Delta House terminates DESOPADEC road contract

By Austin Ogwuda

Asaba—DELTA State House of Assembly Committee on the Delta State Oil Areas Development Commission, DESOPADEC, has ordered the termination of a road contract awarded by the Commission over alleged shoddy performance by the contractor handling the project.

The Committee led by Mr. Monday Igbuya, representing Sapele constituency in the House,  chided the Commission for awarding a road contract of less than one kilometre at an incredible cost of  N114m

The order was handed down when the Committee members went on inspection tour of projects in the state. When the Committee got to Winners Road, Kwale, Ndokwa West Local Government Area of the state, Igbuya was visibly angry when the committee was told that out of the N114 million contract sum, N28million  had been released for the project which was awarded in 2007.
