Nasarawa govt frowns at slow pace of work on Toto Road proje

The Nasarawa state government has frowned at the slow pace of work done by the contractor handling the 48.7klm multi-million Toto-Umaisha road project in the state.

Chairman of the state House of Assembly committee on Works, Hon. Suleiman Yakubu Azara (APC, Awe South ) made the statement on Wednesday while inspecting the road project.

Hon. Azara, however commended the contractor over the quality work done over the covered milestone but worried with its slow pace. 

The Chairman said the inspection was not to witch hunt any contractor but to ensure compliance with the job specifications.

He said, "I am very happy seeing you working diligently but redouble your efforts. I will not take it likely if I come here again and see slow pace of work.

“We are here to inspect the rehabilitation and upgrading of the 48.7klm Toto-Umaisha road in order to assess the level of work done by the contractor.

“As the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has empowered us to oversight the activities of MDA and Mr Speaker, Rt. Hon Ibrahim Abdullahi Balarabe has directed all the House standing committees to oversight MDAs under them, hence the need for this inspection visit".

The committee chairman added that he would continue to inspect projects across the state to disallow contractors short change the state government.

He added “We want to make sure that contractors adhere strictly to their project specifications by ensuring that quality and standard jobs are delivered.

“We also want to make sure that what contractors recieved from the state government is commesurate with the work done".

Azara while he urged the contractor to put more efforts toward the completion of the project advised the management of the Ministry of Works to continue to intensify efforts in supervising projects across the state.
