“We intend to make the community feel comfortable and for the convenience of the people. It’s going to be across Remo. This is just a symbolic one for you to see how the roads look; most of them are really bad. In fact, some of them have been cut into two by erosion, and it’s not convenient for the people; they go round longer routes to get to their destination, which would have just been a short distance.
“The deadline for the completion of the roads is before the rainy season. That is why we’re trying to start early; usually, when the rain starts, it hinders a lot of work and I think I want to believe that is why most projects don’t get completed.
“The light is in phases. The first phase is about two hundred and fifty solar lights. Then the second phase is like another five hundred. So, we want to be scaling it up as we go,” he said.
Meanwhile, the contractor, Shola Victor, stated that the company is expected to complete the project in record time, saying that work will start in a week.
“Today, the flag is off. The road is about two kilometres long and has an existing drainage system. The same will be replicated in the three local governments of the federal constituency.”
“You can see there are existing drainages, which we will maintain to send the water through. With the help of my co-engineers here from the ministry, we are going to work together and make sure we have a perfect work delivery; just like we have just flagged up, we are going to start this week,” he emphasized.
