Barely one month to the commencement of academic and non academic programs at the Institute of Technology and Management, ITM,Ugep, also known as Cross River State Polytechnic, Governor Liyel Imoke has issued contractors handling various projects at the institute two weeks to complete their remaining work.
Imoke who was inspecting the progress of work in the institute said that the January ending resumption date of the school remains sacrosanct.
The governor had earlier promised during the ground breaking ceremony in July 2013 that he will monitor the progress of work in the Institute on a weekly basis, a promise that has been near fulfilment as the governor inspects the project every weekend he is available in the state capital.
A source in the governors visiting team told CrossRiverWatch that the Governor was impressed with the level of work going on at the Institute’s staff quarters, administrative block, lecture rooms as well as male and female hostels while finishing touches are been put on the security fence and supply of equipment and technical tools.
“If the contractors are asking you for two weeks to complete their jobs, allow them to enable them do the quality work in line with our specifications but the two week must be adhered to this time.
“The work at the site is 85-90% completed so there is no fear about our resumption date of January ending.” our source quoted the governor at the inspection site.
Those at the Governor’s inspection team include the Commissioner for Works, Barrister Legor Idagbo, Commissioner for Education, Professor Offiong Offiong, Coordinator of the institute, Professor Ukam as well as former Vice Chancellor of Unical and Chairman of the Institute Project Execution Committee, Professor Ivara Esu who described the work on the site so far as unprecedented vis- a-vis the period when the construction at the school started.
