Inspection

Fashola gave the directive during an inspection visit of the project site at Umunya, Oyi Local Government Area of Anambra on Friday.

Represented by Mr Yemi Oguntominiyi, Director Federal Highway in the Ministry, Fashola said he was impressed with the quality of work, but stressed the need for faster action.

“Though the quality of the work I have seen is okay, with all the machines and workers, let faster action be seen on this project,” he said.

The minister noted that the project was very important to the federal government given the fact that the road connected many states in the South-East and the North.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the project awarded to RCC in Nov. 2018 at the cost of N21.1 billion had 42 months completion period.

Mr Adeyemo Ajani, Controller, Federal Ministry of Works, Power and Housing, Anambra said his officials regularly visited the site, noting that all the challenges raised by the firm had been addressed.

He promised that the project would be delivered in line with stipulated agreement with government.

NAN reports that the minister’s representative visited members of the Oyi Local Government Area Traditional Rulers Council at their Secretariat in Nteje before the road inspection.
