ABUJA, (CAJ News) – THE Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has hailed the rehabilitation of the Calabar – Itu Road by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), describing it as an historic development.
APC said in its current state, the facility is “deplorable and deadly.”
“We heartily congratulate the NDDC under the dynamic leadership of Mrs. Ibim Semenitari for moving swiftly to rehabilitate this all-important road that traverses Cross River and Akwa Ibom States, as it has since become a big nightmare for travellers and transporters,” Rivers APC Chairman, Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya.
He spoke in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.
The Acting MD/CEO of NDDC, Chief (Mrs.) Ibim Semenitari, the Eleru of Ifon Kingdom, Ondo State, who took a recovery visit to the collapsed road on Sunday, August 14, has demonstrated that she is not only the pride of Niger Delta region but also the heroine of our people,” Ibiamu said.
Among contractors for the project include Atafranc Nigeria Limited and Darycet International Nigeria Limited.
