The Kwara State government has expressed displeasure over the poor quality of job carried out at Geri Alimi underpass, resulting in noticeable cracks on the multibillion naira project which the last administration inaugurated only in May.

Mr Alabi said the collapse of the water pipe — resulting in deflection of water in the area — was as a result of structural deficiency which then led to the crack in some portion of the bridge.

He warned that such act would not be condoned by the new administration inv view of the huge sum of money spent on the construction of the bridge by the immediate past administration.

The Abdulfattah Ahmed administration had spent N3,639,444,659.04 on the underpass. The obvious crack on the bridge has raised concerns in the state, with citizens questioning the integrity of the structure and the danger it poses to the public.

The deputy governor has nonetheless ordered relevant authorities, including Ministries of Water Resources and Works, to urgently address the issues to avoid loss of lives or disruption of businesses around the area.

Alabi further explained that the security and safety of the people is paramount to the present administration and would not accept shoddy jobs from any contractor.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Works, Alhaji Garuba Majo, and his Water Resources, Dr Adesola Afolabi, conducted the Deputy Governor round the damaged portion of the bridge.
