BREAKING: Soludo terminates road contract over poor performance by contractor


Anambra State governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo has terminated a road contract awarded to a contracting firm, NBHH Engineering Company.

Governor Soludo lambasted the company over negligence and delay in delivering nine roads totaling 14.053 km in Okpoko.

The Governor announced the immediate termination of the road project contract when he visited the site unannounced on Tuesday, February 20, 2024.

Soludo who addressed the supervisor of the project said: “This road was supposed to be ended by June last year. Eight months afterwards, you are yet to complete it.
