To ensure that projects are delivered on time and according to specifications, Delta State Governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has intensified inspection of projects, saying any contractor who executes shoddy jobs would be blacklisted.

Addressing journalists yesterday at Ovwian, Governor Okowa assured that his administration was committed to executing projects which will stand the test of time.

Some of the roads he inspected before addressing journalists include, Kwale Township Roads, Ozoro/Oleh road, resurfacing of Ughelli/Agbarha road, maintenance of various roads to Agbarho, Ughelli/Afiesere/Ofuoma road, asphalt overlay of Ekakprame/Ekrokpe/Usiefrun road, Ugbomro road between DSC expressway and junction and the Ovwian main road.

Governor Okowa who expressed satisfaction with the level of work done at the projects, however, ordered that a staff of Ministry of Works who supervised one of the road projects at Kwale be queried for not doing the right thing.

“At all the projects inspected, I am satisfied with the level of work done and very surprised at the turn out of Deltans to receive us which was evident that the projects are people-oriented,” Governor Okowa said.

He stated that he ordered for query to be issued to the civil servant who supervised one of the road projects in Kwale because, he was not satisfied with the work done, asserting: “Things must be done right, we will not condone shoddy jobs.”

The Commissioner for Works, Chief James Auguye, Commissioner for Water Resources, Sir Fidelis Tilije, Commissioner for Justice, Mr Peter Mrakpor, and that of Information, Mr Patrick Ukah, among others, accompanied Governor Okowa on the inspection tour.

In a chat, Mr Ukah stated: “You can see that our Governor is a man of the people, the reactions of the people was evident that he is a grassroots man who is committed to uplifting the standard of living of our people through the SMART agenda.”

“Governor Okowa’s administration has delivered beyond his electoral promises despite the recession that hampered developmental projects in other states of the country,” he added, reiterating, “evidently, he has proven that he is a great manager of man and resources, the inspection of projects is to ensure that there is no compromise and we are all happy.”
