THE Minister of Works, Engr. David Umahi has directed that 14 days termination notice be issued to Messrs China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation, (CECC) handling the Abia section of the Enugu-Port Harcourt Highway currently undergoing rehabilitation for reason of non-performance.

The Minister gave the directive yesterday Sunday 18 February 2024 during an inspection to assess the progress of work at Ozuaku, after the Imo bridge along Enugu- Port Harcourt expressway.

Umahi, in the statement, maintained that after 14 days, if the contractor fails to do the needful, then the project would be terminated noting that the government could no longer tolerate the situation where contractors would put blank ranks on site and escalate construction costs by delaying the completion of the project date.

While explaining the reason why contractors should demonstrate commitment, the Minister said contractors should understand that Nigerians are suffering, noting that the cost of non-completion of this project has a lot to do with contractors. 

He however assured that the government will force them out of site either on the terms of completion or on the terms of termination.

Umahi added that despite over 3,000 road projects inherited by this administration, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu must be commended for providing huge resources for road network stating he has been so sensitive to road infrastructure.

He emphasized the need for all Nigerians to support the Renewed Hope Agenda of the President, irrespective or notwithstanding any blackmail.
