The Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) on Wednesday directed the contractor handling the 24 kilometres dual carriage way linking Imo and Rivers back to site.
“This is because the 24 kilometres road project links rural communities in the oil-producing areas of Imo and Rivers.
“So, I have charged the contractor to return to site immediately as the NDDC is committed to building sustainable regional infrastructure, especially in the oil producing areas.
“I have also directed the contractor to report to NDDC headquarters, so that we can work out details of what needs to be done to complete the project,”he said.
Akwa also inspected the completed eight kilometres Obinze-Umuokanne Road in Owerri West Local Government Area, connecting several food-producing communities.
Speaking, the contractor handling the project, Mr Denis Odadah, appealed for the payment of outstanding Interim Payment Certificates. (NAN)
