Reactions on the revoked Asaba-Oko road contract


Is this a good news or bad to the people of Oko community that after six years plus of HE; Senator(Dr)Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa administration a three kilometres road was awarded as stated and the contractor could not execute the project.
Is the revocation in good faith or a ploy to divert the attention of Oko community?


The question here is, was there no feasibility study on the scope of the job by both the state government and the contractor?
In less than twenty months this administration will come to an end and from all indications this government is on finishing stage and to embark on a major or capital projects will be well thought except otherwise (Government magic).
The state government could have engage Julius Berger since for at least to construct eight to ten(8-10) kilometres road as part of their social responsibility service to Oko community.
