Akwa Ibom Govt Warns Residents Against Anti-Development Attitude.

A'Ibom Govt. Warns Residents Against Anti-Development Attitude.

The Akwa Ibom State Government has warned those in areas where construction works are ongoing to stop impeding growth and development by hurriedly erecting new illegal structures along the right of way.
The State Commissioner for Works, Mr. Ephraim Inyaneyen, emphasized on this during Tuesday's inspection of ongoing projects in the State.
The Commissioner who supervised demolition of such structures he described as "speculative" in some places in Uyo and Uruan local government areas, identified such illegal property to include kiosks, make-shift t shanties, tombstones and fences which cannot attract any compensation.
Speaking further, the Works boss frowned at property owners who, upon this clarification, are in the attitude of making insinuations, raising false alarm, and sometimes going as far as blackmailing government for refusal to pay compensation for such illegal structures.
The Commissioner was very particular about the situation along 19.6 km Anua Mbak Ishiet Road where such illegal structures were found to have sprung up, a situation that has impeded progress and pace of work on that road.
Describing such attitude as "improper, treacherous and anti-development", the Commissioner maintained that those involved in such acts are selfish and therefore cautioned them against it.
Mr. Inyangeyen however expressed satisfaction on the progress of work on the 3.5km Ring Road 2. He nevertheless urged the contractor handling the project, Qumecs Nigeria limited, to double up and take full advantage of the dry season. He accordingly assured Akwa Ibom people of government unrelenting commitment to deliver on its promises of taking growth and development to all nooks and crannies of the State in line with the Completion Agenda.
Other inspected on Tuesday include the 14.5 km Uyo/Airport junction-Okopedi Okobo Road handled by EPL Construction Company.
