    It’s a very good lesson to us since no better hands are to be given anything.

    If the awarded contract followed the steps of construction contracting, the recourse for the CRSG or the owner of the facility is for the bonding company to bring in a qualified contractor to construct the facility. However, since things are never done right in Nigeria, it is likely that the project may not have been bonded causing the Chairman of the Cross River State Sports Commission, Mr. Orok Duke to call on Cross Riverians to “join hands to make this crook to refund our commonwealth”.

    What does he want the people to do?

    What he should do is to hand over the case to the State Attorney’s office to sue the contractor if the contractor refused to take responsibility for the collapse. These are issues that should be addressed in the construction documents prepared ahead of awarding the contract.

    Does the state government not have project management office to manage state projects??? It appears they do not have such office otherwise substandard construction would have been nipped in the bud.

    This is what happens when non-civil engineers are involved with awarding contract!
