The lawmaker, who was visibly angry by the absence of workers on site, stated that the conduct of the contractor was unacceptable to the people and noted that Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan meant well for the people of the area by approving the construction of the road to ameliorate their suffering.

“I am very disappointed at the manner the contractor is handling this work. This road is very important to this community, that is why the state governor awarded the contract to ensure that the dividend of democracy gets to the people. The contractor would not be allowed to rubbish the good intention of His Excellency, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan,” he said.
