Kogi State Commissioner for Works and Housing Hon. Samson Bako on Wednesday in Oguma the Bassa Local Government Headquarters assured the people of Bassa of the readiness of the Kogi State Government to commence the construction of the abandoned 16 kilometers Odenyi- Oguma- Sheria road by the past Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administration.

Hon. Bako who according to the directives of Governor Yahaya Adoza Bello went to assess the situation of the Odenyi-Oguma-sharia road revealed that the governor would not play politics with the infrastructural development of the State.

In his words, “We are here based on the directive of Governor Yahaya Bello to come and see the situation of Odenyi-Oguma-Sheria road and the bridge ourselves, to see the level of work done by the contractor before the job was abandoned and now we have come and we have seen and we will report back to His Excellency for immediate action.”

Revealing the economic impact of the road if completed, Bako added that if the road was fully constructed and the bridge was done, more than 20 communities would be directly exposed to economic development and agricultural activities would be enhanced.

In the same development, the Director of Civil Engineering, Engr Akubo Hassan noted that all the abandoned pre-cast elements would be subjected to an integrity test before they could be used.

The site supervisor representing Vanguard Construction Company Ltd Emmanuel Enoh, thanked Kogi State Government for the consideration and promised to execute a job that could meet the taste of Governor Bello.

Mr Rizama Sheneni on behalf of the community appealed to Governor Bello to expedite action on the bridge so that their Agricultural produce would not suffer setbacks like the previous years, stressing that the natively made collapsed bridge has separated them from their farm.

Rizama also thanked the governor for coming to the aid of his people at this critical time of their economic Life.
