Abia-Akwa Ibom Road To Be Completed By NDDC

The Abia-Akwa Ibom road’s completion plans have been made public by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), which has also cautioned contractors against using inferior materials while working on the project.

NDDC Executive Director of Projects Victor Antani told Channels Television during a road inspection on Wednesday that the Commission was only interested in long-term, 20–30 year road projects, not short-term ones.

“We are interested in road projects that will last for between 20-30 years. We are no longer interested in contractors that will come and pour stones on red soil and walk away, and still demand their money,” he said.

Antani urged the contractors in the Niger Delta to improve their game on behalf of Dr. Samuel Ogbuku, Managing Director of the NDDC.

“No more shoddy jobs because we are about to transform the Niger Delta with legacy projects, especially with the roads that link cities, states and local governments together.“

HRH Eze John Okoro, the Traditional Ruler of Arochukwu, expressed his happiness at the road projects while pointing out that the route was previously unusable.

“I don’t know how to thank the management of NDDC. This road was just like a track road, and vehicles didn’t come into this village. But today, we now have a smooth tarred road. On behalf of my community, we say a very big thank you,” he said.

A stakeholder in Arochukwu, Obasi Lawson said the people of the community were happy with the project.

“The Arochukwu people are very happy and have been jubilating, and showing appreciation to the NDDC for the great feat,” he said.
