OYOINSIGHT.COM had few weeks ago reported that the Governor awarded the construction of the 21km Airport-Ajia-New Ife Road-Amuloko road project, which will also be funded using the Alternative Project Funding Approach to Peculiar Ultimate Concerns Ltd.
The award of the Airport-Amuloko road project to the company had generated concerns in some quarters in the state because of its non-indigenous status and poor accessibility.
Meanwhile, a search by OYOINSIGHT.COM revealed that the company the state government awarded the contract did not make available their contact information online.
The only web address with the company’s name is also not accessible.
The only available trace to prevent the company from being ‘faceless’ is its details which were available on the website of the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC.
The company’s CAC registration number is 739820. It was registered on the 4th of April, 2008.
The details of the company available on the CAC website also confirmed findings by OYOINSIGHT.COM that the company is a non-indigenous one.
The address of the company available on the CAC website read: No. 25, Okelue street, beside Jamb office, Asaba, Delta.
