Ondo Govt reads riot act to Contractor handling Akure flyover on timely completion

Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa has read riot act to the contractor handling the flyover at Shagari Estate/Oyarugbulem on the need to ensure that the project is completed and handed over to the state government as scheduled.

Speaking through his Special Adviser on Infrastructure, Lands and Housing, Pastor Babalola Ayoade Joseph, during an unscheduled visit to the construction site on Tuesday, Aiyedatiwa said the visit became imperative because the contractor had promised to handover the project in July or August.

He explained that his administration is determined to work as promised that all ongoing projects he inherited from the late Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu would be completed by his administration.

Speaking with newsmen at the construction site, Babalola said: “We are here on unscheduled visit to see the level of work done at the overhead bridge construction site.

“The last time we were here, they promised to handover the project in July or latest August.

“On our side, we are owing them nothing and we expect that the project should have advanced beyond this level.

“Though he explained his own side, but still promised to meet up with the actual time he promised earlier.

“We appreciate that they are already launching the bims of the flyover. After this, they will lay the 30 meter bridge which is in the middle of the road. Then they will move to the decking.

“We really need to appreciate Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa for his commitment to this project.

“He’s committed to completing all the capital projects he inherited from the late Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu. This is one of the major projects. The people of the state are lucky to have him at the head of the affairs of the state.”

He, therefore, implored the people of the state to be patient with the administration, assuring that the contractor would not disappoint them.

Among other government functionary present at the site during the inspection include the Administrative Secretary, Ministry of Works and Infrastructure, Engr. Akin Omotola and other head of departments in the ministry, Engr. Funmilayo Oluwatayo, Director, Civil Engineering and Engr. Victor Oyetade, Chief Resident Engineer.
