A recent case is the activity of an unknown contractor who inscribed 7 kilometres of road project, whereas the project document stipulates that the road in question is a 10.9km that should terminate in Aho-Ogbo market via Ugbugbu-Anumachogwu.
However, checks by this newspaper show that the contractor has already completed his ‘job’ in front of the Palace of the District Head of Onyirada, at Olidero Ugbugbu.
Investigations has further revealed that contractor employed manual laborers and had no equipment on site. The only equipment employed in the course of the construction work was watering cans which they used to pour the bitumen on the road.
Also, findings by this reporter show that only about 3km was poorly tarred with few culverts out of the 10.9km. Culvert was constructed over the stream at Onyirada, instead of a bridge. The road is very narrow and below standard. It was observed that the road was not even compacted before tarring.
