The Committee Chairman, Mr  Usaini Amurudu,stated this on Thursday when he led members on oversight visit to some ongoing road projects in the central zone of the state.

“We will liaise with the relevant security agencies so that they will deploy more security personnel to be on site with the contractors.

“This will give the workers confidence to concentrate on their work and deliver within the specified time,” Amurudu said.

Amurudu, who is representing Bokkos State Constituency at the assembly, expressed satisfaction with the quality of work at the projects visited.

He, however, called on the contractors to hasten and complete the work on schedule without compromising the quality.

He lauded Gov. Simon Lalong for releasing funds for execution of the projects including the ones he inherited from his predecessor.

“This is why you can see the ongoing construction of these roads with the bridges to connect the rural communities.

“I can assure you that the governor is ready to finish up with the 22 road projects he has started as well as those he inherited from the last administration,” he said.
