Niger State Government calls contractors back to sites

Amidst the Novel Coronavirus pandemic, Niger State Government has called back all contractors handling various projects to sites.

Governor Abubakar Sani Bello disclosed this while inspecting some road projects under construction in Minna the state capital, saying life cannot be put on hold because of Coronavirus.

Bello said normal life has to continue as it was not definite when the pandemic will be over, saying that government must move on.

He called on those handling the various projects to observe all the precautionary measures put in place to avoid contracting and spending the virus.

The Governor, however, expressed satisfaction with the level of work ongoing, adding that they would put pressure on the contractors to deliver the work on time before the rains set in.

Bello said any contractor found to be defaulting in executing their work in line with specification would have their contract terms terminated.

Projects inspected by Governor Abubakar Bello include ongoing road construction at Morris Fertilizer Area and Tunga Low-Cost Road.
