House of Representatives member for Calabar Municipality/Odukpani Constituency, Hon. Eta Mbora, has accused officials of the Ministry of Works (Calabar office) of corruption.

Hon. Eta told journalists in Calabar that the officials are colluding with a contractor to deliver a shoddy job.

The Rep, who revealed that he had drawn the attention of officials of Federal Ministry of Works in Calabar on the need for strict supervision of projects, said the contractor, Messer Cholaina Nigeria Limited based in Lekki, Lagos State, is messing up the construction of the Old Adiabo road.

He said: “After inspecting the Old Adiabo road, I feel very sad on its terrible state and has personally reported the matter to the office of the Minister of Works in Abuja and other relevant MDAs urging them to compel the contractor to return to site and quickly redress the anomaly before issuing certificate of completion to process any payment.”

He vowed that, “I will not allow any contractor to frustrate my constituency projects through poorly executed jobs, thereby exposing the envisaged beneficiaries to imminent danger and by doing so, negating the good intention of the government.”

Speaking, a concerned resident of the area, David Edem, Esq. appealed to relevant authorities to prosecute the contractor and the Federal Controller of Works in Calabar for allegedly conniving to sabotage the genuine intentions of the government.

Also speaking, Ene Ankot, Esq. said the management of the company should be held responsible for the low standard, stressing that the firm lacks professional integrity to execute any engineering.

Engr. Bassey Nsentip, Federal Controller of Works in Calabar has not responded to inquiries.
