The House of Representatives Committee on Works, has frowned at the slow pace of work by Julius Berger Construction Company in handling of the Second Niger Bridge, the Lagos-Ibadan and the Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria-Kano road projects.

The Chairman of the Committee, Rep. Abubakar Kabir (APC-Kano) said it might be impossible to complete the projects for commissioning by the President Muhammadu Buhari – administration.

Kabir made the observation after receiving submissions from Julius Berger on all three projects at a committee meeting in Abuja.

“With the slow pace of work going on, there is no way that President Buhari will commission the 2nd Niger Bridge, Lagos-Ibadan Express Way, Abuja-Kaduna-Zaria-Kani road projects during his tenure.

“Julius Berger has shown its unfit and unprofessionalism in the manner and way it has handled these projects,” he said

The committee also accused Julius Berger of irregularities in securing the contracts as it was without due procurement process.
