The people of Idoma community have called on the federal government to as a matter of urgency investigate and bring to book Rockbridge Construction Limited, the contractor handling the dualization of Otukpo township road.

DAILY POST reports that Chairman of the Committee, Senator Kabiru Gaya yesterday disclosed that the federal government, last year paid the said contractor N1 billion for the project, but he never went to the site. It said no reason was given for the action.

Evidently, a signpost mounted in the heart of Otukpo showed that Rockbridge is behind the project, with the federal ministry of work as the supervisor.

Citizens of the area took to various platforms to call out on the contractor to explain why the project was abandoned, despite collecting the money from the Federal government.

First to release the salvo was social media activist and coordinator of Idoma Progressives Movement, IPM, Andy Kagawa Obeya.
