Bayelsa govt urges contractors to keep to specification
The Bayelsa State government has charged contractors handling government projects to execute their jobs according to standard and specifications, warning that the era of contractors cutting corners and delivering substandard jobs are over.
Chairman of the Directorate for Project Monitoring and Evaluation, Mr. Ebiye Tarabina, gave the charge during an inspection tour of ongoing projects in the state.
According to him, the directorate will spare no effort in ensuring that contractors kept to their contractual agreements.
The chairman, who noted that Governor Douye Diri was committed to the completion of all ongoing projects on schedule, charged contractors handling the various projects in the state to expedite action.
He said the projects were largely embarked upon to align the state with the league of cities with world-class infrastructures.
Tarabina said that gains from the present administration’s investment in provisions of critical infrastructure would soon be positively felt in all sectors.
At the Yenagoa /Oporoma Road, the chairman lauded CCECC, which is handling the project, for the speed of work, noting that the project was strategic and upon completion would lead to accelerated development.
An indigene of Oporoma community, Mr. Daniel Brazil, who is also an employee of the company, stated that the project would impact positively on the socio-economic status of the Oporoma community and southern Ijaw at large.
Projects inspected during the tour include: The Nembe unity bridge, the Bayelsa media complex, Ekeki, Igbogene /Tombia Road and Yenagoa /Oporoma Road.
