Uduaghan to inaugurate eight roads in Asaba

24 May 2013, 10:59

Asaba - Delta Government says eight major roads recently completed in Asaba, would be inaugurated on May 29 as part of the 2013 Democracy Day celebrations in the state.

The Commissioner for Works, Mr Funkekeme Solomon, said that the projects, which include DBS Road and Old Anwai Road, would be inaugurated by Gov. Emmanuel Uduaghan.

Solomon announced this on Thursday during an inspection tour of drains and road projects in the state capital.

He said that the essence of the inspection was to ensure that everything about the projects was in place ahead of the celebrations.

He said that the state government was determined to ensure that best quality jobs were executed in the state, and that the ministry would not accept poor quality jobs from any contractor.

The commissioner urged contractors engaged in road projects in the state to ensure that the jobs were delivered on schedule.

He said that the rains might cause delays in the completion targets of the projects, and warned that unnecessary delays and shoddy jobs would not be tolerated from contractors.

He assured people of the state that the government would ensure that projects were executed in accordance with the terms of the contracts.

The commissioner, who expressed delight on the quality of work being executed by the contractors, urged them to step up their work in order to ensure early delivery.

Some of the projects visited by the commissioner were Old Anwai Road, Direct Labour Agency Road, Federal High Court Road, and Okpanam Road.
