Akwa Ibom governor has assured that all major projects undertaken by the state government would be completed on time and commissioned.
Mr Udom Emmanuel, while speaking to newsmen at the project sites when he undertook an inspection tour of ongoing projects in the state, weekend, said he was satisfied with the quality and pace of work on the IBB Flood Control and the Ekpene Ukpa Cable Stayed Bridge Projects.
At the IBB Flood Control Project site, the governor described the drainage project as one of its kind in the whole country, in terms of length and quality, maintaining that with the number of communities and lives the project stands to impact positively, it can pass for a legacy project.
“I’m impressed with the standard, the pace and then the quality of delivery. We had some expectations but as we can see here, they have gone beyond the standards we set for them.
“Then in terms of deliverables, they have also exceeded my expectations. I just want to reassure that this will be completely finished before we leave office, if we can go close to 90 per cent as at today”, he said.
“Everything you’re seeing here right now, apart from passing through the Ring Road III and then taking it to the outfall station, I think it’s almost done.
“We were also a bit concerned about how to take water completely out of the secretariat, but with what I’m seeing here right now, I think that has been solved.”
