Anambra State House of Assembly Committee on Works has charged the construction firm handling Sir Emeka Offor Road-Permanent site NAUTH, Nnewi-Eme Court-Traffic Light road project to go back to site.
The Committee gave the directive when it embarked on an oversight visit at the site as part of its constitutional responsibilities.
House of Assembly Correspondent, Chukwuemeka Modilim reports that on arrival at the seven point three kilometer road, the committee discovered that the firm was not on sight even when the state government had ordered it to return to site and complete all their projects before the rains set in.
Speaking to journalists, the chairman, House Committee on Works, Dr. Timothy Ifedioramma frowned at the situation noting that the deplorable state of the road has adversely affected the socioeconomic activities of the people.
Dr. Ifedioramma assured that the committee will do everything possible to ensure that the project is completed on scheduled.
The committee also inspected the ongoing construction of Anambra State Polytechnic road, Mgbakwu where it observed that the project is at asphalting stage.
It however condemned the inability of the construction firm handling the project to provide the bill of quantity it needed to inspect the project properly and mandated them to make it available when next they visit the site.
The Deputy Chairman of the Committee, Honourable Emma Nwafor also asked construction firms that have not returned to site to do so in the interest of the state.
He commended Governor Willie Obiano for discharging his duties effectively in spite of the challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic.
