Bambili Road Sink: Hon. Agho Oliver visits scene, sympathizes with victims

Mayor Tanjong and Hon Agho Oliver

Hon. Agho Oliver, Member of Parliament for Tubah/Bafut, this Thursday morning made an on-the-spot visit and assessment of the distruction caused by the unfortunate sink caused by the heavy rains of yesterday, and that led to the obstruction of traffic and destruction of property.
The Hon. MP was satisfied that all was quickly put in place for traffic to resume and that the local company charged with the road works was putting all in place to see to it that all ends well.

Hon. Agho Oliver was however disappointed that the local contractor carrying the repair/reconstruction works has so far been high handed and not cooperating with local authorities of Tubah.

He was concerned about reports presented to him by Tubah Council authorities that since the contractor started work, he has refused to collaborate with Tubah Council authorities. It was further revealed that the road sink could have been avoided if the contractor did not, in the course of opening up the Bambili stretch of road, discarded the existing three metre rings for one metre rings and never made sure the pathways were canalized.

While calling for greater collaboration between contractors and local authorities, Hon..Agho Oliver took time off to sympathize with some inhabitants of the area whose properties and homes were destroyed by the torential rains.
