Rivers State Governor and Chairman, Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), Rotimi Amaechi, has unveiled a scientific device – the Automated Road Analyser to monitor the execution of road projects.

Amaechi, who unveiled the ARAN vehicles at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Friday, said the device would ensure that road projects were executed according to specifications.

The governor explained that the ARAN vehicles would be driven on newly constructed roads to determine their quality, adding that the measure would check fraudulent activities of some contractors who failed to adhere to project specifications.

Amaechi said, “The project has been commissioned already by what I directed them to do. I asked them to take the measurement of the quantities on Ada George Road because we have paid up a lot of money on Ada George.

“The road is supposed to move from 15cm to 80cm both on the wearing cost and the final cost so that it can last for a very, very long time. The same quality of work we did on Port Harcourt-Owerri Road. There is also Elioparanwo Road where I also asked them to take measurements.

“What this does for you is that contractors who are used to fraud in road construction will now know that they cannot succeed because as they are working, these vehicles are expected to take measurements of the quantities that they have put in place.

“There are quantities on all contracts and most contractors who want to cheat you will just not do that because you can’t see the quantities unless you measure by scientific means. What this does is that you bring science and technology into monitoring and evaluation of the work that they have done”.

The governor stated that the monitoring devices would be operated by trained personnel from the state Ministry of Works and from the Office of the Board of Project Procurement.
