The opposition People Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi State has called for the probe of contractor of the collapsed recently built Olympic Stadium fence at Ochudo city, Abakaliki.
According to a statement made available to newsmen by the publicity Secretary, Barr. Silas Onu, accused the contractor of being unprofessional, adding that allowing such to continue in such edifice would spell doom in the nearest future.
The statement reads:”It has come to the notice of the People’s Democratic Party that some ongoing projects in Ebonyi State that have unduly gulped large chunks of our State budget to the detriment of civil servants, health sector, youth development, education, poverty alleviation and the general welfare of the State, have already began to give way due to poor quality of work.
“We are disappointed by this turn of event and are calling on the State Governor to immediately order the arrest of the contractors for questioning.
“Even though these contractors proceed to site without indicating who they are on any public signage at their site, we strongly believe that the Governor knows them personally and will do well to call them to order.
“While we thank God that no life was lost to this poorly done job, we pray that a review of other projects be conducted to avoid them collapsing on people’s head when finally put to use.
“If we had a House of Assembly, this would have been the time to call for a public hearing with the aim of identifying these contractors and knowing their profile before they continue with these constructions. But, that won’t happen for now.
“We call on all and sundry to be vigilant at all them when within any of these newly built public edifices,” it added.
