No More Cutting Corners In Delta On Project Execution, Izeze Declares


The Delta State Commissioner for Works, (Highways and Urban Roads), Comrade Reuben Izeze, has said that it would not be business as usual as there would not be space to cut corners in project execution in the state.

The newly sworn in commissioner stated this on Wednesday August 23rd 2023, in Asaba when he assumed duty after his inauguration by Gov. Sheriff Oborevwori.

According to Izeze, there is no more cutting corners in project execution in the state.

”The governor does not cut corners, he is a man of very high standards and I know that the Ministry of Works will be one of his star ministries in the cause of this administration.

‘’The people of Delta are looking forward to the ministry doing something differently from what has been the norm.

”And I believe that it is time to do things differently. Whatever projects we are doing must be able to stand the test of time,” he said.

Izeze added that ”In this administration, because the governor has promised the people of the state the ”MORE agenda” to advance the state, I can assure you that we must get back to delivering superior projects.

‘’We will do projects that will make the people of Delta proud and understand that the Oborevwori’s administration means to keep its commitment to the state, particularly in the area of quality of roads and bridges both in the rural, urban, riverine and highways.”

Izeze charged the engineers in the ministry to be up in their game in realizing the visions of the governor in delivering quality projects that would stand the test of time.

Earlier, the Permanent Secretary, Mr Fred Edafioghor, who conducted the commissioner around the offices, disclosed that the ministries inherited over 400 projects at various levels of completion from the previous administration.
