Speaking to residents in the estate, some of them have this to say:

“We constantly pray that it should not rain, because if it does, then we are doomed. We thought that NDDC should have left the road as it was rather than award the project to an incompetent contractor, using a substandard material for the road repair; it’s now a night mare driving through these roads.

“We are just passing through this hell because the contractor refused to do his work,” Rufus Ayasie, a landlord in the area told our correspondent.

We don’t have any alternative routes, my car sunk on the mud poured on the road, you can imagine working three days and repairing your car the remaining days of the week, I strongly believe that this contractor just pour mud, grade it and pour condemn oil on top of the mud”.

The landlords have already made their plans known, they are giving NDDC to the 27th of September to call the contractor to order. failure to abide by this they threatened  to  file a petition to the SGF and the EFCC.
