Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr. Udom Emmanuel has ordered all contractors handling projects in the state to return to their different projects sites, assuring that more funds will be disbursed to ensure completion of projects embarked on.
He said soil testing to be carried out on all project sites with sufficient documentation to determine the quality and suitability of the work done, stressing that anything short of this would be inappropriate.

The Works Commissioner disclosed that, ongoing projects are in three categories, with category A being those near completion, B for those at 40 percent to 70 percent completion, while C is from 10 – 40 percent completion.
He also said the state government is determined to fund and ensure all projects are completed in the next two years.
