The Edo State Government has taken over the construction of Lawani Crescent Road project in the Akoko-Edo Local Government Area of the state.

The action of the state government resonated after a viral video exposing the poorly executed Akoko-Edo Federal Constituency Road project, sponsored by Deputy Majority Leader, House of Representatives, Peter Akpatason, through the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

According to reports, Edo State government has also ordered the arrest of the contractor handling the project, while urging the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission to immediately commence investigations by inviting Akpatason, the facilitator of the contract, to explain his role in the execution of the project.

During the inspection of the project site on Tuesday, representative of the Governor and Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, said the state has maintained a standard in execution of road projects across the state, describing the project in Akoko-Edo as substandard.

The governor commended the whistleblower who brought the poorly executed road project to the attention of the state government, noting that the bad job done does not represent the standard of projects in Edo State or the Akoko-Edo community.

In a related development, the Deputy Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Hon. Peter Akpatason, has said the viral video by one Alaba Lawani at the site of an ongoing construction of a 200 metres link road in his constituency in Igarra, Akoko-Edo Local Government Area of Edo State was intended to discredit and malign his reputation.

Recall that a video, which went viral last Monday, portrayed a road and drainage system under construction in Igarra, which allegedly fell short of the standard, and is of poor quality.
