Anambra State Governor Charles Soludo has terminated a road contract awarded to NBHH Engineering Company.

The governor announced the immediate termination of the road project contract when he visited the site unannounced on Tuesday, February 20, 2024, and lambasted the company for negligence and delay in delivering nine roads totalling 14.053 km in Okpoko.

Soludo, who addressed the supervisor of the project said: “This road was supposed to be ended by June last year. Eight months afterwards, you are yet to complete it. You don’t have the capacity to do the job. The job was supposed to last for nine months and you were adequately mobilised.

“This is February 20 and you are supposed to have delivered the job. It shows that you are totally incompetent to do the job. After we paid you 50 per cent mobilisation. There is nowhere in the country that 50 per cent is paid. Here and here, this contract is terminated and you can remove your things here and tomorrow we will know who will complete this project.”

The nine road projects are domiciled in Okpoko, a sprawling slum in the heart of Onitsha, which the governor had sworn to transform.
