimbo-Akpabuyo road, other contractors who failed to adhere to contractual agreements will be blacklisted and barred from handing any contract in the Ministry unless they return to site and make amend."

Some of the projects visited included erosion control at O'dwaya street in Calabar South, Sections one and two of Atimbo-Akpabuyo road, in Cross River State.

The Minister lamented that the project in Calabar South was one of the Ministry's Projects awarded under the 2017 Appropriation, noting that for the fact that the road had started deteriorating in less than seven months of execution showed that the job was truly done but poorly executed.

The Company Engineer for ELM Limited, Engr. Frank Bassey has promised his company's commitment to deliver the 2.8 kilometre Section two of Atimbo-Akpabuyo road in good time.

Part of the highlights of the inspection exercise was the Ministerial directive to the appropriate department in the Ministry to start the process of allocating the Ministry's completed Housing project in Bakassi to the vulnerable and displaced people in a bid to meeting their housing need.
