The firm said that the project was carried out in line with best practices and under a thorough supervision of reputable agencies.
He said there was no iota of truth in the allegation that the defects sighted on the project resulted from the poor work done.
The firm blamed the defects on the ingress of water, arising from the deflection of 800mm diameter water pipes under the split diamond underpass and not as a result of any shoddy job as being insinuated.
It noted that the appropriate quarters were informed to relocate the water pipes through separate letters to no avail, wondering why the firm would be held responsible for the unfortunate development.
The company, however, said that it had mobilised its human and material resources to the spot and notified the appropriate ministries for measures to forestall future reoccurrence.
It said that it valued the sanctity of human life and would, therefore, not because of pecuniary gain endanger the lives of the people.
The firm assured motorists and other road users that there was no cause for alarm, saying that the repairs would be completed soon.
“It was shocking to be informed about the statement on the split diamond underpass at Geri-Alimi, Ilorin on Thursday, Sept. 26 that the defects noticed on the road of the facility were as a result of shoddy job.
“We need to set record straight that the defects sighted on the exit route (on top) were caused by ingress of water arising from the deflection of 800mm diameter water pipes under the facility, and not shoddy job as being insinuated.
“Similarly, we want to put it on record that while the execution of the project was ongoing, we notified the appropriate quarters through separate letters on the need to relocate the pipe to no avail. We foresaw this problem long ago.
“The execution of the project was ably supervised by reputable agencies, which ensured that the laid down quality and standard were strictly adhered to, while the project lasted.
“While Duravil Engineering Limited had since mobilised its human and material resources to the spot, the appropriate ministries have also been notified about this development and necessary measures are being taken to forestall future reoccurrence,” the firm said.
