The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola (SAN), has rejected some housing and road projects executed by contractors in Kebbi for failing to meet contractual agreement.
The minister said that the 74 housing units and Jega-Yauri road projects were shoddy while inspecting them in the state capital, Birnin Kebbi.
Expressing displeasure with the projects, he said, “The roofing is not standard and road culverts are not properly done. They have to reconstruct some of these buildings because we cannot accept them; their roofs are not well constructed.”
“I am not satisfied with these culverts, you have to reconstruct them.
“The government has overcome the challenges of funding but is now faced with the challenge of getting the project done in compliance with contractual agreement.
“With all clear intention, we cannot do the work, we have to entrust the contractors to do the work for us, hence they should do it according to the agreement,” he said about the road.
