DR. KEFAS DIALOGUES WITH CHINESE CONSTRUCTION COMPANY

 

As the state Governor, Dr. Agbu Kefas explores ways to attract local and foreign investment, he recently hosted a delegation of the Chinese construction giant CCECC Nigeria Limited in Abuja. The company, which is already present in Taraba state, is among the three construction companies handling the Mararaba-Baissa-Abong road awarded by the previous administration.

Dr Kefas at a recent interactive session with the company’s executives led by the Deputy Managing Director of the company, Jacques Liao promised to visit the Baissa road project which is important to the social and economic growth of Kurmi LGA and the state.

He commended the quality of work done by the company in other parts of the country and muted the prospect of cooperating with the company in the near future to build a railway from Jalingo to Gembu to tap the tourism and other economic potentials of the Mambilla plateau.

Dr Agbu Kefas spoke on the possibility of reviewing the Baissa contract to include provision drainages which are not part of the initial design given the heavy rainfall associated with the area, adding that henceforth, all road projects to be awarded by his administration must include drainages to ensure durability.

The Deputy MD of CCECC Nigeria Limited, Jacques Liao had told the Governor that the company specializes in road construction, railway, and airport, among other civil construction work and has been operating in Nigeria since 1991. He said CCECC is the biggest construction company in West Africa reputed for executing quality work citing the completed Abuja to Kaduna railway line as one of the most important projects it has handled in the country.

Mr Liao said as part of its corporate social responsibility, the company has been able to offer scholarships for degree programmes in top universities in China to many Nigerians; Taraba indigenes inclusive.
