Fashola Rejects Completed Houses, Roads In Kebbi

Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Babatunde Fashola on Tuesday warned that the Federal Government would not accept the 74 housing units and Jega-Yauri road project.

He said the projects were shoddily done.

The minister, who personally inspected the two projects in Birnin Kebbi, told the contractors to undertake the project within specification otherwise the government would not accept them.

He observed that most of the roofing of the bungalows in the Federal Housing Estate and road culverts were not done properly.

“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,” he said.

Similarly, Fashola told the contractor handling the Jega-Yauri road that he was not satisfied with the narrow culverts constructed along the road.

“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,” the minister said.

Mr Walid AbouJaoude of TRIACTA Nigeria Limited handling the road project pledged that the company would do all the necessary corrections and complete the project on time.
