Just 2 months after being tarred, a 4-kilometer length of road in Edo State’s Ohanmi, Owan East local government area, was damaged by water.

TrackaNG, a project by civic tech organization, BudgitNG, raised alarm about the substandard work done on the road in a Twitter post on Tuesday, August 24, 2021.

The project was awarded to Messrs Hunslow International Limited by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Tracka said millions of naira were allocated to the project, and called on anti-graft agencies to investigate the process.

“Kindly help do the NEEDFUL,” the agency said.

Edo was similarly in the spotlight last month after a resident complained in a viral video about a poor road project in the Akoko-Edo Local Government Area of the state.



The project was also handled by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture And Rural Development who awarded the contract to Royal Jeff Nig Ltd.

Governor Godwin Obaseki directed a state agency to take over the road project after describing the work done as substandard.
