ASABA—DELTA State Commissioner for Works, Chief James Augoye, has reiterated the commitment of the state government to complete palliative works on all ongoing road projects in Asaba and Okpanam areas before the commencement of the African Senior Athletics Championship billed to hold from August 1 to 5 at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in the state capital.
Augoye, while fielding questions from newsmen in Asaba, said palliative work would be carried out on Jesus Saves Road to make it serve as alternative route for motorists who will not be able to pass through some parts of Nnebisi Road during the competition.
Assuring that the ongoing construction of roads and drains would not affect the championship, he said construction work was a continuous exercise that would not stop.
Saying that the approach to achieving result was key, he explained that the contractors handling the various drainage projects were using ring culverts and special cement that would make it unnecessary for the 21-day period to elapse before usage.
