“The contract was awarded in 2012 and they were spurs off the Enugu-Onitsha Highway to six different communities, Ebenebe, Agba, Umana-Ndiagu, Nkpodu, Ekeagu and Ugwuoba.
“Because of lack of appropriate budgeting and funding all of these projects could not be completed.
“There were failures in the implementation as we inherited it; there was also the need to provide for erosion control measures and drains.
“That has led to the revision of the existing contract awarded in 2012 from N10.3 billion to 15.734billion.”
Fashola said that it was the revision to enable the contract to be completed that was presented and approved by the council.
