The Imo State House of Assembly has resolved to investigate the road construction executed from 2011 to 2019 by the past administration led by former governor Rochas Okorocha.
In reviewing the activities that took place in the floor of the House between Monday, 15th July to Friday, 26th July, the media aide to Speaker Collins Chiji revealed that on Tueday, “the House deliberated a motion to set up an investigative committee to ascertain circumstances surrounding the award of road contracts in the state from 2011 to 2019.”
He went further to state that the House “resolved to set up an investigative committee to interface with the Ministry of Works to ascertain inter alia:
- The contractors/companies who were awarded these road projects
- The terms of such contracts
- Invite the contractors to appear before the investigative committee, with the award letters of such contracts, bill of engineering measurement and evidence/mode of payments in respect to said projects.
- Find out from the contractors reason the road construction works were either poorly executed, uncompleted and some not even executed.”
