NIGER STATE GOVERNMENT SIGNS 556 KILOMETER ROAD CONTRACTS WITH 37 CONSTRUCTION COMPANIES                                                                         22-02-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                      The contracts which will spread across the 25 Local Governments of the State, were sealed at the Government House, Minna.

The Commissioner for Works, Suleiman Umar signed on behalf of the State Government while representatives of the contracting firms signed for their respective companies.

Speaking at the event, Governor Mohammed Umaru Bago stressed that the execution of the Road projects became necessary to engender development across the State in line with his Urban Renewal Policy.

He observed that the State is having a huge infrastructural deficit hence, the Administration’s commitment to construct 2,000 kilometres of roads in the next four years.

The Governor urged the contractors to maintain standards in their work and keep to the agreed time frame as any compromise may lead to termination of the contract.

He assured the contractors that the State would liaise with all stakeholders to ensure the security of their lives and equipment while tasking them to be vigilant and report any suspicious activities to relevant authorities.

Lead Consultant, Olatunji Ajayi disclosed that 330 firms applied for the contracts and after evaluation of bids, 37 were selected for 37 lots of the project which has 252 roads in total.

Some of the Contractors who spoke to journalists appreciated the Niger State Government for finding them worthy of executing the projects and reassured their commitment to carrying out the projects according to specifications.

The contracts include township and inter-State roads, dual carriage as well as ring roads.
