An Enugu based social activist and the ADC House of Assembly (Nkanu East Constituency) Candidate 2019: Hon. David C Ani has urged the Enugu State Government led by H.E Rt. Hon Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to as a matter of urgency form an Independent Project Inspection team that will monitor infrastructural projects going on in the state to ensure compliance to standards by contractors.
Ani made this call in a Press Release he sighed anf sent to Jungle Journalist Media Ltd following the collapse of Emene -Abakpa newly constructed road.
He recounted that many roads constructed by this administration have pot holes already, due to the projects being executed by amateur contractors who were awarded such contracts as a means of settlement and as such uses inferior materials in the construction of these roads.
“Poor monitoring; little or no supervision and inspection while constructing these roads is what gave rise to all these deplorable conditions we find our roads, or how do we explain that a road that was commissioned two months ago has massive port holes”, he stated.
He added that the Governor should appoint a team from the opposition that will adequately work without sentiment and would be strict in enforcing zero tolerance in their service delivery.
Hon David C Ani who has been firing missiles at the state government for weeks now, argued that “Enugu State belong to all of us and we will not allow it to collapse under anybody.”
“Where the Governor does well, we will commend and encourage him to do more. And where he doesn’t, we draw his attention to it and urge him to do the needful.
He also emphasized on how committed his team, Nigeria Youth Advocacy for Good Governance Initiative (NYAGGI) are willing to support and encourage good governance in Enugu State and added that the team shall embark on an acountability tour to various Ministries in State starting from July 2020.
