“We are here to see what they have done because you cannot know the extent of work just from the paperwork. I am very impressed seeing what they have done.

“It is to discharge water from Owa-Alero to Iyi-Ama stream. They have assured us that the job will be completed in the next four months.

“I am satisfied with the work done so far by the contractor, CCECC. What is going on here is the same thing going on in Warri. The other phase of the Warri storm drainage project will soon commence.

“The only way to cure the flood water problems here is to build this stormwater drainage and that’s what we are doing here.

“The major work of about 75% has been done already. The remaining 25% will be completed by April like the contractor said”.
