The design for the completion of the Oron-Calabar axis (section 5) of the East-West road has commenced by the contractors handling the project.

Vanguard reports that the contractors; Amana Consortium Limited and Etteh Aro and partners met with traditional rulers in Oron and Calabar to solicit their support during the execution of the project.

“We are here to intimate the elders and the people of the host communities that work on section 5 of the East-West Road project would start. We don’t want our personnel trying to do their work on the road to encounter community resistance,” said Mr. Edet Amana, the Chief Executive Officer of Amana Consortium limited at Oron, Akwa Ibom state on Wednesday.

“We, the consultants and those who would be working on the road are seeking your royal blessings so that, as you bless us, we would go about doing our work peacefully,” Mr. Amana said and added that the East-West road (Federal Trunk A2) is a dual carriage way which stretches from Warri in Delta State to Calabar, and will link up with Ikom (Federal Trunk A4) at Odukpani in Cross River State.

Mr. Amana further pledged to deliver on the job as he will deploy drone technology which will provide annotated documentation in real time for a review at the designer’s convenience.

The controversial section 5 of the East-West road suffered a lull due to the immediate past administration’s decision to re-award the contract in dollars alleged Mr. Usani Usani, the Minister for Niger Delta Affairs.
