The tarred road in Nsukka turns into “black mud” after 2 months in operation

The tar can slide to anywhere nearby.

A Facebook user named Assam Owo has slashed out his frustration about the incompetent job done by a construction company which is responsible for the road between CEC and Staff Club from GS building in the University of Nigeria Nsukka.

Here’s what he wrote on his Facebook’s wall:

“About three months ago, Babatunde Fashola, the minister of works, power & housing came to UNN to announce that the federal govt. has offered a contract for the construction of internal roads in some federal universities. Soon after he left, the contractors in UNN started their work. Now about a week after the finished tarring one of the roads, the first major rain to fall on that tarred road has washed away that sand that they put on top of the existing road, which they called tarred road. Now I’m wondering, am I the only person seeing this APC fraud?

It's just 3 months of use that makes the road unusable

The damaged road between Staff Club and CEC

The tarred surface became so insecure

tar slides from the road surface

The tar can slide to anywhere nearby

Tar disappears from the road surface

If cars stay active on the road, soon it becomes an abandoned road, I believe

The photos say it all. It seems the tarred road that they assumed is nothing more than a black mud cover applied onto a road and ready to be “fleshed” at any time.

This is absolutely opposite to what Femi Otedola’s oil company did for the residence to build a new road from a downgraded one.
