Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State has set a trap for contractors in the state by advising people from any community where his administration undertaking projects to bring to his notice any shoddy work by any contractor. He vowed to take decisive action against any such contractor, including cancellation of the contract.

The governor gave the charge yesterday during an interaction with the people while on an unscheduled inspection of Eziowelle-Abatete road.

The governor charged the people of the state to take ownership of various projects being undertaken by his administration. “We cannot be everywhere. I am here today to inspect this road because concerned people posted something on the net. I urge you all to follow the projects we do in your towns and inform us when anything is going wrong,” Obi submitted.

The governor disclosed that the visit to the road project was not planned, but borne out of a message circulating on social media about the poor quality of the road. He said that in order to get-first hand information, he decided to ply the road, from its beginning, Afor Igwe, to where construction has terminated. He said he was glad the culverts in the road would make it to last and prevent erosion.

On some portions of the road that were not satisfactory, Obi appealed to the people to be patient as the asphalting already done is not the final. “The moment I got the news, I reached out to everybody, especially my Commissioner for Works, Arc Callistus Ilozumba. He called me back to say that he got in touch with the contractor handling the Job, who assured that the tarring that is subject of controversy was not the final. He assured that the Contractor would complete the road according to specifications, failure to do so, he said, would lead to the contract being cancelled,” Obi said.

In his response, Mr. Onwudike Johnson, a community leader, was full of commendation for the governor for coming personally to inspect the road, following the news about the road being peddled on social media. “By your today’s action, you have restored our hope in this country. You have proved that we still have those who are responsive to the people at the helms of affairs. It is a good demonstration of leadership by example,” Johnson said.
