Cross River Assembly orders Sydney Construction to return to abandoned project

The Cross River State House of Assembly has ordered Sydney Construction Company to return to site and complete a project which it had abandoned for over one year.

Sydney Construction Company won a contract to rehabilitate the Yahe-Wanokom-Wanihem-Benue Border Road to boast the socio-economic activities of the rural and agrarian communities along that road in particular and Yala communities in general, as well as check security threats posed by the bad road.

These resolutions were taken following a motion brought before the House by the Member representing Yala II State constituency, Hon Cynthia Nkasi, who lamented the bad state of the road which according to her, traverses the Yala Local Government Area.

A press statement issued by the information officer of the House, Mrs Itam Offor said that Nkasi lamented that farmers do not have access to major markets to sell their produce thereby causing poverty and rural-urban migration.

“The House further resolved that Sydney Construction Company which was awarded the contract for the road be asked to return to site and complete the work which has been abandoned for over one year.

“In supporting the motion, Member representing Yala 1 Rt Hon Regina Anyogu emphasized that, with the rainy season, the deplorable state of the road has grossly affected the socio-economic activities adding that the people are suffering.

“Members in separate remarks reiterated the importance of good road network for development and urged the State Government to embark on the rehabilitation of rural roads,” she stated.
