Anambra State Commissioner for Road Construction, Road Furniture and Maintenance, Mr Marcel Ifejiofor has appealed to communities affected by Anam-Mmiata road project to stop obstructing ongoing work on the road project.
The commissioner, while on inspection tour of the project promised to look into their complaints by meeting with stakeholders in Anam and Mmiata to resolve the compensation issue.
“We must not stop the work from progressing. I will be ready to listen to you and work toward securing your compensation, where necessary.’’
The project manager of Kanubeen Construction Company Ltd., Bechara Karan re-assured that they would speed up the project to finish in record time.
However, Mr Karan said that the incessant litigations from the stakeholders had been affecting the work and pleaded with the commissioner to intervene.
Anambra State Government commenced the construction of the road connecting Anambra East and Anambra West which was awarded under previous administration.
The 10km road construction is in the 2nd phase.
The commissioner, who was seen on May 10 inspecting the road confirmed that 5km of earth work had been accomplished and that in total 75 per cent of construction work had been accomplished.
Ifejiofor, then, commended the contractor, Kanubeen for the nice work they were doing.
The Director-General, new Anambra Project Monitoring & Management Office (APMMO), Mr Mike Obuekwe, who was with the commissioner during the inspection said the road would open up the area.
“It will also boost the economies of the agrarian communities in Anambra West LGA.’’ (MOI)
