Governor Owelle Rochas Okorocha has urged lawmakers in the State House of Assembly and political appointees to supervise road projects in their various local government areas to ensure that contractors adhere to the specification of the job.
Speaking to Journalists after a meeting with the lawmakers and political appointees in Government House, the governor explained that such decision was taken considering the fact that it has become increasingly difficult to ensure a central supervision as over 1000 kilometer of roads are being constructed across the state. He stated that lawmakers and political officer holders would be held responsible in the case of failure and poor execution of road projects in their various local government areas.
Gov. Okorocha further explained that the committee of lawmakers and appointees has been mandated to nominate engineers that will equally involve in the supervisory role.
In a related development, the Deputy Governor, Sir Jude Agbaso has assured that over 60% of the roads cleared for construction would be completed before the commencement of the rains. Agbaso, who is also the Commissioner for Works, however assured that the roads and other landmark projects earmarked for execution would be surely completed before the end of the present administration.
