In order to realise his desired projects without delays, the Governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, has directed the Commissioner for Works, Rt. Hon. Eziuche Ubani, to ensure that all contractors working at various sites across the state are made to redouble their efforts at their respective sites in anticipation of the 2017 rainy season.
Governor Ikpeazu who gave this directive in Umuahia, also stressed that lazy contractors will certainly be sanctioned in the state as a way of making them understand the importance he placed on such projects.
The Governor, who further commended the effort of the contractors working on the five cluster of roads off Ngwa Road Aba for ensuring the completion of the roads before the onset of rains, expressed his happiness that the contractors are on course and urged them not to relent, assuring that his government would ensure that the necessary conducive environment is provided for them to work.
Ikpeazu also sought for the cooperation and understanding of Aba residents, urging them to bear with the government as they experience various discomforts due to the acceleration of various reconstruction works aimed at renewing the Enyimba city and SME capital of Nigeria.
He assured that his administration is committed towards ensuring that they move freely in the city and other towns in the state with ease and minimal discomfort due to bad road.
