Kogi Assembly Summons Contractor Over Abandoned Ihima-Oboroke-Obangede Road Project Amid Rising Criminal Activities

The Kogi State House of Assembly has taken decisive action by summoning Spectrum Engineering LTD to explain the reasons behind the abandonment of the 6km Ihima-Oboroke-Obangede road reconstruction project. This move comes in response to growing concerns about the deteriorating condition of the road, which has become a breeding ground for criminal activities.

The urgency of the matter was highlighted by Otokiti Alhassan Zakariya, the member representing Okehi Constituency, who emphasized how the dilapidated road has not only impeded commercial activities but also posed serious threats to the safety and security of constituents and travelers alike.

Zakariya pointed out that the abandoned project has created an environment conducive to criminal activities such as robbery, kidnapping, theft, and rape, with reported incidents occurring almost daily. Despite the road being under construction since 2016, Spectrum Engineering LTD failed to meet the agreed-upon completion timeline, despite receiving a significant portion of the contract sum.

The Speaker of the House, Aliyu Umar Yusuf, expressed deep concern over the escalating security challenges facing the state, citing personal experiences and highlighting the urgent need for action to safeguard residents and restore peace and order.

In response to the situation, the House directed the Committee on Works and Infrastructure, along with the Kogi State Ministry of Works, to conduct an on-the-spot assessment of the project. The aim is to formulate appropriate recommendations to address the pressing issues surrounding the abandoned road project and mitigate the security risks posed by its current state.
