By John Eche
The Senator representing Edo North Senatorial district of Edo state in the National Assembly, Senator Francis Alimikhena has tasked communities in the area on the imperative of cooperation in the execution of projects.
He stated this at the flagging off of the emergency rehabilitation of the N450million Ugbeno-Ayogwiri-Fugar-Agenebode road
Alimikhena who is also the Senate Deputy Majority Whip and who had been elected on the platform of the ruling All People’s Congress said the repair of the seven kilometers road was in fulfilment of his electoral promises.
He said the repairs would reduce challenges faced by motorists and commuters on the road which connects two local government Areas.
He however advised the people of the communities to give contractors handling the project the maximum support to ensure timely completion of the work.
“We must rebuild and modernise Edo north to compete with other senatorial districts in the country. It is also my expectation that the contractors would not only deliver quality work, but that they would equally complete the projects on schedule,” he said.
On his part, the contractor handling the project, Shifodunrin Ayodele, assured that the rehabilitation of the road would be completed within 21 days.
According to him, all the necessary equipment for the work was already on site, even as he appealed for the cooperation of the host communities to meet the target date.
A resident of the area, Mohammed, Ahmed commended the senator for initiating the project which he described as a laudable one that would impact positively on the socio-economic well-being of the people of the area.
