The Minister of State for Power, Works and Housing, Mustapha Baba Shehuri, has directed the contractor handling the rehabilitation on the Ninth Mile-Orokam Road in Enugu State to pay more attention on the pothole-riddled sections of the road.
Shehuri spoke while inspecting federal highways projects in Enugu and Anambra states.
Speaking with the Project Manager of Messrs RCC (Nigeria) Limited, Engr. Harel Vaknin, at the road rehabilitation site, the minister directed that further palliative measures should be provided immediately to ensure that the rough portions of the road were completely rehabilitated to ease the suffering of road users.
While commending the contractor on the pace of work, Shehuri called for more proactive measures before the rainy season set in.
The minister also inspected the ongoing rehabilitation of the outstanding section of the Onitsha-Enugu Expressway in Enugu State, where he assured the contractor that funds would be made available when the necessary processes were completed.
He enjoined the contractor to speed up the work in order to deliver the projects on time.
