The Member of Parliament for Tolon Constituency, Alhaji Habib Iddrisu has asked contractors working on the Golinga Datuyili stretch to stick to the timelines agreed for the project.
Delaying the project, he noted would seriously affect the people of Golinga who have been patient since the collapse of the bridge.
The Tolon MP made these statements during a tour around the 11.3 kilometer road passing through some communities in the constituency.
In the company of the District Chief Executive, Mrs Barikisu Yakubu, and some Regional Executives of NPP, the MP inspected the ongoing works and encouraged the people of Golinga to ‘hold on just a little while’.
The tour was intended to get first-hand information on the pace of work. The Tolon legislator after inspecting the project, commended the contractor for the work done so far
“I am impressed about the work so far, the contractor has done well, I am just urging him to speed up the work so that he can finish it before the rains set in, because the people find it difficult to move during the rainy season due to the collapse of the bridge. I am not sleeping because of this stretch,” he stated.
Some community members at Golinga thanked the MP, and the Government for ensuring Golinga got its fair share of development projects.
They indicated that the community gets cut off during the rainy season and this has been affecting their farming activities, hence the construction of the road and the bridge will go a long way to relieve them from suffering
The contractor of the Yelzuli construction firm, Chief Yelzuli, assured the people of Golinga and the MP that the projects being undertaken by his group, would be done within the stipulated time frame.
