FG Enforces Use of Concrete In Road Construction

Date:

The minister of Works, David Umahi, said the president has approved and enforced the use of concrete in road construction and therefore, there is no going back. He urged road construction companies nationwide to take a lesson or two from the ingenuity of Sermatech Nigeria Limited.

Sermatech Nigeria Limited is an indigenous road construction company currently handling a 28.6-kilometre distance from Odukpani to Itu in the dualisation of the Odukpani/Itu/Ikot-Ekpene Road which cuts across Cross River and Akwa-Ibom states. The dualisation project includes the construction of four bridges.

Umahi, visited the ongoing road dualisation handled by the company from the power plant section in Odukpani, Cross River to Oku Iboku, in Akwa Ibom State, and commended the work so far, saying he was proud of what he saw.

Speaking after the inspection, the minister said: “This is an indigenous contractor and we are very proud of what he is doing. I want more indigenous contractors to come and learn from Sermatech.

“I understand we owe you some money, I will ask my people to pay you immediately. I urge you to stick to the standard technical aspect of this construction work. Allow for 60 days of consolidation through vehicular movement.

“We are gradually moving to a new era of concrete roads in the country, which is tagged: Renewed Hope Reinforced Concrete Agenda. This idea is that of President Bola Tinubu and we are going to enforce it.”
