The Interim Administrator, Niger Delta Development Commission, (NDDC), Mr. Efiong Akwa, has ordered contractors handling its projects to return to site immediately and complete their work.

Akwa gave the order while inspecting  the Niger Delta Regional Specialist Hospital, at Mkpat Enin Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.

A statement signed by the commission’s Director, Corporate Affairs, Ibitoye Abosede,  said Akwa explained that the commission would not go back on the regional hospital project because of its strategic importance.

He promised to pay for the milestones already achieved by the contractor to ensure the completion of the project.

Akwa, who was accompanied by directors of the commission, also inspected the 175-room University of Uyo permanent site hostel in Uyo Local Government Area.

He directed the contractors to report to the commission’s headquarters in Port Harcourt for a comprehensive evaluation of the constraints, which would assist in realising the project.

The Structural Engineer for the regional hospital, Blessing Umoh, described the project as three-in-one complex that comprised orthopaedic, cardiovascular and children/maternity sections.

The contractor, Elder Mfoniso Essien, put the completion status at 26 per cent and appealed for the payment of outstanding Interim Payment Certificates (IPC) to enable them return to site.

Inspecting the hostel project, Akwa stated that the NDDC was building similar hostels in other universities across the Niger Delta region.
