Poor supervision, funding, engagement of sub-standard construction companies and corruption have been identified as the major factors that hinder completion of projects, especially roads, within the specified time frame.
These were the submissions of guests on “Media Link”, a Radio Nigeria Enugu live interactive programme.
One of the guests and Dean, Faculty of Management and Social Sciences, Godffrey Okoye University, Enugu, Professor Onyema Ocheoha while lamenting the poor state of some federal roads in the South-East Zone, said greater commitment and transparency were needed in governance.
Contributing to the programme, a Public Affairs Analyst, Mr. Josephat Omeke noted that disrespect for rule of law and due process also contributed to the delays and abandonment of projects that were of great importance to the people.
Mr. Omeke explained that transportation by road contributed significantly to the socio-economic wellbeing of the people and as such deserved maximum attention from various governments.
Callers in the programme urged government to monitor on-going projects to ensure their completion.
They equally called for the sustenance and completion of projects, inherited by governments from their predecessors.
