The Delta State Government has debunked media reports that suggest major construction companies are exiting the state as a result of “harsh working conditions”, saying reputable companies that have track records of quality project delivery like CCECC, Sectraco and Levante are very much on ground executing several projects across the State.

State Information Commissioner, Mr Patrick Ukah, in a statement on Wednesday said that the refutal followed reports in some online media on the Asaba airport project insinuating that some major construction companies are exiting the state as a result of “harsh working conditions,”.

The statement read in full: “I wish to categorically state that those reports are totally false and baseless.

“As at today, reputable companies that have track records of quality project delivery like CCECC, Sectraco and Levante are very much on ground executing several projects across the State.

“CCECC, a reputable Chinese company operating in the State, just finished the Cable Point Road Dualisation Project, Alisimie Ozanogo Road and is currently handling the Dualisation of the Owa-Eke/Owa-Aliero/Owa-Oyibu Road in Boji Boji Owa. In addition, the company is handling the reconstruction of Amekpa, Afiesere, Ofuoma Road and the Sector A of the Ughelli Asaba road Dualisation.

“Levante, another construction giant, is working on the Sapele-Amukpe Road Dualisation as well as Abraka Township Roads.

“Also, Setraco just finished the recently commissioned 10.8km Okpare-Olomu/Umolo/ Owodokpokpor/Kiagbodo Road in Ughelli South and Burutu LGAs.

“It is, therefore, spurious and amounts to cheap blackmail for anybody to say that these companies undertaking such high profile jobs have left the State for whatever reason.

“Despite the challenging economic situation in the country, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s administration has remained resolute in delivering on his SMART agenda by providing meaningful  infrastructure projects across the three senatorial districts of the State as well as massive empowerment of our youths.

“Delta State remains a haven for investors and Governor Okowa is determined to maintain our current status as one of the top two States on Ease of Doing Business.

“The Asaba Airport project is a very vital project to the socio-economic life of Deltans and Government will do everything possible to ensure that the right thing is done and the project completed to international standards”.
