Ondo State Govt Re-Awards Contract for Oba-Ile-Airport Road Project

The Ondo State Government has re-awarded the contract for the construction of the nine kilometres dual carriage Oba-Ile-Airport road in Akure North Local Government Area of the State.

The state Commissioner for Works, Mr Gboye Adegbenro, who disclosed this in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Akure on Sunday, said the road would cost N4billion.

Adegbenro explained that the state government re-awarded the contract to CGC Nig. Ltd. because the former contractor failed to deliver on schedule.

He expressed the belief that the road would be completed on schedule this time round, given the capacity and sophistication of the equipment being used by the new contractor.

The commissioner added that the contractor was working assiduously, in accordance with the directive from the state government, to ensure the completion of the project by November.

Adegbenro said that the state’s Ministry of Works would monitor the project to ensure quality, adding that the road would enhance transportation in the state.

He said that the state government was constructing other roads in the three senatorial districts, adding that most of them had reached completion stage.

“This administration has completed some of its road projects, including the 22.3-kilometre Ugbe-Iboropa-Ise road in Akoko North East Local Government Area”, he added.

Adegbenro called on the people to continue to support the administration of Gov. Olusegun Mimiko to enable him to deliver on his campaign promises. (NAN)
