AKHA Lauds Gov Emmanuel Over 7km Awa Iman – Ukam Road


Determined to ensure quality job delivery by contractors, members of the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly Committee on Works and Transport, chaired by Rt. Hon. David Lawrence, has inspected the 7Km Awa Iman – Ukam Road project.

The 7km road project with two spurs awarded to VKS, was sometime last year inspected by the House Committee on Works and Transport which certain portions of the road were condemned and the committee ordered the contractor to carry out remedial work in order to suit standard.

This oversight carried out on Friday, March 27, 2020, according to the Committee Chairman, Hon. Lawrence, is to ensure that road projects awarded to VKS and other contractors in the state meet standard and as well determine level of compliance by VKS on failed portions of the road which the Committee had earlier observed.
