Nasarawa - Governor Umaru Al-Makura of Nasarawa State on Monday revoked the contract for the construction of Nasarawa-Eggon township road.
Al-Makura, who announced the revocation when he visited the site in Nasarawa-Eggon, said it became necessary following the inability of the contractor to meet specification.
He expressed dissatisfaction with pace of work, adding that the contractor had abandoned the site.
"The essence of awarding this contract is to ensure that every local government benefited from "our three to five kilometres of asphalted roads before the end of the year.
"But from the look of things, the contractor is bringing us backward and so, I am directing the immediate revocation of the contract”, Al-Makura said.
The governor directed Adamu Sule, Managing Director of the State Urban Development Board, to commence arrangement for the immediate takeover of the road.
Sule had explained that the contractor had received N80million for the project.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the three-kilometre Nasarawa-Eggon road contract was awarded in February.
