government. According to him, Gov Ikpeazu have been “making case” for
the road since he came on board. Dr Ikpeazu went to the extent of
bringing NDDC DG and Works Minister, Raji Fashola SAN to assess the
business with the money meant for constituency projects.

confusion because he attracted the job as a member of housing committee

Housing and not NDDC.
