Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, today threatened to penalise contractors and consultants handling government projects suspected to be doing a shoddy job.
Addressing a large group of local and foreign contractors and consultants in state, at the Conference Hall of Government House, Awka, Obiano vowed to terminate the job of any contractor found to be performing below expectation.
The governor, who assumed office on Monday, also warned every contractor or consultant working for the state government to brace up for change and ensure the completion of all projects on the agreed terms and time.
He declared that his relationship with consultants would be based strictly on performance and not on the basis of business as usual.
“We will be checking the quality of your work and so long as you are doing your job as agreed, you won’t have problems with us. For people doing designs for us, we want the best quality in terms of designs,” Obiano stressed.
He, however, assured the contractors and consultants that anyone who did a credible job and met contractual obligations would be retained. He made it clear that he expected every contractor working for Anambra State to show an appreciable level of commitment in the day-to-day execution of projects in the state.
Governor Obiano disclosed that his administration would hold extensive discussions with all contractors and consultants to establish the minute details of each contract under execution in the state and ensure a strict compliance.
He also assured that his administration was ready to fulfil its contractual obligations as long as the contractors would deliver fully on all the terms of the contract.
Contractors and consultants who attended the briefing were drawn from RCC, IDC and CCC construction companies, Akiota Works Ltd, Pachuks Engineering Company Ltd, New Ideas Construction Company, Enplan Group Consultants and Nnoli and Associates Ltd.
