Constuction of New Nsukka Anglican Road: We Are Following Original Design- FEROTEX Management

By Alphonsus Nweze

The management of Ferotex Nigeria Limited, the Construction company handling the construction of New Anglican Road in Nsukka, Enugu State has said that they have strictly followed the design given to them by the Enugu State Ministry of Works.
In a statement by the management of the company to correct some of the wrong impressions about the ongoing construction of the road, they challenged those who were not convinced about their explanation to an on the site verification in the presence of the media and officials of the State Ministry of Works.

The response by Ferotex Management became imperative following the concern of many people that the elevation of the road might cause monumental flooding that may lead to the sacking of the residents of the area.

But the truth, the management said, was that the topography of the New Anglican Road is flat and made water drain impossible without engineering adjustment to reasonable road elevation so as to enable free flow of water.

” If this elevation is not done as currently ongoing , the road will remain water logged and defeat the purpose which Enugu State Government is determined to achieve . To do the elevation is the best professional solution and this we MUST employ in the interest of the general good” said the management.

They said they undersood the concern of people who live along the road that the elevaton of the road might make the discharge of rain water from their homes more difficult.

However, they said when they were faced with a situation where the public good outweighs the interest of few individual, the public good must prevail, especially where there is remedy for the inconvenience of the private few.

“The solution for those whose buildings are affected is to do embankment that channels water back to the drain through a culvert we are constructing.We shall also support them professionally to direct the flood water to enable them redirect water from their homes into the culvert” they assured.

Continuing Ferotex Management said “We want to categorically state that the BEME for the road is as designed and has not been reduced or tampered with in any form by our company.

We challenge anyone with a contrary finding to a public on-site verification in the presence of the media and Enugu State ministry of works”.

They thanked the Enugu State Government for what they called the massive infrastructure regeneration it has embarked on in the whole of Enugu State, and, more particularly in Nsukka where they are deeply engaged.

“The Nsukka zone, (Enugu North) is witnessing, in her history, the first comprehensive and sustainable road, and other infrastructure revolution. Nsukka people with their level of education must resist the effort of people who are determined to distract the State government from her focus in Nsukka by using the new social media in our palms to cause disaffection and distraction.

Our offices are open and available for clarification by any citizen who wishes to make inquiry, but, we caution that people with motives other than the good of Nsukka people should not drag the government of Enugu state and our company to their destructive, jealous and hate laced vituperations” the Company warned.
They equally commended the citizens who have shown support to the Government of Enugu State which has continued to push forward the good works in the face of dwindling national income.
