Governor Namadi Demands Timely Completion Of Road Projects

Jigawa State governor, Malam Umar Namadi, has inspected 26 ongoing road projects across the state and insisted on their timely completion for the benefit of the public.

The projects inspected by the governor include the rehabilitation and reconstruction of bridges damaged by flooding in the last two years.

Speaking with the contractors, Governor Namadi expressed satisfaction on the quality of the job at the site and urged them to speed up the work for a timely completion.

The governor said Jigawa is ready to continue patronising any company that demonstrates seriousness and sincerity in handling its projects.

He said, “We will not joke about paying your money as soon as you complete the work; however, we will not tolerate or accept any breach of contractual agreement particularly on quality and timely completion according to the specification.”

Namadi assured the people that his government would ensure the completion of all the ongoing road projects and award new ones to facilitate the movement of goods and services for social and economic development.

The state commissioner for works and transport, Gambo Malam, said the road projects had a total distance of 360 kilometres, while in some roads the works included rebuilding the collapsed bridges and provisions of new ones.

He added that so many measures were taken in the reconstruction of the roads and bridges damaged by the flood to prevent such problem in the future. The contractors assured the state governor that they would deliver quality jobs and in good time.
