Flooding In Completed Road Projects in Akwa Ibom State: Gorrion Engineering Ltd States The Fact.


We are a reputable civil construction company with a track record of quality service delivery; Gorrion Engineering Ltd.

It has come to our notice, the unwarranted attack on our company by some sponsored and highly compromised Facebook urchins, parading themselves as indigenes of Akwa Ibom State.

We hereby state, unequivocally and with every sense of responsibility that is untrue, insinuations by a cross section of some misinformed public that it abandoned the Ikot Ebak Stadium/Ikot Esse Road located in Akwa State, which led to the flooding of the road after commissioning

The Engineering company stated this in a statement by its General Manager, Engr Yusuf Abdula, on Saturday and made available to newsmen in Uyo

According to the statement, "it has come to our notice, the misinformation being sponsored against the company on the avoidable flooding of the Stadium road in Essien Udim LocalGovernment Area, few days after it was commissioned. 

"we state here without any reservations that we never abandoned the road project as erroneously being peddled by some highly compromised social media urchins, rather we are happy to state that the road was duly completed and commissioned as expected.

"Let it also be known that, if the appeal by the contractors to land-owners in the area to release a portion of their land, close to the road for the construction of culvert that would see to the diversion of flood into the river was aceeded to, (with the readiness of the contractor to even pay for it), the flooding would have been avoided.

"We hereby reject in its entirety, a sponsored report and pictures of the flooded road by some highly compromised individuals in the social media that the project is sub- standard

"Claims by some ill informed and biased commentators on the social media platforms that the job was sub-standard and that despite completion, it is still largely flooded and impassible by motorists, is far from the truth and a story meant only for the gods. 

"All appeal to make available spaces to construct water channels that will give the project a befitting look were refused by the community members. Even in cases where few persons were ready to offer us their lands, others discouraged them from doing so. It was this back and forth that eventually left us with no option but to go ahead with the project. 

"Having successfully completed it, the flood expectedly emerged. But our men and equipment are at the site, trying to make sure that in coming days, Ikot Ebak Stadium/Ikot Esse Road will wear an uncommon look in line with the directive of the Senate President, Chief Godswill Akpabio, Abdula stated.

"We insist that the company under its founder, has maintained a track record of delivering excellent jobs across the country as and when due."
