Firm Gets Contract to Fix Potholes in Edo

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

A British-Nigerian company known as Quikfix Nigeria Limited has signed a deal with the Edo State government through 1st Man Global to carry out pothole repairs for the next 5 years using its technologically-advanced Instant Road Repair, the world’s leading highway repair product.

Instant Road Repair, currently used in over 40 countries worldwide, is ideal for the Nigerian climate, being uniquely capable of application all year round and in all weather.

The product provides a once-only permanent repair in minutes which can be driven-over immediately with minimal impact upon traffic flows.

Quikfix Nigeria provides a 5-year guarantee with every repair and delivers a turnkey service throughout the whole State.

Initially, repairs will be carried out using ready-mixed product imported from the United Kingdom until a factory is opened in Edo State for local manufacture.

The company has a policy of only employing and training 100 percent local people and recruitment will start soon for administrative, repair and production crews.

In concluding contract negotiations, Managing Director of Quikfix Nigeria, Mr Nyema James, said, “The Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, recognises how critical it is to maintain an efficient and safe road network, to create jobs for the great people of Edo State and to deliver an economical, permanent solution to a major problem. “We are delighted to be able to support the Governor in his efforts to improve road conditions, lessen the number and severity of accidents, reduce congestion and provide skilled employment.”
