The Deputy Majority Leader and member representing Akoko-Edo Federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon. Peter Ohio Akpatason has reacted to the viral video of his constituents using bare hands to peel off a new road, drain project in Igarra, Akoko-Edo Federal Constituency, Edo State. According to information gathered by our correspondent in Edo, the white elephant project which was sponsored by Akpatason was said to have gulped N200m.

However, in a statement made available to Igbere TV on Monday, Comrade Akpatason said he is very embarrassed over the short viral video which he described as ‘disturbing’.

It has been brought to my knowledge that the above road project awarded to Royal Jeff Nigeria Limited by Rural Development Department as part of the Zonal Intervention Projects in the 2020 Appropriation Act is allegedly being poorly executed to the dissatisfaction of my constituents.

I am personally very embarrassed by the disturbing allegations contained in a short video by one of my Constituents, who claimed that the ongoing job is grossly substandard.

Therefore, I request that Rural Development Department should urgently investigate the allegations as contained in the viral video and report back within 24hours with details of your findings for necessary actions to address this unpleasant development.

Also furnish my office with details of the awards as well as Bills of Quantity. Please twat as urgent.
