Julius Berger

Nigeria’s leading engineering construction company, Julius Berger Nigeria Plc, has been declared “the most reliable construction company in Nigeria”.

The former governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, made the declaration during the commissioning of Rumuepirikom flyover bridge at the Rumuepirikomroundabout built by Julius Berger in Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State last Wednesday.

Oshiomhole thanked Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, for his moral and financial support to the company for the success of the project, adding: “To achieve this type of great and qualitative infrastructure that is visible in Port Harcourt for all of us to see, Julius Berger does not need moral support…Just pay them their money and they get the job done with excellent results; they remain matchless in terms of contractual performance, engineering competence and technical quality.”

The former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) further commended and congratulated the Rivers State Government for its wisdom and prudence in subscribing to the proven and lasting Julius Berger quality and impeccable engineering standards in its execution of serious infrastructural works in the state.

Speaking at the event in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, the Managing Director of Julius Berger Nigeria Plc, Dr Lars Richter, said the contract for the construction of the Rumuepirikom flyover was awarded to the company on May 6, 2021, with a completion period of 12 months.
