The House of Representatives yesterday urged the Federal Ministry of Niger-Delta to determine the cause of abandonment of the Ndoni-Aboh River Niger Bridge contract awarded to Bulletin Limited and ensure that it re-award to a firm that will speedily execute the project .
The position of the House followed a motion sponsored by Hon. UchechukuNnam Obi (Rivers PDP)
Presenting the motion, Obi said the since the award of the contract, Bulletin limited has not done any construction work on the proposed site.
“Concerned that since the contract for the construction of the said bridge was awarded in 2013, no construction work has commenced on the site proposed for the bridge.
“ Note that sometime in 2013 the Federal Government awarded a contract for the construction of Ndoni -Aboh River- Niger Bridge to Bulletin Limited “ he said
According to him, the bridge when constructed would link Rivers to Delta, Abia, Akwa-Ibom, Cross Rivers among other states there by ease the movement of the transporters from one parts of the country to the other.
“Aware that when this bridge is contracted, it would link Rivers state to Delta state and ease movement from Abia-Akwa-Ibom, Cross Rivers, River and Bayelsa States to Benin in Edo State and to the other parts of the country
“ Convinced of the importance of this bridge to the states in the South-South Zone of the country and the need for the Federal Government to release funds for it construction “ he stressed.
The motion was adopted by Lower Chamber after it was put to vote by the House speaker YakubuDogara.
