Zulum flags-off N11.5 billion works for 10 major roads, bridges

Borno State Governor, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum, on Thursday, flagged-off N11.5 billion worth of construction works for eight major roads and two bridges cited in key parts of Maiduguri, the state capital.

A Chinese construction company, Eighteenth Engineering Company (EEC) and a Borno-based construction company, Obtuse Tech Engineering Company Limited, both of which are to deliver the roads in one year in respect of contract awards recently signed after biddings and other processes were completed.

Zulum performed the flag-off around the popular post office round about on Ahmadu Bello Way in Maiduguri and it was attended by the Deputy Governor, Umar Usman Kadafur, SSG, Usman Jidda Shuwa, State APC Chairman, Ali Bukar Dalori, commissioners, other top government officials, site engineers and other technical persons.

The 10 construction works comprise dualising of Ahmadu Bello Way to Bama road junction, Shehu Sanda Kura road, Monday Market roundabout, Elkanemi roundabout and Mogoram to Lafiya road with a bridge to be cited at Ahmadu Bello way linking Bama road, and another bridge in the work that will connect Elkanemi roundabout to Lagos street junction.

Other construction works will cover Baga road market- Jajeri – Umarari- Bulabulin and another one to link Texaco- Churchkime – Abdu One roads.

The 10 roads and bridges which will combine the coverage of 13.34 kilometers are among 20 deliverables listed by Governor Zulum during his 2022 budget presentation at the Borno State House of Assembly back in November 2021.

Speaking at the flag-off, Zulum said the works are part of his administration’s urbanization drive through infrastructural development as part of Borno’s recovery and development plan.

Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Works, Engineer Ali Goni Lawan, who currently oversees the ministry, assures the governor that supervisors will work closely with contractors to ensure a standard and timely delivery.

The PermSec had on January 14, 2021, presided over the awards and signing of contract agreements between Borno State Government and the two contractors for the roads and bridges projects.
