Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has expressed disappointment at the slow pace of work at the ongoing construction of late Dr. Sam Onwu Diagnostic Centre in the state capital. The governor was taken round the complex project by the State Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Patrick Ikpenwa and the Commissioner for Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs, Rita Mba.
Ugwuanyi was also not happy that the contractors were doing shoddy job in a facility that should be of international standards. In the course of the project in section, stakeholders provided conflicting explanations to the questions asked by the Governor, a development that irritated the visitor.
Ugwuanyi however advised all officials involved in the project to put their records straight and present same to government for necessary action. The Governor made it clear that he was passionate about the project delivery, adding that they should expedite action on the project with a view to completing it. According to him, “all materials provided for the project should be made available without further delay.”
The governor equally directed the appropriate authorities to investigate the encroachment on the government land at the centre and brief government accordingly. Governor Ugwuanyi who left the centre in anger noted that the level of work so far done was not commensurate with fund expended on the project by government. At inception, the Enugu Diagnostic Centre was conceived to be of international class.
