You could recall on the 11th day of May, 2021, I raised alarm here on the Social media calling for the Governor to arrest the contractor handling Mcc/Uratta /Toronto Junction road for unprofessional and substandard engineering work. The contract job already executed in my estimation has reached about 45% but seems to lack best practices in construction and quality engineering.
I am happy to inform you that Governor Hope Uzodinma has revoked the contract and re-awarded it to Leo9 Asphalt and Construction; the engineering firm that handled Relief Market, Shoprite /Dick Tiger /Methodist, Ihechiuwa roads acknowledged by Imo people for excellent engineering and construction.
I am happy seeing the new construction and engineering company taking necessary surveys required to give the road deserved attention.
While I understand the challenges the government face in area of funding, I urge the governor to declare a state of emergency on the Road Safety/Toronto/Nkwo Orji road. That particular road network, connecting to Naze Junction which is getting government attention at the moment is highly strategic in opening Imo for economic development.
My name is IfeanyiCy Njoku, let’s criticise to effect positive change as partner in Imo development, not to pull the government down.
