The Controller, Federal Ministry of Works in Anambra State, Engr. Adeyemo Ajani, has said that the second Niger bridge may suffer serious setback if government does not intervene urgently in the crisis between the contractors and communities as well as workers.
Ajani in an interview said work has stopped on the second Niger bridge and if there is no quick intervention, it might affect the scheduled date of completion.
According to him, work stopped at the site because communities are demanding for projects worth N500 millions, while workers are seeking promotion and increase in allowances.
The Controller added that the project does not have any issues in terms of funding, but that the communities are trying to delay its completion through their agitations and demands.
