Setraco Nigeria Limited has resumed construction on the abandoned East-West Road dualisation project following the adoption of a motion by the House of Representatives moved by lawmakers from Bayelsa, Rivers, Delta, Akwa Ibom and Cross River.

The construction firm is the contractor handling Section II and sub-sections I and II of the project of the Federal Government covering Port Harcourt-Eleme Junction to Ahoada (Rivers) and Kaiama (Bayelsa) to Ahoada.

The House member representing the Yenagoa/Kolokuma/Opokuma Federal Constituency of Bayelsa State, Prof. Steve Azaiki, led the legislators from the five states to sponsor the motion.

The motion charged the Federal Government to urgently repair the neglected road by making sure Setraco moved to the site.

The company’s bulldozers were seen fixing the Zarama-Sampou-Opokuma nd of the East-West Road on Saturday.

Azaiki, who is a former Secretary to the Bayelsa State Government, said the “presidency informed me that Setraco has moved to site with photos to prove that work is going.”
