COVID-19: Niger state Govt. prioritizes ongoing projects


Gov. Sani Bello vows to complete all projects started by his govt.

Niger state Governor Abubakar Sani Bello, has assured of his administration’s readiness to prioritize ongoing projects in the state, following a shortfall in revenue generation occasioned by the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic.

A statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary (CPS) to the governor Mary Noel-Berje, and made available to Summit News, said that Gov. Sani Bello gave this assurance when he embarked on an  assessment tour of ongoing projects in the state.

While at the re-awarded 10Km Tagwai Dam road project site in Tungan Goro, Chanchaga, Gov. Sani Bello said that his administration is taking inventory of all on-going projects, so as to complete the ones that have attained appreciable level of completion.

He assured that his administration would complete all its projects, as doing otherwise will mean going backward. 

The governor assured that all the projects that have direct positive impact on the people would be completed.

According to him, the contractor handling the Tagwai Dam road project has demonstrated that it has the capacity to deliver as it has executed similar projects within the state.

The state Chief Executive said that his government will continue to monitor the contractors to ensure that they speed up work and finish in good time as stipulated in the contract terms especially now that the rainy season has set in.

The Tagwai Dam road project had suffered an initial setback in the past four years as the earlier contractor handling the project lacked the capacity to handle the work leading to its revocation.

A new contract was, however, awarded to Messrs Construction Products Nigeria Limited (CPN), at the cost of over N678 million.

Gov. Sani Ballo, who noted that there, is need to provide ease of movement for those plying the road stressed that timely completion of the road project is non-negotiable.
