About a forthnight ago, Cross River State Governor, Prof. Ben Ayade flagged off the construction work on a 133.7 kilometers Mfom-Okpoma-Imaje-Bekwarra-Obudu-Obanliku dual carriage road.

Mr Paul discovered that this construction firm is only visionary, it does not exist in real time and space. Without any experience for the construction of roads. Neither certificate of competence nor overlay of previous construction jobs that they have done. Excerpt of what he said: Sydney Construction Limited. 'Following the revelation that trailed one of the companies awarded a 31.7 Billion Naira construction of Mfom-Bekwara-Obudu Ranch Road contract, Mr Tony Undiandeye made postulations that Sino Infrastructure Company Limited is only a consultant to the company that the contract was actually awarded to. In this case, the company is Sydney Construction Limited. 'In our previous exposition, we made a case that the Sino Infrastructure Company Limited was own by a Chinese. It is sad however to discover that Sydney Construction Company Limited is also owned by Lebanese. 'Governor Ben Ayade has during the campaigns made promises that he would return the State economy to the hand of local entrepreneurs. He made so much case for local content. But for 1 year and 6 months now, Governor Ben Ayade has not empowered any local company. Governor Ayade is always flagged by foreigners. If they are not Chinese, the are Thai. If the are not Thai, they are Lebanese. If they are not Lebanese, they are Irish, or Canadians. But never Africans or Nigerians. 'However, the Sydney Construction Company Limited, like it consultant Sino Infrastructure Development Co Limited is a fictitious company. The company does not have any experience for the construction of roads. No certificate of competence. No overlay of previous construction jobs that they have done. There is none at the CAC. The three Directors of the company share a 4 bedroom bungalow apartment at 4C Olugun Agbaje Street, Victoria Island. In fact, the rent on the property has not be paid for over 6 Months now. 'When my private investigators visited the premises, they were not allowed to go inside.

'The company was incorporated on the 17th of March, 2016. The company will by November 17th be 8 Months old.
