“I want to thank His Excellency, governor Udom Emmanuel because I don’t see any government in Nigeria that would have awarded this kind of contract to a local contractor, so my sincere appreciation goes to the governor for taking the risk to award this contract to Hensek Integrated Services company.
“I remember in June 2019 when there was flood problem that His Excellency came here and that time this road didn’t have form or shape. And he said, Hensek there is a lot of pressure that I should terminate this contract, but I believe in your ability to deliver this job,” Engr. Okoko said.

“We designed and built this Ring road three to last a lifetime. Interestingly, the concept of the median was designed by His Excellency Udom Emmanuel himself. When he came for a road inspection in 2021, he said the median was too wide, that we can turn it into a jogging lane for people, so we incorporated it into the design.
“The tunnel is all the way from Ifa to Ibesikpo and underneath, 7m deep is a flood control tunnel, that is why before you used to see flood at the Timber market road. His Excellency, awarded this contract not only to de-flood ring road three but all the neighbouring communities.
