Total Federal Road Reconstruction Plan Drawn up - Rep. Onuigbo

Rep. Sam Onuigbo laud His Excellency Babatunde Raji Fashola SAN for standing by his words...

The Umuahia-Ikwuano-Ikot Ekpene Federal Road has been a nightmare to commuters, as the road keeps failing despite several palliative works. It was in view of this that Rep. Sam Onuigbo intimated the Minister that the yearly ritual of palliative works can no longer work, hence the need for a total reconstruction of the road.

Rehabilitation patch-up seems not to yield tangible result  as the failed portions of the Umuahia-Ikwuano-Ikot Ekpene federal road deteriorates despite attention given so far, it appears plans are underway to commence the total reconstruction of the road, in accordance with the agreement between Minister of Power,Works and Housing, His Excellency Babatunde Raji Fashola SAN, and the member representing Ikwuano/Umuahia North/South Federal constituency, at the House of Representatives, Rep. Sam Onuigbo.

Speaking to a cross-section of Ikwuano people in Mesquite, Texas, over the weekend, Rep. Sam Onuigbo, who is also chairman, House Committee on Climate Change, informed them that the survey of the road from Ikot Ekpene junction in Umuahia, to Ikot Ekpene in Akwa Ibom state has been completed, and a reconstruction plan drawn up. He said that with completion of the soil tests, survey, and drawing up of reconstruction plan, costing was done, and the estimates show that the work will cost between N10-N15 billion.

The honourable member used the opportunity to laud His Excellency Babatunde Raji Fashola SAN for standing by his words which has seen this very important phase completed, and urged the minister to continue to do his best and see to the awarding of the contract, and the completion.
