‘Don’t use substandard materials’ – Kwara govt warns contractors

The Kwara State government has warned contractors handling various water projects in the state against the use of substandard materials and delays in the completion of the projects.

Commissioner for Water Resources Usman Yunusa Lade handed down the warning during his meeting with contractors and consultants handling various water projects in the state.

Lade, who disclosed that the ministry will soon constitute a committee to assess the standard and quality of work done at the various sites of ongoing projects in the state, said: “Any contractor(s) discovered not to deliver good work or where the job done does not commensurate with the money received will not receive additional pay, and we are going to blacklist them and publish their names accordingly.”

The commissioner also declared that “it will no longer be business as usual,” noting that “contractors must be ready to deliver quality jobs within the stipulated time frame and in line with the contract agreement.”

Responding on behalf of their colleagues, representatives of Al-Hassan Limited and Dabarak Nigeria Limited assured that they would not disappoint the state government, especially given the confidence reposed in them.

They promised to do the needful without further delay.
