In clear technology-driven spirit, Rivers State Governor and Chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi has unveiled a scientific device – the Automated Road Analyser (ARAN) that would monitor and ensure that road projects are done according to specification.
Governor Amaechi launched the ARAN vehicles in Government House, Friday.
Amaechi explained that the device would be used by his administration to check quality of work done on road projects according to laid-down specification. The vehicles would be driven on newly constructed roads to determine their quality.
He said the measure would check fraudulent activities of some road contractors who fail to adhere to project specifications when constructing roads in the State.
