Urahmah media

Akwa Ibom state government has mobilized  Nigerpet Structures construction company to  immediaty intervene on a fast encroaching erosion threat along Nung Udoe- Eket road. 

Ibanga who spoke yesterday while he was on- the -spot assessment of the road, disclosed that the state government has intervened in no fewer than  100 roads in recent months.

He explained that the value placed on the lives residing around erosion prone areas would not permit state government to wait for ecological funds before moving into areas with urgent need. 

“Since  Akwa Ibom people  are the beneficiaries,  government has to take proactive steps to ensure that the road is done early to give access to the people , otherwise the  affected communities  would be cut off. 

“That is why we usually have  contingency provisions in the budget so that when things like these come up, we can handle them”

Professor Ibanga said the contractor became an immediate choice for the emergency work considering the company’s expertise in erosion control interventions in the state.  

The  Project Manager of NigerPet Structures, Engr Eric Ese, who confirmed that the project would be completed within three weeks said, “We hope to complete this work within three weeks all things being equal. “
