“We are impressed by what Zenith Construction Limited has done on section one of Atimbo-Akpabuyo road, other contractors who failed to adhere to contractual agreements will be blacklisted and barred from handing any contract in the Ministry unless they return to site and make amend.”


Some of the projects visited included erosion control at O’dwaya street in Calabar South, Sections one and two of Atimbo-Akpabuyo road, in Cross River State.


The Minister lamented that the project in Calabar South was one of the Ministry’s Projects awarded under the 2017 Appropriation, noting that for the fact that the road had started deteriorating in less than seven months of execution showed that the job was truly done but poorly executed.
